      The full name have two LDAP Attributes that are cn and name
      CN is canonical name & it has to be unique where as display name is a name.

      Display name can be same where as CN should be unique.

      The dissimilarity in the attribute/ldap new is to maintain uniqueness among all the attribute/objects.
