Have you ever wondered how to sort out all the eDirectory version numbers and match them up with the DS version numbers?

With the introduction of eDirectory 8.6, all eDirectory components have newer marketing and build version formats. These formats are meant to eliminate any confusion for future releases. TID 10066623 provides information on this new versioning standard and why it has changed. It contains a table that helps you keep track of which versions are included with each eDirectory product or patch.

NOTE: The versions in the table are for the NetWare and the Windows platform, with the only difference being the extension of .DLM instead of .NLM. The UNIX platforms tend to be slightly different in the versions used.

Here is a handy diagram that also illustrates and compares the eDirectory versions:
