Configurable characters used in specific ADB designations. These are configurable, but we recommend using the default values.

  • DomainSeparator: Character used to designate the domain name separator.
  • SpaceReplacement: Character used to designate space characters in the name of an object.

The DomainSeparator and SpaceReplacement characters should never overlap characters used in any of the following: LDAP CN, distinguishedName, SamAccountName, UPN, uid, displayName.

For more information about configurable characters usage in ADB, please see Lsaas in the Configuration Tool Reference Guide.
