Novell Inc duly unfurled version 2.0 of its Novell Directory Services for Sun’s Solaris operating system, Novell’s first Unix port of the 2.0 code. With a NetWare server somewhere on the network, client systems will be able to log in to Solaris, NT and NetWare servers using a single password, Novell says. Networks, applications and security can be managed from a single point. NDS for Solaris is $700 – $26 per client user license. The big question now is whether Sun will endorse NDS for Solaris or plump for Netscape Communications Corp’s directory services following its deal with America Online and Netscape. Novell claims the deal is still up in the air. Hewlett-Packard Co is already shipping NDS for HP-UX and Caldera offers NDS on Linux. IBM’s OS/390 port is due at the end of this month. An AIX version is underway. Novell recently licensed Sun’s Jini technology. The expectation is that it will enable NDS to use Jini services and networks.
