Novell Directory Services

Novell Directory Services
   Abbreviated NDS. A distributed directory system from Novell, similar in scope and concept to the X.500 directory services specification. Originally designed for use with Novell NetWare, NDS is now available for several other platforms, including Microsoft Windows NT.
   NDS uses a distributed database known as the NetWare Directory Database (NDD) to keep track of all network objects, including servers, users, groups, printers, and other networked resources. This information is presented to the user as a collection of containers, arranged in a hierarchical structure according to the organization or corporation structure, and is known as the Directory Tree or simply as the Directory.
   Users no longer log in to a single server; they are authenticated by the network through NDS.
