    We are currently running 2 Netware servers (including Mercury POP3 email ) and authentication in Netware (although there are a couple pof NT 4.0 servers as well). All IPs on the network are routable
    I want to install the SBS, make it a DHCP server and have Exchange deal with mail. Clients are already using Outlook. I also need to keep both Netware servers running and accessible until have finished working the migration
    How does SBS AD work with Netware NDS and what is the best approach to have SBS authenticate and still have access to the netware drives
    Thank

  2. Hi JPD

    I am using Microsoft Client for Netware to connect to my Netware 5 Server
    with no problems. Just be sure you aren't running DHCP on either of them
    when you bring the SBS on line. When you say you are already using Outlook I
    assume that Groupwise is not in the picture at this point.
    I am not familiar with Mercury so I don't know where your mail is stored
    there. If it is POP3'd to Outlook pst files then you simply transfer those
    when you install Outlook 2003 on Computerconnect.

    have SBS authenticate and still have access to the netware drives ?

    Actually, we are running with static (live) IPs and I want to run DHCP and start NAT asap
    We actually do POP3 so I will simply move the pst files
    I suspect SBS should be the root of the tree. How will authentication work. What will hte first logon be: SBS or Netware
    THanks
