  DS_UNKNOWN_NAME             = 0,
  DS_FQDN_1779_NAME           = 1,
  DS_NT4_ACCOUNT_NAME         = 2,
  DS_DISPLAY_NAME             = 3,
  DS_UNIQUE_ID_NAME           = 6,
  DS_CANONICAL_NAME           = 7,
  DS_USER_PRINCIPAL_NAME      = 8,
  DS_CANONICAL_NAME_EX        = 9,
  DS_SERVICE_PRINCIPAL_NAME   = 10,
  DS_SID_OR_SID_HISTORY_NAME  = 11,
  DS_DNS_DOMAIN_NAME          = 12
} DS_NAME_FORMAT;

Constants

DS_UNKNOWN_NAME

Indicates the name is using an unknown name type. This format can impact performance because it forces the server to attempt to match all possible formats. Only use this value if the input format is unknown.

DS_FQDN_1779_NAME

Indicates that the fully qualified distinguished name is used. For example:

CN=someone,OU=Users,DC=Engineering,DC=Fabrikam,DC=Com

DS_NT4_ACCOUNT_NAME

Indicates a Windows NT 4.0 account name. For example:

Engineering\someone

The domain-only version includes two trailing backslashes (\\).

DS_DISPLAY_NAME

Indicates a user-friendly display name, for example, Jeff Smith. The display name is not necessarily the same as relative distinguished name (RDN).

DS_UNIQUE_ID_NAME

Indicates a GUID string that the IIDFromString function returns. For example:

{4fa050f0-f561-11cf-bdd9-00aa003a77b6}

DS_CANONICAL_NAME

Indicates a complete canonical name. For example:

engineering.fabrikam.com/software/someone

The domain-only version includes a trailing forward slash (/).

DS_USER_PRINCIPAL_NAME

Indicates that it is using the user principal name (UPN). For example:

someone@engineering.fabrikam.com

DS_CANONICAL_NAME_EX

This element is the same as DS_CANONICAL_NAME except that the rightmost forward slash (/) is replaced with a newline character (\n), even in a domain-only case. For example:

engineering.fabrikam.com/software\nsomeone

DS_SERVICE_PRINCIPAL_NAME

Indicates it is using a generalized service principal name. For example:

www/www.fabrikam.com@fabrikam.com

DS_SID_OR_SID_HISTORY_NAME

Indicates a Security Identifier (SID) for the object. This can be either the current SID or a SID from the object SID history. The SID string can use either the standard string representation of a SID, or one of the string constants defined in Sddl.h. For more information about converting a binary SID into a SID string, see SID Strings. The following is an example of a SID string:

S-1-5-21-397955417-626881126-188441444-501

DS_DNS_DOMAIN_NAME
