eDirectory Libraries for C

eDirectory® Libraries for C enables administrators to manage networks globally rather than server by server, because, by logging in to the network rather than to individual servers, users can access global network services.

eDirectory Libraries for C provides a comprehensive set of APIs for viewing, modifying, and managing NDS components, including the following:

  • Objects in the NDS database with their attributes and values
  • Replicas, partitions, and their synchronization
  • Schema syntaxes, attributes, object classes, extensions, and synchronization
  • NDS Event Services
  • NDS Backup Services


Your use of these files is subject to the Novell Developer License Agreement unless different license terms accompany the file itself, in which case those terms govern.
