2.369 Attribute wellKnownObjects

This attribute specifies a list of well-known object containers by GUID and distinguished name. The well-known objects are system containers. This information is used to retrieve an object after it has been moved by using just the GUID and the domain name. Whenever the object is moved, the Active Directory system [MS-ADOD] will automatically update the distinguished name portion of the Well-Known-Objects values that referred to the object. For information on well-known objects, well-known GUIDs, and their symbolic names, see [MS-ADTS] section
