When you try to use a user account whose user name contains Japanese characters or Korean characters to log on to the Microsoft Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG) 2007 portal, the logon fails.
In this situation, you can select and add the user account to the Users/Groups list on the Authorization tab of the Whale Portal application in the portal UI. However, even if you have added the user account to the list, you still cannot use this user account to log on.
You try to use a user account to log on to the IAG 2007 portal. If the group name or the organizational unit (OU) name of the user account includes Japanese characters or Korean characters, the logon fails.
In this situation, when you view the Authorization tab of the Whale Portal application in the portal UI, the user name or the group name appears as "?????" in the Users/Groups list. Additionally, even if you have added the user account or the group to the list, the logon fails.
This problem occurs because the current version of IAG 2007 does not support a logon name that includes multibyte characters.
To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
Install Update 1 for IAG 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2).

Double byte user ID (account)
Double byte user display name
Double byte group name
Double byte OU name
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

IAG 2007 does not work correctly when you use Kerberos authentication in multibyte scenarios.
In some cases, you must change the Regional and Language Options settings before you install IAG 2007 SP2 Update1. To do this, follow these steps.
