Correction for [MS-OXCDATA] section 2.2.5.1 (One-Off EntryID) RRS feed

  • Question

  • In reference to [MS-OXCDATA] section 2.2.5.1 seen here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee202811%28v=EXCHG.80%29.aspx

    It shows that the display name starts at offset 23, but in practice I have seen that it starts at offset 24.  It appears that the mistake in the documentation is that it says the version is only 1 byte, but really the version is 2 bytes.

    Another error is that it says the MAE mask is 0x0C00, but that doesn't make sense because then it would overlap with the Format.  I believe it is supposed to say the mask is 0x6000.

    Please make these corrections for the next revision of this document.

  • Hi Starshock,

     

    Investigation into this issue for [MS-OXCDATA] section 2.2.5.1 confirms the document is incorrect for Version, as you point out, and will be corrected.  Version is a two byte field - If that change is made the rest of the flags that follow Version in that section of the packet (Pad, MAE, Format, M, U, R, L and the final Pad) will line up with the masks that are given in the diagram.

     

    I hope this resolves your issue.
