8.14 Placement - Publisher Mirrored

8.14.3 How the Rule Works

If the User object resides in the source hierarchy, the object is placed in the mirrored structure from the data store. The placement starts at the point that the local variable dest-base is defined. It places the User object in the location of dest-base\unmatched source DN. The rule uses the slash format.
