Packaging and pricing Of Drivers for Linux and Unix#

Pricing#

I am confused so check with your local Novell representative.

Novell's site says:

The NovellĀ® Identity Manager Integration Module for Linux* and UNIX* comes with two provisioning options: Bidirectional and Fan-Out. With these options, you have the full range of capabilities to satisfy your authentication and data provisioning needs.

As we understand it, the NxSetting driver is also included in the Integration Module for Linux* and UNIX*.

Packaging #

The bi-directional driver is packaged with (they are on the same media) the Linux & Unix User Settings Driver along with the bi-directional driver to integrate all aspects of Linux and UNIX account and application administration.

The Fan-out Driver Linux-Unix is on its own media and contains the Fan-Out core driver for all supported platforms and the platform receivers for all supported platforms.

Bi-directional Driver#

The Fan-Out driver provides for delegated logic and control to your system administrators. You can process any Identity Manager data change event with a script on the platform. The Fan-Out driver provides for fan-out to hundreds of systems from a single driver. Authentication redirection provides login support for Universal Password, accessing a central repository for login and password rules. Full bidirectional password synchronization is also supported.

Fan-out Driver Linux-Unix#

The Fan-Out driver has two components: the core driver and Platform Services. The core driver provides event fan-out to target platforms running Platform Services. A single core driver can support many platforms running Platform Services, regardless of platform operating system.
