Better LDAP integration in the HMC

We tried to use LDAP Remote User Management as authentication for the HMC.
Unfortunately the way the attribute for the task role is implemented is not practical.
It has to be possible to give a "cn" in a specified "ou" to look for the task role and other settings. The implementation as it is is nonsense.
