By default CA DataMinder utilizes LDAP lookups to locate address details for the Compose E-Mail functionality in the CA DataMinder iConsole.  In some enterprise deployments involving complex LDAP branch structures the LDAP tree may fail to be traversed fully resulting in some addresses being missed from the address list. 


To address this issue an enhancement has been added to Create/Update a DWORD registry key "UseGlobalCatalog" this will be an optional registry key, Setting this to 1 will mean that the iConsole will use Windows Global Catalog to perform LDAP searches.


After FIX:RO76753 (incorporating Web_14.5_HF091.msp) has been deployed a registry hive DWORD key can be employed to set the Windows Global Catalog as the default search mechanism.


Installation instructions:

1. Create Registry key "UseGlobalCatalog" Specifically under the following registry hive locations :


32bit deployments:   

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates \CA DataMinder\Current Version\web   


64bit deployments:   

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\ComputerAssociates\CA DataMinder\Current Version\web


2. Download and extract

3. Apply Web_14.5_HF091.msp to machines where the iConsole is deployed.



a. Further installation details can be found in the CA DataMinder 14.5 Platform Deployment Guide chapter "Applying Hotfixes" which is available from the CA DataMinder r14.5 Documentation Bookshelf.
