NMAS server versioning seems to have changed with later eDirectory versions.  How can someone determine what versions and functionalities are installed?


Before eDirectory 8.8 SP8 (aka 8.8.8), the NMAS version delivered and installed with eDirectory was 3.x.x (i.e. novell-nmas-<datecode>.<architecture>.rpm). 

With the release of eDirectory 8.8 SP8, the version nomenclature changed to:

With the release of eDirectory 9.0, the version nomenclature was modified to:

Here is a listing of eDirectory versions and NMAS versions:

 RPM Version (for x86_64)
 8.8 SP7 (GA)
 8.8 SP8 (GA)
 9.0 (GA)

Note: later versions of NMAS will contain the features/functionality of the previous version(s).  For example, version 8.8.8 will contain the functionality of version 3.3.4.
