Legal RGM Names

This section lists the requirements for legal characters for Resource Group Manager (RGM) names and values.

RGM Legal Names

    RGM names fall into the following categories:

  • Resource group names

  • Resource type names

  • Resource names

  • Property names

  • Enumeration literal names

Rules for Names Except Resource Type Names

    Except for resource type names, all names must comply with these rules:

  • Names must be in ASCII.

  • Names must start with a letter.

  • Names can contain uppercase and lowercase letters, digits, dashes (-), and underscores (_).

  • The maximum number of characters that you can use in a name is 255.

Format of Resource Type Names

    The format of the complete name of a resource type depends on the resource type, as follows:

  • If the resource type's resource type registration (RTR) file contains the #$upgrade directive, the format is as follows:

    vendor-id.base-rt-name:rt-version
  • If the resource type's RTR file does not contain the #$upgrade directive, the format is as follows:

    vendor-id.base-rt-name

A period separates vendor-id and base-rt-name. A colon separates base-rt-name and rt-version.

The variable elements in this format are as follows:

vendor-id

Specifies the vendor ID prefix, which is the value of the Vendor_id resource type property in the RTR file. If you are developing a resource type, choose a vendor ID prefix that uniquely identifies the vendor, such as your company's stock ticker symbol.

base-rt-name

Specifies the base resource type name, which is the value of the Resource_type resource type property in the RTR file.

rt-version

Specifies the version suffix, which is the value of the RT_version resource type property in the RTR file. The version suffix is only part of the complete resource type name if the RTR file contains the #$upgrade directive.


Note - If only one version of a base resource type name is registered, you do not have to use the complete name in administrative commands. You can omit the vendor ID prefix, the version number suffix, or both.

For more information, see Resource Type Properties.

Example 2  Complete Name of a Resource Type With the #$upgrade Directive

    This example shows the complete name of a resource type for which properties in the RTR file are set, as follows:

  • Vendor_id=ORCL

  • Resource_type=sample

  • RT_version=2.0

The complete name of the resource type that is defined by this RTR file is as follows:

ORCL.sample:2.0
Example 3  Complete Name of a Resource Type Without the #$upgrade Directive

    This example shows the complete name of a resource type for which properties in the RTR file are set, as follows:

  • Vendor_id=ORCL

  • Resource_type=abc

The complete name of the resource type that is defined by this RTR file is as follows:

ORCL.abc

RGM Values

    RGM values fall into two categories: property values and description values. Both categories share the same rules:

  • Values must be in ASCII.

  • The maximum length of a value is 4 megabytes minus 1, that is, 4,194,303 bytes.

  • Values cannot contain the following characters:

    • Null

    • Newline

    • Comma (,)

    • Semicolon (;)
