LDAP groupDN Mappings not Working for "DevTest Administrator" role

Have LDAP goupDN set for role "DevTest Administrator" .

When logging in to DevTest with credentials with this role to the Workstation get this error:

User does not have permission to use DevTest Workstation with this registry.  Please contact your DevTest administrator. [user=XXXXXXX]

When logging in to Portal, allows log in, but role assigned is Default Role.
There is an issue with the "DevTest Administrator" role with LDAP.
The Workaround is to not define a groupDN in the ldap-mappings.xml file for role "DevTest Administrator" but if these privileges are needed, create a new custom role in the Portal with the same privileges as "DevTest Administrator".

Add this new role to the ldap-mappings.xml file and assign the groupDN that needs the privileges of this role.

This defect, DE372565, has been reported for both DevTest 10.1.0, 10.2.4 and DevTest 10.3.0.
