Join domain active directory -- Error

Not able to join domain…when i look into “FOG System Settings” – Active Directory Defaults
**On FOG_AD_DEFAULT_USER if we enter “domain\username” (double slash)
is coming (e.g.domain\\username ) if give again save changes "domain\\\\username " (four slash)is coming, IF again give save changes “domain\\\\\\\\username” (eight slash) is coming
@Tom-Elliott super g8
@Satheesh Not will, already did
@Avaryan : Yes I have tried by removing domain in FOG_AD_DEFAULT_USER it’s worked. Tom Elliott will find the solution for this.
So I found the thing adding the slashes erroneously. It should be fixed in the working branch if you’d like to install it to give it a shot.
The correct method is to do the non-domain setting though FOG does support this capability.
The problem is how php deals with escape characters, however. The
\is the default escape character in PHP. Because of this, to display a single
\you must actually display
\\. This is great for non-input fields, but in text fields it shows the raw data. Unfortunately there’s not a pretty way to handle this .
@Satheesh So, I just checked my 1.4.0 test server and had the same thing. My only thought is that maybe they don’t want you putting DOMAIN\ into that field. There is the FOG_AD_DEFAULT_DOMAINNAME above it. Probably goes there.
FOG_AD_DEFAULT_DOMAINNAME = DOMAIN
FOG_AD_DEFAULT_USER = USER
edit: Just checked my live server and I do not have the domain name in the user field. For domainname field I have domain.com
