(Page 1 of 6) Name devolution

A process by which a DNS resolver appends one or more domain names to an unqualified domain name, making it a fully qualified domain name, and then submits the fully qualified domain name to a DNS server.

Namespace

A set of unique names for resources or items used in a shared computing environment. The names in a namespace can be resolved to the objects they represent. For Microsoft Management Console (MMC), the namespace is represented by the console tree, which displays all of the snap-ins and resources that are accessible to a console. For Domain Name System (DNS), namespace is the vertical or hierarchical structure of the domain name tree. For example, each domain label, such as “host1” or “example,” used in a fully qualified domain name, such as “host1.example.microsoft.com,” indicates a branch in the domain namespace tree. For Active Directory, namespace corresponds to the DNS namespace in structure, but resolves Active Directory object names.

Naming service

A service, such as that provided by WINS or DNS, that allows friendly names to be resolved to an address or other specially defined resource data that is used to locate network resources of various types and purposes.

Narrator

A synthesized text-to-speech utility for users who have low vision. Narrator reads aloud most of what the screen displays.

NAS

Network Attached Storage. Storage devices, typically in external enclosures, which connect to the network as a node. Typically, the NAS receives an IP number and may offer security authentication. Can be configured in various RAID configurations. Refer to RAID, SAN

NAT (Network Address Translation)

A method of connecting multiple computers to the Internet (or any other IP network) using one IP address.

Native file

A specific format for storing data in its native format. I.E. .DOC for Microsoft Word, or .XLS for Microsoft Excel.
