The term "directory manager" is a common name used to refer to a root DN user in some implementations of Directory Servers. It is so named because the default root user typically uses a bind DN of "cn=Directory Manager".

Unlike many other types of directory servers, OpenDS allows multiple root DNs to be defined, although the default root DN is still "cn=Directory Manager".
