Adding Active Directory Groups in vRA 7.0 containing the pound (#) symbol fails (2142946)

  • 0 Ratings


  • Adding a group with a # in the name to VMware vRealize Automation to the Business or Fabric group will disappear after refreshing the group. 
  • Adding a group with a # in the name to VMware vRealize Automation to the Custom group fails with the error:

    test#group@domain does not exist!
  • This issue does not occur when adding a group without a #.


This issue is resolved in vRealize Automation 7.0.1, available at VMware Downloads.  

To work around the issue if you do not want to upgrade, avoid using a # when creating groups.
