NDS : Java Glossary


NDS (Novell Directory Services). Novell’s scheme for creating corporate-wide disk directories running on a variety of hardware. Node are classified in the following ways: In the [Root] of each Tree there can exist only two container object types, O and C (it’s the start of the hierarchy). The OU or C types can exist within O types and OU types can contain additional OU types for an even deeper structure. The C may contain O or L types and an L type may contain additional OU or L types and so on. Each of these containers, except for the T type, may contain CN types which represent users, groups, printers, servers, DNS (Domain Name Service) records, databases, software applications, security keys, profile objects and a variety of many other object types. Even your login name for FTP (File Transfer Protocol) has this structure.
