Relative Distinguised Name

From RFC2251, Section 4,6, “Modify Operation”:

The Modify Operation cannot be used to remove from an entry any of its distinguised values, those values which form the entry’s relative distinguised name. An attempt to do so will result in the server returning the error notAllowedOnRDN. The Modify DN Operation described in section 4.9 is used to rename an entry.

From RFC2253, Section 2,2, “Converting RelativeDistinguishedName”:

When converting from an ASN.1 RelativeDistinguishedName to a string, the output consists of the string encodings of each AttributeTypeAndValue (according to 2.3), in any order.

Where there is a multi-valued RDN, the outputs from adjoining AttributeTypeAndValues are separated by a plus (‘+’ ASCII 43) character.

  1. But was it a hate crime and are we being played by people with other agendas? It is wrong that anyone gets beaten up, but I sense there are other agendas at work here as well. It is THAT to which I object. I also, frankly, object to being required to know the difference between a cross-dresser and a transgendered person. You don’t get to sit in some morally superior position just because you are theoretically enlightened as to these fine distinctions and are somehow, thereby, more sensitive. How about the rest of us who have had it up to here with having to swallow all these agendas, and have forced upon us all these required sensitivities to things. Things that seem not only mystifying, but also, just plain disordered.

  2. friend, I really like the manner in which you have highlighted this particular issue in additon it really does furnish me ample ammunition for consideration. Nonetheless, from everything that I have observed, I simply trust when the following comments pack on that men and women keep on issue and not embark upon a soap box of some other news of the day. However, thank you for this superb coverage and whilst I might not fully concur with your comments in totality, I regard the viewpoint.
