      Description

      Original Description

      Customers whose LDAP server credentials have passwords containing "special" characters (e.g., "!", "&", likely others) have encountered configuration issues when they do not put the value of security.ldap.bind.{{queryPassword }}in single quotes.  (Refer to case 00513474 for an example)

      This should probably be at least mentioned in the documentation.  At a minimum here:

      https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/configuration-options/#security.ldap.bind.queryPassword

      Perhaps also in tutorials. etc., discussing LDAP configuration.

      (Applies to all versions since 3.4)
