As a network administrator, you have to juggle many different tasks. Novell eDirectory 8.8 can simplify one of your most demanding responsibilities: routine network management. You can learn the basics of eDirectory management by attending Fundamentals of Novell eDirectory 8.8 (Course 3078). During this course, you will learn how to perform directory-related administrative tasks using Novell eDirectory 8.8 on a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 platform. The course focuses on design principles essential to planning an optimized eDirectory tree and the critical infrastructure processes that enable eDirectory to reliably maintain and securely replicate directory data.

This course is intended for network administrators and other network management professionals who have little or no experience using Novell eDirectory but who are planning to implement eDirectory on a mixed or homogeneous platform network. This can apply to a student deploying eDirectory in any network environment on any of the supported platforms (Windows, NetWare, Linux, Unix, Solaris, AIX, etc) for any reason or students with significant Linux training and/or experience who need to implement Novell services in their Linux environment. All of Novell's services (such as GroupWise, ZEN, IDM, iFolder, iPrint, etc) are directory-enabled, so a fundamental understanding of eDirectory is prerequisite to deploying any of those services.
