Hi, Folks,
i've got a question concerning different forests, on the one hand w2k/ads on the other hand NDS.
How can I get a conncection between a W2k´-forest and a different W2k-forest and a NDS ?
Do you know any third part tools for example? What about the Services for Novell ?

First off all, you don't have a connection between different forest's, you have a connection between one Active Directory environment and one Netware Directory Service environment.
If you want that your W2K users to be able to access NDS resources, you will have to create a user account in NDS named "ndsw2k", and give access rights to this "NDSW2K" user to the resources which he need to access in your Novell NDS from the w2k. Load "Gateway for NetWare" service in in one off your w2k servers which will publish the netware share objects to your w2k users. Configure this gateway service to use the novell credentials for the "ndsw2k" user which you setup previously in novell. The access the alowed resources from novell nds, and create a share for every novell resource on the w2k server for your w2k users.

Hope this will help, Chris.

The problem cannot be solved by this, because I need something like DSMN, means, a tool not only to connect to a
Netware Forest, but a tool to synchronize all accounts, means, w2k and netware accounts
