5.0 Configuring Role-Based Administration

ConsoleOne® gives you the option to extend the schema of your Novell® eDirectory™ tree to allow the creation of role-based services (RBS) objects. This enables administration applications to expose their functions as RBS module and task objects in your tree. You can then create RBS role objects that define the particular tasks that different users can perform in those administration applications.

NOTE:This approach to delegating administration works only if you have administration applications that use RBS objects. You can also delegate administration using eDirectory rights as explained in Section 4.2, Granting Equivalence.
