RFC 4876, "A Configuration Profile Schema for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)-Based Agents", May 2007

Source of RFC: INDEPENDENT

Errata ID: 989
Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported By: Alfred Hoenes
Date Reported: 2007-05-27

Appendix A says:

Example 4:

|  serviceSearchDescriptor: email:ou=\\mar\\\\keting,\\"?base
   attributeMap: email:cn=name

|  base: ou=\\mar\\keting,"
   scope: base
   filter (&(objectclass=inetOrgPerson)(name~=Jane Hernandez))

It should say:

    serviceSearchDescriptor: email:ou=\\mar\\\\keting\",?base
    attributeMap: email:cn=name

    base: ou=\mar\\keting",o=airius.com
    scope: base
    filter (&(objectclass=inetOrgPerson)(name~=Jane Hernandez))

Notes:

Issues:

- unescaping of `\\mar` should give `\mar` , not `\\mar`
- to obtain `ing,"` , the escaped version should be `ing,\"'
(This presentation is biased to attribute one error each to the
two tagged lines - you might have intended another version.)

Discussed this with author, corrected version as above, with comment
"I have moved the quote to before the comma (since that is more of a
constructive example) and properly escaped it, as well as properly
processed the first escaped backslash."
