Constants

NameUnknown

An unknown name type.

NameFullyQualifiedDN

The fully qualified distinguished name (for example, CN=Jeff Smith,OU=Users,DC=Engineering,DC=Microsoft,DC=Com).

NameSamCompatible

A legacy account name (for example, Engineering\JSmith). The domain-only version includes trailing backslashes (\\).

NameDisplay

A "friendly" display name (for example, Jeff Smith). The display name is not necessarily the defining relative distinguished name (RDN).

A GUID string that the IIDFromString function returns (for example, {4fa050f0-f561-11cf-bdd9-00aa003a77b6}).

NameCanonical

The complete canonical name (for example, engineering.microsoft.com/software/someone). The domain-only version includes a trailing forward slash (/).

NameUserPrincipal

The user principal name (for example, someone@example.com).

NameCanonicalEx

The same as NameCanonical except that the rightmost forward slash (/) is replaced with a new line character (\n), even in a domain-only case (for example, engineering.microsoft.com/software\nJSmith).

NameServicePrincipal

The generalized service principal name (for example, www/www.microsoft.com@microsoft.com).

NameDnsDomain

The DNS domain name followed by a backward-slash and the SAM user name.
