The Adabas Directory Server provides central management of directory services. It runs as either a Windows service or a UNIX daemon. All directory information required to accomplish communication between clients and servers is obtained from the Directory Server. Only Directory Server address information, essentially the host and port of the Directory Server, is required for clients and servers to use the Directory Server.
This document describes the new and changed features of the 5.8 version of the Adabas Directory Server.
This release contains no significant new functionality or enhancements, only bug fixes from previous versions.
Fixes to Adabas Directory Server 5.8 are delivered using the Software AG Update Manager. Please see Installing and Uninstalling Adabas Directory Server for further details.
As of the October, 2018 Software AG products release, the product Entire Net-Work Administration is no longer available. It will be replaced by a new administration product in the next release cycle. Adabas Directory Server Version 5.8 can be managed using the previous release of Entire Net-Work Administration (Version 1.4 SP1, released October 2017) with the most current fixes applied.
