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
Verifier Name: Nevil Brownlee

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."

Notes:

There's a spelling mismatch in capitalization:
'temporary' <--> 'Temporary'

(1)  Section 3.1 -- word omission in DESC

On page 9, the RFC says:

   ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.11.1.3.1.1.15 NAME 'serviceAuthenticationMethod'
|    DESC 'Specifies types authentication methods either
     used, required, or supported by a particular service'
     EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
     SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 )

It should say:

   ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.11.1.3.1.1.15 NAME 'serviceAuthenticationMethod'
|    DESC 'Specifies types of authentication methods either
     used, required, or supported by a particular service'
     EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
     SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 )


(2)  Section 4.6 -- typo/grammar

On page 19, just above the headline 'Example:', the RFC says:

|        The authors' belief that the user community is more familiar
         with the search filter syntax described by RFC 4515 than with
         that described by the enhancedSearchGuide syntax.

It should say either:

|        The authors' belief is that the user community is more familiar
         with the search filter syntax described by RFC 4515 than with
         that described by the enhancedSearchGuide syntax.

or, even simpler:

|        The authors believe that the user community is more familiar
         with the search filter syntax described by RFC 4515 than with
         that described by the enhancedSearchGuide syntax.


(3)  Section 4.13 -- missing articles

On page 26, the RFC says:

   Example:

      Suppose a DUA is acting on behalf of an email service.  By default
      the "email" service uses the "mail", "cn", and "sn" attributes to
|     discover mail addresses in entries created using inetOrgPerson
      object class [RFC2789].  However, the email service has been
|     deployed in an environment that uses entries created using
      "employee" object class.  [...]

It should perhaps better say:

      Suppose a DUA is acting on behalf of an email service.  By default
      the "email" service uses the "mail", "cn", and "sn" attributes to
|     discover mail addresses in entries created using the inetOrgPerson
      object class [RFC2789].  However, the email service has been
|     deployed in an environment that uses entries created using the
      "employee" object class.  [...]

It should say:

[see above]
