What is Directory Service Manager for NetWare (DSMN)?

Directory Service Manager for NetWare, also known as DSMN, is an add-on utility for Microsoft Windows NT Server. Directory Service Manager for NetWare (DSMN) enables Windows NT domain controllers to manage account information on NetWare 2.x , 3.x , and 4.x servers. It does this by copying NetWare account information to the primary domain controller (PDC) and then propagating changes back to the bindery on the NetWare servers.

DSMN also synchronizes accounts across all NetWare servers, allowing users to access any NetWare server using a single logon username. DSMN does not come with Windows NT but can be ordered separately from your Microsoft value-added reseller (VAR).

DSMN and NetWare

DSMN supports NetWare 4.x servers only when they are running in bindery emulation mode, not in Novell Directory Services (NDS) mode.
