      Description

      I have Nexus 3 milestone 7 configured to use Active Directory as an LDAP provider. User logins seem to work with the exception of a few users. After investigation it was determined that those users all had either a '<' or a '>' in their password. Digging in deeper I was able to validate that those characters do not cause login failures for users that are created in the local Nexus user directory. However, for users that are authenticated against the Active Directory external provider, they fail every time.
