Overview#The MMC General Tab for Microsoft Active Directory
The "naming" attribute within Microsoft Active Directory is the CN attribute.
If we have a user that shows in the MMC as "Jim Willeke", then his DN is:
dn: CN=Jim Willeke,CN=Users,DC=mad,DC=willeke,DC=comAnd his CN is:
cn: Jim WillekeThe user would look like this in the MMC
LDAP Names#These are the LDAP Attribute Names that Relate to the MMC Page:
- name -" LDAP attribute "name" is always the same value as the "naming" value which in the case of a USER entry is the value of the CN. (name: jim)
- distinguishedName - This is the DN of the entry. (distinguishedName: CN=jim,CN=Users,DC=mad,DC=willeke,DC=com)
