Subject [2/4] git commit: updated refs/heads/master to c7d1b81
Date Wed, 04 May 2016 14:23:52 GMT
Merge pull request #1485 from remibergsma/fix-ldap-default-domain

Set default networkDomain to empty instead of usernameThe 10th field of `createUserAccount`
is `networkDomain` (See ``) and it is set to a var named `admin`, which
is the user name.
So, the first user that is created in a domain that links to LDAP, creates the account within
the domain, and sets the `networkDomain` field to the username. All next users are created
in the same account.

Then we have the situation that in domain SBP we have a user `rbergsma` that logs in first,
gets an account created and then (unless you override) all VMs started in the SBP domain will
have network domain `rbergsma`. That is highly confusing and not what is should be.

The `linkDomainToLdap` api call has no `networkDomain` field, so I propose to make this field
empty (set it to null). It's a sting and null / empty is allowed.

One can also specify the networkDomain when creating a VPC and also there it is allowed to
be null.

When te networkDomain is needed (and is not set in the domain and not in the VPC) it is constructed
by using `guest.domain.suffix` so there always is a networkDomain to be used.

It makes more sense to manually set it on a domain level, or specify it on the VPC and in
the final case end up with something that is clearly generated (like cs342cloud.local) rather
than the username of someone else.

* pr/1485:
  Set default networkDomain to empty instead of username
