db2dir is a utility that works on a database (DB) to generate directory data (DIR), that is the set of
  • accounts,
  • directory entries
  • groups
  • file system spaces

that make up the name space, file space and security of a network domain.

It is also possible to interact with messenging services and generate

  • mailboxes
  • distribution lists

db2dir uses ODBC database ( Access, mySQL, SQL, Oracle, ) to manage data prior to interacting with directories.

db2dir uses the LDAP to interact with directories.
