This is an operating system that is able to share information and resources between network computers. Effective on network workstations.
Network operating systems include:
File and Resource Sharing – A basic network requirement, that is, the background of network computers.
Configurability and Usability – Configuration and Usage should be simple paperwork, electronic format, books must be provided for the first time for the user to build and operate the network.
Support – all useful information should always be available.
Type of network operating systems:
• This is the first NOS to support multiple platforms
• This was the first NOS to support multiple topologies and routines between different topologies
• New Netware Servers typically outperform other network servers as they have a design network operating system
The Novel NOS features are as follows:
• New Library Services (NOS)
is a competitor of Windows NT. X.500 is used to prevent repetitive objects from being created. Each object has a distinguished name (DN). Because NDS directory services are rendered in a graphically arranged order, objects such as users, printers, workstations, and application servers share an organizational structure to the administrator user. You can log on as a system administrator from any workstation. This allows you to manage the entire directory tree. You can add and remove user services and other network resources. Users only have to log in once to have access to all network resources.
• Security Services
All passwords are from the Netware server to the client workstation in encrypted format, even if the administrator can not view the user's password on the server. Administrators can remove and add user permissions, but only users can recognize their passwords, even if users access the physical Netware server, there is no greater access to the resources that are built into their network at their workstation because the user Netware's security in the lowest Netware system. All attempts to access information or resources on the network go through the network security system.
• Database Services
Central repository for server information, the most important database management system is as follows:
Netware C – Database Registry System Index with a database key for easy deployment to the vertical application.
Netware SQL is the standard used to access records stored in a relational database system.
Oracle DBMS – this SQL-based system primarily uses a business-critical application across different business lines.
• Messaging Services
Enter a messaging service called Netware Messaging Service. This facilitates the message, transferring between many front applications. This application can share data on LANs and Novel.
• Printing Services
Allows you to share up to 16 printers across the network through the print server, so that you can print effectively. Printers must not be connected to the actual print server so they can be operated.
• Netware Loadable Machine (NLM)
Netware Loadable Modules are provided by Novel NetWare Operation. This provides the resources needed to support the network services hierarchy used by the server. have the same access to Netware's security features to ensure they are the same for management and monitoring.
Advantages of Novel NetWare
There is print and file server software in business, as well as sharing files and printers, creating an important and useful network. The best LAN NOS directory service.
As an application server, failures in Windows NT beat this case. Poor in the status and handling of print data / information network. It is built on network management tools that are ineffective.
