X-NDS_NAME is an Extended Flags and one of the EDirectory Extended LDAP Flags.

When defining an object class, specifies the legacy EDirectory object class that automatically maps to this LDAP class.

This was new in NDS eDirectory 8.5 and should be used to make classes available to previous versions of the LDAP server in an eDirectory tree.

When reading object class definitions, returns the legacy eDirectory name for this object class.

When EDirectory was created before LDAP, names had different capitalizations and could have spaces within the name. The X-NDS_NAME allows the ability to obtain the "legacy" name from LDAP.
