ldap_ufn2dn function

The ldap_ufn2dn function converts a user-friendly name to a distinguished name.

Syntax


ULONG ldap_ufn2dn(
  _In_   PCHAR ufn,
  _Out_  PCHAR *pDn
);

Parameters

ufn [in]

Pointer to a null-terminated string that contains the user-friendly name to convert.

pDn [out]

Pointer to a variable that receives a pointer to a null-terminated string that contains the resulting distinguished name.

If the pDn parameter returns non-NULL, free it with a call to ldap_memfree.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is LDAP_SUCCESS.

If the function fails, it returns an error code. For more information, see Return Values.

Remarks

The ldap_ufn2dn function attempts to normalize a user-specified name to a distinguished name. For example, consider an LDAP directory format for a common name of LastName, FirstName. Given a directory name of "Jeff Smith," ldap_ufn2dn will attempt to normalize this to "Smith, Jeff." The function follows RFC 1781; add CN= if not present, add OU= if none present, and so on. If it runs into any errors while normalizing, the function returns a copy of what was passed. It then allocates the output string from the LDAP memory pool.
