Re: Alternative to OpenLDAP
Not to be rude, but your comparison doesn't state much about NDS -
version release of eDirectory you examined....
Did you truly evaluate the Novell offerings, or did you just fill in the
Also not to be rude, but Quanah's evaluation seemed more of a
justification than the former. The point was, IMHO, that if "the others
didn't have the necessary, then they were rejected".
A pity, since Novell's (originally, years ago, NDS and many months/years
now) eDirectory has always been what taught me the x500 rules and is my
standard pattern for the utimate.
But NetWare's needs for a corporation-wide database and Stanford's needs
for an authorisation database are worlds apart. eDirectory would be
overkill to the nth degree and performance loss likewise. Not to speak
of being able to hire in one of the the chief architects to solve
problems and help plan for the future. For me, that's the chief
difference between eDirectory and Openldap.
Who still has a permanent place in his heart for Novell - in spite of
Ray Noorda's already proved and advanced senility (read "Caldera").
