Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Administration Guide


The container entry is used when, due to object class and attribute differences, it is not possible to use an organization entry. It is important to remember that the Access Manager container entry and the Access Manager organization entry are not necessarily equivalent to the LDAP object classes organizationalUnit and organization. They are abstract identity entries. Ideally, the organization entry will be used instead of the container entry.

Note –

The display of containers is optional. To view containers you must select Show Containers in the Administration service under Configuration>Console Properties.
