Description of problem:
Hello.
After installation of RHQ 4.9 I am seeing the following WARNings in the server log:

10:21:39,368 WARN  [org.jboss.security] (http-/0.0.0.0:7080-72) PBOX000234: Invalid or misspelled module option: BindDN

This is probably nothing serious, just a bit worrying, and it should not be in the logs if everything works as expected I would think?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHQ 4.9
RHEL 6.4
LDAP login to MS Active Directory

How reproducible:
Always, on login

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login to RHQ console with LDAP user.

This is unfortunately a misbehaving in the underlying AS code, where
the PicketBox code assumes a fixed number of valid options in a login module, which is extended by a number of other login modules.
WildFly will allow to supply a specialized list of allowed options, but AS7/EAP6 does not allow this and thus prints all those annoying warnings.

Those warnings are harmless and can be ignored.

We could suppress just all the warnings for org.jboss.security in the logs, to prevent that spamming, but that would also suppress warnings that are "serious".

We need at least document that those are harmless.

Thanks for the explanation Heiko.

I just wondered, and it's not a big deal for me, but I first noticed these warnings in 4.9 so I figured something was changed. At least I do not see them in our old 4.5.1 installations.

I would imagine it would confuse people that are having problems configuring their LDAP login correctly and they see these warnings and assume it is causing their problems.
