Lesson 6. Using Open Directory > What You've Learned

What You've Learned

  • Directory services centralize system and network administration, and simplify a user's experience on the network.

  • Open Directory is Apple's extensible directory-services architecture.

  • Directories store information in a specialized database that is optimized to handle a great many requests for information and to find and retrieve information quickly. Information may be stored in one directory or in several related directories.

  • Open Directory uses the LDAP standard to provide a common language for directory access, enabling you to maintain information in a single location on the network rather than on each computer.

  • The Open Directory pane of Server Admin lets you configure how a Mac OS X server works with directory information.

  • Workgroup Manager enables you to create both local and network user accounts.

  • Directory Access is the primary application for setting up a Mac OS X computer's connections with directories and exists on both Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server.
