FromRFC4524: "The homePostalAddress attribute specifies home postal addresses for an object. Each value should be limited to up to 6 directory strings of 30 characters each. (Note: It is not intended that the directory service enforce these limits.)"


  • In the Switch edu-ID federation, the limitation 'up to 6 lines of 30 characters' is not relevant.
