CoS Priorities

It is possible to create CoS schemes that compete with each other to provide an attribute value. For example, you might have a multivalued cosSpecifier in your CoS definition entry. In such a case, you can specify a template priority on each template entry to determine which template provides the attribute value. Set the template priority using the cosPriority attribute. This attribute represents the global priority of a particular template numerically. A priority of zero is the highest possible priority.

Templates that contain no cosPriority attribute are considered the lowest possible priority. In the case where two or more templates are considered to supply an attribute value and they have the same (or no) priority, a value is chosen arbitrarily. Directory Server can be configured to log messages when it is forced to choose a template arbitrarily.
