Novell eDirectory (formerly Novell Directory Services- NDS) is employed by system administrator to define users on the network and links those same users to their access rights with corporate resources, devices like printers and security policies. Novell eDirectory is comparable to Microsoft's Active Directory and is designed for large-scale, high-end directory deployments. Its strengths are scalability and reliability, a flexible yet strong security architecture, compatibility with key industry standards and operating systems.
Novell's Guide to Troubleshooting eDirectory is the definitive source for information on eDirectory troubleshooting techniques. It is the single stop reference covering topics from good design to proactive/reactive problem resolution. All of the information presented in this book has been gathered from hands-on, real world experiences of the authors.
