Version 4.03

A complete new version of DosNDS has been released.

DN and DNL are commandline utilities for modifying NDS-attributes, trustee assignments on the filesystem and many many more. There are around 90 commands available. The program has also a (script) language. The language can be used for creating new commands and or command scripts.  This new version contains the programs DN (needs Novell Client) and DNL (uses LDAP). DN.exe is more powerfull because in combination with the client it can also modify filesystem attributes/features (trustees, owenship, directory/file attributen).
Also new in this version is option for loading extra modules, at the moment the most important is the GW-module. (Groupwise 2014 and later). This new module is still under development.

The major differences are:

  • Besides the old NDAP version there is LDAP version available.
  • Structural change now extra modules can be loaded
    • NWFile contains all the NSS/NCP functions like addtrustees, etc
    • GW module for GW2014 (under development, added as a sample)

Some commands in DN need the NWFile module, this module will be auto loaded if needed.

see also manual DosNDS

An existing license for DosNDS will work as long as you still have upgrade rights.
