IssueHow does RSA ClearTrust Agent 3.5.1 for BEA WebLogic 8.1 handle users NOT in the LDAP datastore?
CauseFrom the RSA ClearTrust Agent 3.5.1 for BEA WebLogic 8.1 Installation and Configuration Guide, page 8, step 4 reads as follows:

"4. Create all WebLogic Server users as RSA ClearTrust users. Each RSA ClearTrust user name must exactly match its corresponding WebLogic Server user name."
ResolutionIf you are using Radiant Logic metadirectory providing LDAP datastore that ClearTrust uses to access its user information and entitlements, there is no need create new matching users specifically to be used by ClearTrust for authentication purposes, as the datastore is one and the same.

If you have users created initially within the WebLogic server that you want to be used by ClearTrust for the authentication process, these WebLogic users must be created within the ClearTrust datastore. These users must be created according to the installation instructions written above in step 4 of the Installation Guide.
