    KUMAIL Guest


    I need some help please

    we have a microsoft server 2003 domain on our campus A (active directory).

    And at the other campus (Campus B) they are running thier domain on Novell

    end users on campus A are access the internet by linking to campus B.

    What happened is the following:

    New rules has been set enforcing everybody to be part of the LDAP system
    running on Novell on campus B.

    end users in campus A are also part of the Novell (NDS) system on campus B.
    (but with different login names and passwords ofcourse)

    What We want do to is the following:

    We at campus A don't want to change to Novell enviornmet, We want to keep
    our MS windos domain (Active directory) BUT When end users from campus A want
    to access the internet, they have to go through the authentication system
    running on Novell on Campus B.

    we want to (clone or copy or migrate or join...etc) those common users
    residing on Novell on campus B to our Windows 2003 domain on campus A.


    Thank you

    You have two options:

    1/ simpler and cheaper :) - use MSDSS from Services for Netware

    This will allow you to create one way synchronization for users and

    2/ More sophisticated and expensive - You can use ILM 2007 (former MIIS)
    to create provisioning scenario for Your users and synchronize passwords
    as well

    Since you seem to be a NW shop, you'll want to look at the account
    synchronization through DirXML, though they renamed it to something else. I
    think the license is about $10k... in that range.

    If you want to stay on the MS side, look to the NW migration tools as they
    can do account and PW synchs but it requires schema extensions to both NW and
