Re: Several name forms for a structural object class?

Looking at section "Name Forms" in
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4512.txt it's not really clear to me whether
more than one name form may be associated with the same structural
object class. I think it's possible (and I've implemented it that way in
web2ldap) but the server I'm currently testing with disallows it.

Ciao, Michael.

See X.501 section 12.6.2 Name Form Definition:

If different sets of naming attributes are required for entries of a given structural object class, then a name form must be specified for each distinct set of attributes to be used for naming.
