Netware Directory Services

(networking)
(NDS) Novell, Inc.'s directory services for Netware, Windows NT, and Unix. The NDS directory represents each network resource (user, hardware, or application) as an object of a certain class, where each class has certain properties. For example, User and Print Server are object classes and a user has over 80 properties such as name, login, password, department, and title.

The directory is hierarchical, divided into branches by rules of containment. A given object can only belong to a given container (or branch). The rules governing classes, properties and, rules of containment are known as the schema.
