Limitation of CN length in eDirectory

Novell’s eDirectory has limitation of CN length to 64 characters. That is enough for common objects.

However, in my application I auto-generated CN out of some long string. I wanted management groups for user containers of a deep tree (5 levels e.g. ou=Happy Branch,ou=Berline,ou=DE,ou=Europe,o=Company). For some practical and user’s reasons I didn’t want to copy the container tree structure, so I created objects at the same level with CN made out in reverse – e.g. Europe-DE-Berlin-Happy Branch. But for some groups their CN got over 64 letters, and that failed. So I created region containers for them and then I created the groups under those region containers, with CN e.g. DE-Berlin-Happy Branch. Problem solved!

  1. This app is well known for the free version which frequently covers 10 quantities.
    If you are using Outlook Express for the personal or professional use, I would recommend that you just don’t rely solely
    on its spam filters and purchase a professional spam blocker software to
    battle spam more effectively. To fill the background,
    you will require a screensaver or wallpaper approximately 1200×1600.
