Calendar daemons/ services

Six UNIX daemons or multithreaded Windows services:


A cluster is a node network in which one node is designated the "master node".


A user who has been given the right to modify the calendar of another user or resource.

directory server

A Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) application designed to manage descriptive, attribute-based information about people and resources within an organization.

local node

A calendar server node located on the host you are presently signed on to.

local resource

A resource whose calendar is maintained on the node you are presently signed on to.

local user

A user whose calendar is maintained on the node you are presently signed on to.

master node

A specially designated node in a cluster that finds user accounts on other nodes. The master node coordinates network management, and provides support for finding user accounts on installations spanning multiple nodes and hosts. When master node is in use, Oracle Calendar clients will connect to the master node upon the first login. The Oracle Calendar server will then resolve the node on which the requesting user resides. The Oracle Calendar client will then cache the appropriate node for that user account locally, and connect directly to the appropriate node upon the subsequent login. .


A calendar database containing all user and resource information and calendars.

node alias

A descriptive title that can be used in addition to the Node-ID to differentiate between multiple nodes.


A unique identification number assigned when a node is created. Node-IDs must be unique across the node network.

node network

A series of two or more connected nodes.

Object class

Defines an entry type in an LDAP directory by defining which attributes are contained in the entry.

Oracle Calendar administrator

Oracle Internet Directory

A database application that stores information about users, and makes this information available to various other services, such as e-mail or calendar applications.

Relative DN

A location in the LDAP directory relative to the calendar server base DN in which a domain's users and event calendars are stored.

remote node

A calendar server node that is part of a node network but is not located on the node you are signed in to.

remote resource

A resource whose calendar is maintained on another node.

remote user

A user whose calendar is maintained on another node.


An inanimate object, such as a conference room or a piece of equipment, that has its own calendar. When creating an event in their calendar, users can invite resources in the same way that they invite other users. Resources are managed by users who act as designates. Resources can also be used to create a calendar for tracking related enterprise-wide information, such as company holidays or employees' travel schedules.

resource Relative DN

A location in the LDAP directory relative to the calendar server base DN in which all calendar server resources are stored.

schema definition

Describes the types of information that can be stored as entries in the LDAP directory.
