      add element - Adds an element to a profile in a name service entry; if
      the specified entry does not exist, creates the entry.

      rpccp add element	  profile-entry-name -m member {-d | -i if-id [-p
      [-a annotation] [-s  syntax ]

      -m	Defines a member name for the profile element to be added

      -d	Performs the add element operation on the default profile
		element. With the -d option, the -i and -p options are

      -i	Defines an interface identifier for the profile element to
		be added.  Only one interface can be added in a single
		operation.  An interface identifier is required, unless the
		default profile element is being added. With the -d option,
		the -i option is ignored.

		The value has the following form:


		The UUID is a hexadecimal string and the version numbers are
		a decimal string, for example:

		-i ec1eeb60-5943-11c9-a309-08002b102989,3.11

		Leading zeros in version numbers are ignored.

      -p	Defines a search priority for the new profile element.	The
		priority value is in the range 0 to 7, with zero having the
		highest priority. When a default element is added (with the
		-d option), the -p option is ignored. By default, a
		nondefault element is assigned a priority value of zero.

      -a	Defines an annotation string for the profile element.

		Note that the shell supports quotation marks around the
		annotation field of profile elements, which allows you to
		include internal spaces in an annotation; the control
		program does not.  To specify or refer to annotations from
		within the control program, limit each annotation to an
		unbroken alphanumeric string; for example, CalendarGroup.
		To refer to annotations from the system prompt, do not
		incorporate quotation marks into any annotation.

      -s	Indicates the name syntax of the entry name (optional). The
		only value for this option is the dce name syntax, which is
		the default name syntax. Until an alternative name syntax
		becomes available, specifying the -s option is unnecessary.

		Specifies the entry name of the target profile.	 For an
		entry in the local cell, you can omit the cell name and
		specify only the cell-relative name.

      The add element command adds an element to a profile in a name service
      entry.  The name of the entry containing the profile and the entry
      name of the profile member in the new element are required.  The entry
      of a profile may have been created previously (by either the add entry
      or add element command).	But, if the specified entry does not exist,
      the add element command tries to create the entry.

      A profile element is a database record containing the following

      Interface identifier
		This is the primary search key.	 The interface identifier
		consists of the interface UUID and the interface version

      Member name
		The entry name of one of the following kinds of name service

		  +  A server entry for a server offering the requested RPC
		     interface and object

		  +  A group corresponding to the requested RPC interface

		  +  A profile

      Priority value
		The priority value (0 (zero) is the highest priority; 7 is
		the lowest) is designated by the creator of a profile
		element to help determine the order for using the element.
		NSI search operations select among like priority elements at
		random.	 For the rpccp add element command, the default is

      Annotation string
		The annotation string enables you to identify the purpose of
		the profile element. The annotation can be any textual
		information, for example, an interface name associated with
		the interface identifier or a description of a service or
		resource associated with a group.  The annotation string is
		not a search key for the import or lookup operations.

    Privilege Required
      You need both read permission and write permission to the CDS object
      entry (the target profile entry).	 If the entry does not exist, you
      also need insert permission to the parent directory.

      This command is replaced at Revision 1.1 by the dcecp command and may
      not be provided in future releases of DCE.

      The following command adds an element to the cell profile, /cell-
      profile, in the local cell:

      pccp>&gt&gt> add element	 \
       -i ec1eeb60-5943-11c9-a309-08002b102989,1.1  \
       -m /.:/Calendar_profile	\
       -a RefersToCalendarGroups  \

      The following control program commands start the control program, set
      up a user profile associated with the cell profile as its default
      element, and add a user-specific element for the Calendar V1.1
      interface, as follows:

      pccp>&gt&gt>  add element  /.:/LandS/anthro/molly_o_profile  \
       -d   -m	/.:/cell-profile
      pccp>&gt&gt>  add element  /.:/LandS/anthro/molly_o_profile  \
       -m  /.:/LandS/anthro/Calendar_group  \
       -i  ec1eeb60-5943-11c9-a309-08002b102989,1.1  \
       -a  Calendar_Version 1.1_Interface

      The added profile element contains the global name of the member
      (specified using its cell-relative name,
      /.:/LandS/anthro/Calendar_group) and the RPC interface identifier for
      the Calendar Version 1.1 interface.
