LDAP, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, is an Internet protocol that email and other programs use to look up information from a server.
Edraw Network Diagram enables network and system administrators to create, plan, and maintain their networks by providing a clear and detailed graphic representation of their Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Directory network structure. It had defined some common used LDAP, Active Directory, Active Directory Objects, Exchange symbols. Just drag and drop pre-drawn shapes and double click and set the data.
Managing a computer network today is no small task. In addition to controlling access to printers and files over the network, most administrators must also manage security and access, optimize traffic flow across Local Area Networks (LANs) and Wide Area Networks (WANs), coordinate repair and maintenance of network equipment, and oversee data backup, storage, and recovery.
LDAP Directory Services applications, such as iPlanet's Directory Server, provide a central location for managing network assets, such as computers, users, groups, and so on. Those assets are organized into a hierarchical tree structure, which is typically viewed in a small editing window.
Although this view of the directory can be simple to use, it does not provide a clear high-level diagram of the directory structure and°™most importantly°™cannot be printed.
The Edraw LDAP Directory Services solution provides administrators with clear, detailed representations of current and proposed directory structures, which can be viewed, printed, and presented to management for planning new networks, coordinating migrations, and for documenting existing networks. Figure 1 shows a typical directory service application interface.
The strength of Edraw lies in its ease-of-use. You don't need to be a graphic artist or have years of experience with complex graphic software packages to create directory services diagrams. You simply drag and drop from a stencil of shapes onto the drawing page.
