Object(DS-DN) syntax

String that contains a distinguished name (DN). For attributes with this syntax, Active Directory handles attribute values as references to the object identified by the DN and automatically updates the value if the object is moved or renamed. For queries that include attributes of DN syntax in a filter, specify full distinguished names. Wildcards (for example, cn=John*) are not supported.
