For help in understanding the attribute definition template, see Reading NDS Attribute Type Definitions.

This attribute is used to manage the case where an object loses its GUID, has another one generated, and then the old GUID is recovered or restored. This attribute will store the recovered GUIDs so that an object can be accessed by the new one (stored in the GUID attribute) and the recovered one (stored in this attribute).

The octet string is sized at 16 octets and has the same format as the GUID attribute.

For LDAP clients to access this attribute, the LDAP server must be configured to map the attribute to a name without spaces or colons. The LDAP server in NDS eDirectory supports the Octet String syntax.
