bindery

(networking)
A Novell Netware database that contains definitions for entities such as users, groups, and workgroups. The bindery allows the network supervisor to design an organised and secure operating environment based on the individual requirements of each of these entities.

The bindery has three components: objects, properties, and property data sets. Objects represent any physical or logical entity, including users, user groups, file servers. Properties are characteristics of each object (e.g. passwords, account restrictions, internetwork addresses). Property data sets are the values assigned to an entity's bindery properties.

bindery

A NetWare file used for security and accounting in the early NetWare 2.x and 3.x versions. The bindery pertained only to the server it resided in and contained the names and passwords of users authorized to log in to that server. It also held information about other services provided by the server to the client (print, modem, gateway, etc.).

Starting with NetWare 4, the bindery turned into NDS (Novell Directory Services), but NDS (later renamed eDirectory) is globally oriented, manages multiple servers and provides a naming service, which the bindery did not. Bindery emulation software enabled NetWare 2.x and 3.x clients to access services on NetWare 4.x servers. See eDirectory.
