Good day Andrew & Kamen. Please note that my colleague Sebastian (who took ownership of this case from Obaid) is out of the office for the next few days.

In the interim, I will be your contact. Thanks in advance for your patience!

Andrew - I sent a status update request for the TDI (which has been in suspense since one of your previous emails (shown at the end of this message). I will advise you as soon as I receive a response.

Kamen - I have already performed some investigation concerning those 20 other prefixMap entries, and expect to follow up with your tomorrow morning.

Hi Obaid,

Could you please point out where those default 39 entries for prefixMap are described?
I am looking at: <http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc228445%28PROT.13%29.aspx>
and there are only 19 default prefixes listed here.

As a start: 

The ability to generate a matching prefixMap attribute, should any client request it.  The ability to verify prefixMap values over DRS and LDAP to confirm consistency.  The ability to include prefixMap values in comparison tests we may make between AD and Samba4.  An understanding of how the contents of this attribute interacts with msDs-intID and other prefix mapping functionality. 

Finally, I'm simply looking to ensure that the documentation set explains the format of every value (generated or otherwise) in AD, so we don't have to come back to this later.
