User Binding Fails on Windows due to Username Length


  • When user is bound to a Windows system, the user is not provisioned
  • System and user status is green
  • Other users may be able to provision to the system without issue
  • The JumpCloud Agent log c:\windows\temp\jcagent.log will show:

The username contains more than 20 characters.


Recreate the user with less than 20 characters in the username.  In mixed or Windows only environments, it's recommended to use a naming convention for the Username to not exceed 20 characters.
