MDS (Mandriva Directory Server), along with the Mandriva Management Console (MMC), is a powerful system that allows developers, system administrators, and other software vendors to manage users, groups, and their associated policies in both OpenLDAP server and Fedora Directory Server which allows multi-master replication. Its highly ergonomic interface design makes it very easy to use, and delegation of administration enables medium size organization to adopt MDS.
