FYI - Sybase is not the backend for NDS or eDirectory. Novell uses
'FLAIM' (FLexible and Adaptable Information Manager) as the backend
database. FLAIM was originally used (if memory serves) by BYU in Provo
for it's Geneology database, and was adpated by Wordperfect for use with
Wordperfect Groupwise. Novell bought WP (thus acquiring Groupwise and
FLAIM), and has since invested a significant amount of development
effort into it. FLAIM is the backend DB running eDirectory and
Groupwise now. NDS (v7 and below of the Novell Directory product) used
an in-house database called 'RECMAN'.
Here's some more info if you want:
I think it's Novell's ZEN that uses Sybase. Didn't know the old word
perfect stuff was running eDirectory as well as Groupwise.
