What means Number of Objects in nssmu?

In nssmu there are:
The number of objects in the volume
The number of files in the volume
I thought that the number of objects is the number of files + the number of folders. But the same Volume copied with miggui from netware to oes shows at oes much more object as on netware. In this case:

Netware
Number of Objects: 4739926
Number of Files: 3511837

OES
Number of Objects: 4787714
Number of Files: 3495126

The Volumes are not 100% identical becaus of copy-problems. I trust the number of files but don't understand 50.000 more objects than under netware.

What are these Objects?

Does the two servers hold the same (DS) partitions?

I'm not sure about the term partition. It is a eDirectory with a simple flat tree. Only one organisation with all in. Both servers are members of the eDirectory and have a local replica.

Re: What means Number of Objects in nssmu?

Imagine a jigsaw puzzle, you can "divide" an eDir tree into sections or pieces (partitions) and place them on different servers. So the question is, do you know if your tree was ever "divided" in such a manner?

The internal structure of NSS treat various things as '"objects," which includes trustee assignments and other (housekeeping) things. And files and folders are objects but not all objects are necessary files and folders - clear as mud? 😉

Re: What means Number of Objects in nssmu?

Its not devided. There are about 10 Server with a repica from the eDir but all are equal. All have the whole eDir. So I understand that an Object could be an file or folder and could be some meta-data-thing like trustees. But the Trustees should be the same and the attributes should be the same and so on. So why there are 50.000 more objects on OES11 then on Netware?
