8.7.x#

  • /etc/nds.conf - Default location

Edirectory Instance Management

NOTE#

Some of the parameters in the nds.conf file are also stored as attributes within eDirectory. When the eDirectory attribute is modified, then the nds.conf file is updated. When the various services for eDirectory start, they read the parameters in the nds.conf file to use when starting their respective services and they set the respective attributes in eDirectory.

DESCRIPTION#

The nds.conf file contains a list of configuration parameters for configuring Novell eDirectory. This file is read by the eDirectory daemon, ndsd, when it is started. The configuration file is stored in the UTF-8 format.

The "http" prefixed entries are used by the HTTP Server Object.

ndsconfig Parameters#

These are the ndsconfig Parameters we know about.

Each parameter entry would be a single line within the Nds.conf file, if set.
