Renaming a Directory Object

The following code example renames the DSMLSamples object to DSMLTesting in the LDAP directory.

<se:Envelope xmlns:se="">
   <se:Body xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:DSML:2:0:core">
	<batchRequest xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:DSML:2:0:core" xmlns:xsd="">
		 <modDNRequest dn="ou=DSMLSamples,dc=fabrikam,dc=com" newrdn="ou=DSMLTesting"/>

The <se:Envelope> and <se:Body> SOAP elements enclose the DSML payload. The first element of the DSML payload, <batchRequest>, is the mandatory top-level element for all DSML V2 requests. The <modDNRequest> element renames the DSMLSamples object to DSMLTesting.
