Migrating Directory and Data from Novell 6 to Windows 2008

Discussion in 'Server Migration' started by Fernando Branco, Nov 6, 2008.

  1. Hi all!

    We have a customer here in Brazil with the following needs:

    Migrate the Novell 6.0 plataform (NDS, File Server, Print Server) to Windows
    Server 2008 plataform.

    How is this possible only with Microsoft Tools? Maybe migrate all data to
    Windows 2003 and after that upgrade to Windows 2008?

    Thanks in advance!!!

  2. I would suggest that instead of going directly to native 2008 forest and
    domain functional level starting with 2003. This would enable one DC to be
    2003 in which free MS tools would work and you would be able to migrate
    necessary stuff from NDS to AD. If this is not possible then Quest has tools
    for this but not for free.
