The NetWare 4.1 database of network information. It defines every object on the network, such as users, groups, printers, print queues, servers, and volumes. All NetWare 4.1 servers on a network share a single NDS database. This way, you only have to create a user or other object once on the network; each server will recognize that same object. You can then allow that user to access different servers simply by granting him or her the appropriate rights to the necessary volumes on each server. The user doesn't have to log in to each server separately.
