Novell e directory
Novell e directory s one of the services hat s specifically designed for the manage and efficient access of the multi computer systems and server. Earlier it was known as the Novell directory service. it works within the network for managing the control panel activities such as people, unit positioning, logical hierarchy construction. Workstations access, printers installations and configurations, voice and data devices, service, work groups and group activity management. It has the systematic object oriented database which represents the strengths and weaknesses of the systems. Novell e Directory is compatible with all software products X 500 configuration.
The novel e directory was conceptualized decades ago bout it was officially introduced in the 1993 and was proved as the most successful access and management service. Before the advent of this Service there were services before but none of them was capable of controlling multiple servers and computer setups remaining in the single network some ahs protocol restriction some has line restriction. Novell e directory is still the most dynamic single network multiple management technology service.
How Novell e Directory works
Novell e directory use its inheritance rights which are already installed in its programming to proceed its working, these rights permits the directory to compile and enter both internal and global access control for managing devices and processes. At the time of the request the targeted tree s located and then rights are assigned for the specific request. This application supports the division and partitioning of the access trees at any level of the working .exact replication function works here in responding to the other request and internal queries. Server replication makes use of many compute resource which can be master boot system or operating system too. In this processing security factors ad restrictions doesn’t matter sunless and until configured at maximum high rank. In short its working entirely depends on the replicas of the corporate or individual which might work wit the telephone number or complete address books. Novell has the capacity to store large amount of information related to the server and network configuration in the directory. Its hierarchy has the specifications at every level which specifies what type of information is to stored at each level. All the processes like user service authentication, Locating protocols, Encrypting key pairs, DNS configuration, LDAP server, Installation of Novell and respond back is divided at every level accordingly.
Functions it supports
Novell e directory supports all the main functions that typical access and control device must do that includes referential integrity, constraints, multi and master replication processing wit the components, single and multi module authentication and architecture configuration. The access resource by which it can easily access involves ODBC, SOAP, LDAP, JDBC and ADSI.
Every software has the software compatibility which means a suitable platform which would match wit its architecture and working. The Novell e directory also has some platform which can use its facilities to control and access. Some of the supported platforms are Windows 200,Win Serve version 2003,Linux internal serve, Red Hat Linux Version, novel NetWare applications, Solaris specially by Sun, Aix by internal business Machines, Hp UX. it also offers large application pool that can save he amount of user account information. At present the are most frequently used as email softwares.
The version 8 of Novell e Directory used the record based database for storing the information which is called Recman. This is completely based on the tracking systems most specifically found in NetWare as a built in function. The most recent invention of Novell appeared in 2006 it is embedded reprogrammable database which is flexible .this dynamic advancement allowed noel collaboration with the Linux and UNIX.
