8 Examples of DN in string representation

This subclause gives a few examples of DN written in the string representation specified in the present document.

EXAMPLE 1: “DC=com,DC=CompanyXYZ,DC=Marketing,IRPAgent=ATMPVCBilling,Log=19990101131000,AccountingRecord=100098”. In this example, the name space aligns with DNS. The AttributeType of the top three RDN are “DC”. Concatenation of the corresponding AttributeValues produces the DNS registered name, i.e. “marketing.companyXYZ.com”. The top RDN is the Global Root because DNS defines “DC=com” as the root of its name space. That top RDN is the Local Root as well.

EXAMPLE 2: “DC=marketing.CompanyXYZ.com,IRPAgent=ATMPVCBilling,Log=19990101131000,AccountingRecord=100098”. In this example, the name space aligns with DNS as well. Instead of using three RDNs to represent the DNS registered name, this example chooses to use one RDN. The top RDN is the Global Root (and Local Root as well).

EXAMPLE 3: “IRPNetwork=ABCNetwork,Subnet=TN2,BSS=B5C0100”. In this example, the name space designer chooses not to name its objects under the DNS nor X.500 scheme. The name space designer chooses to use “IRPNetwork=ABCNetwork” as the Local Root of its name space (by looking at the DN string, it is not possible to say if the Local Root is the Global Root). DNs in this name space will start with that string as their Local Root. One string (“IRPNetwork”) for AttributeType (of the AttributeTypeAndValue of the RDN) starts with “IRP”. This indicates that this string is mapped from the MO class names specified in NRM of [9]. Other strings do not start with “IRP”, indicating that those strings are not mapped from MO class names specified in NRM of [9]. They are probably mapped from MO classes that are specific for a particular product and thus specified in a product-specific NRM (MIM).

EXAMPLE 4: The following example illustrates the use of “,” as separator for RDNs. It also illustrates the use of space and period as part of the legal character syntax for RDNs.
