    That is not a good idea. CN is not unique so you shouldn't use it as login. Example:

    CN=John Doe
    samaccountname = jd1

    CN=John Doe
    samaccountname = jd2

    So CN as login username will not be supported since this could lead to a lot of problems.

    To clearify this:

    Same CNs are allowed if they are in different OUs. Example:

    DN: CN=John Doe, OU=Management,DC=example,DC=com
    samaccountname: jd2

    is different from

    DN: CN=John Doe, OU=Sales,DC=example,DC=com
    samaccountname = jd2

    Within an Organizational Unit (OU) all CNs are unique, because every Distinguised Name (DN) has to be unique.
