The User Account Management System (UAMS) is an extension of the original User DataBase (UDB) system presented at the USENIX Large Installation System Administration Conference in 1990. This paper describes the extensions of the UDB system from a single administrative entity tool for a distributed set of computers to a multidepartmental system over the period of three years since the first paper. It also covers the added features that have been developed, such as support for Novell networks and POP clients.
