We have a scenario where we want an AD user account to have local admin rights on the mac for Installing software.

We have Mac Pro, OS X 10.6.3 and a windows AD network.

Logging in to the mac using the AD username and password works fine. As does single sign on with network shares. The following behaviour occurs for a user who is listed in the Open Directory utility as (a) being listed as a user as an admin, and (b) being a member of a group listed as an admin.

However, when installing software (or anything that requires admin privileges) we found:
[*]logging in as user = "Firstname Lastname" (which appears by default) does not work.
[*]logging in as user = "domain/firstname.lastname" does work
[*]logging in as user = "firstname.lastname" does work.

Is there any way to have the Security framework work with all user names?
Or at least have it default to "firstname.username" instead of "Firstname Lastname"?
