Amogh, can you retest this for 5.6/5.7 and make sure we have test case(s) in place please.

Is this how both users appear in IPA?
So in looking at the user records, neither user has a mail attribute. So when trying to authenticate via LDAP, it can't find the requested email attribute for the user, so it fails appropriately.

R&D will have to verify when the IPA change is rolled out.
