The fully qualified distinguished name (for example, CN=Jeff Smith,OU=Users,DC=Engineering,DC=Microsoft,DC=Com).
NameSamCompatible
Value: 2
A legacy account name (for example, Engineering\JSmith). The domain-only version includes trailing backslashes (\).
NameDisplay

Value: 7
The complete canonical name (for example, engineering.microsoft.com/software/someone). The domain-only version includes a trailing forward slash (/).
NameUserPrincipal
Value: 8
The user principal name (for example, someone@example.com).
NameCanonicalEx
Value: 9
The same as NameCanonical except that the rightmost forward slash (/) is replaced with a new line character (\n), even in a domain-only case (for example, engineering.microsoft.com/software\nJSmith).
NameServicePrincipal
Value: 10
The generalized service principal name (for example, www/www.microsoft.com@microsoft.com).
NameDnsDomain
