Can another attribute other than UPN be used to authenticate LDAP user?

I have implemented and tested LDAP on a Brocade switch in pre-production and it works fine. I followed the intstructions from

53-1001763-02 13 September 2010 Fabric OS AG.

I then configured the switches in Production but the LDAP sign on is not working. After researching this issue, I found out that

"If the user you created is not a member of the Users OU then the User Principal Name, in the format of "user@domain", is required to login". The problem being that in production the User Principal Name is now "some#@at.different.domain" used for PIV authentication and that is the reason I cannot log into the Brocade switches via LDAP. Can I use sAMAccountName attribute to authenticate against instead of User Principal Name; if so, how do accomplish this?
