Description To Ngan 2005-04-07 23:46:42 UTC
Description of problem:
Log in to console as admin or directory manager and bring up DS console, then
"Log in as New User" and auth as a regular user.

On most panels the normal user can't do anything, but on the Tasks tap, the
stop/start/restart buttons works.  Even changing cert db passwd works too. 
He/she can also get to the admin console and change admin user id/passwd, and
admin port, etc.

Note that if a normal user run startconsole and authenticate in that way, he/she
won't be able to bring up DS console at all.  Only limited access to Users and
Groups panel in the admin console.

This is most likely not a regression, and may not be common use case anyway. 
The only risk is an admin user switch or give control of the consoles to a
regular user this way and assumes the regular user can't do anything.

How reproducible:
