NetWare Directory Services

   Abbreviated NDS. In Novell NetWare, a global naming service that maintains information on, and provides access to, every resource on the network, including users, groups, printers, volumes, and servers.
   NDS manages all network resources as objects in the NetWare Directory Database (NDD), independent of their actual physical location, and presents them in a hierarchical tree structure. NDS is global to the network, and information is replicated so that a local failure cannot bring down the whole system.
   NDD replaces the bindery, the system database for earlier releases of NetWare. The bindery managed the operation of a single NetWare server; NDS supports the whole network, including multiserver networks. Bindery emulation provides compatibility with previous versions of NetWare.
   NDS is based on the 1988 CCITT X.500 standard.
