Enterprise Aliases for Windows AD Users in BI 4.1

I was referring to BI 4.1 Admin guide for Windows AD setup and I need one clarification on the aliases. When we import windows AD users to SAP BI 4.1, will it automatically create an Enterprise alias? or it will just create a windows AD alias? If it creates enterprise alias, what would be the password for that user?

    If you don't want to mess with JSP pages, you can now use the BI Platform Support Tool to create enterprise aliases for any authtype.

    Enterprise Alise will not be automatically created.

    You will have to create though script or JSP.

    Once you use the JSP it will give you an option to put the default Password for Enterprise Alise.
