- eDirectorysearch for term
A distributed, replicated naming service that maintains information about and provides access to a list of objects that represent network resources, such as network users, servers, printers, print queues, and applications. The directory is physically stored as a set of database files on a server. If the server hosts file system volumes, these files are on volume sys:. If no volumes are present, the directory is stored on the server's local disk. eDirectory tightly integrates Novell Security Services for e-commerce (PKI, cryptography, and authentication services), allowing developers to build applications that can be accessed and managed across the entire network through explicit policies.
