Should the API ValidateCredentialsInGuest Work with Domain Based Users in Linux?

ValidateCredentialsInGuest is returning invalidguestlogin on a Linux system.

The system is configured to use a domain, and I can login via SSH as user@domain.com using login user (it goes through LDAP)... however, when I attempt to pass this via the ValidateCredentialsInGuest API I get the message it's invalid.

I can pass root or another non-root local user using the same same code.  I vaguely remember older versions of tools needing a reconfiguration to support this, but for the life of me can't find what that change is.

Here are the os/tools details
