In our working enviroment we have a Netware 5 server with only 2 users.
Their E-mail is accessed via Groupwise and will require me to move them over to Exchange.
The objective is to join the Netware 5 server to our NT Domain and setup prehaps a one way trust so they can access their E-mail from Exchange.
Can somebody give me an idea how to set this up.
I have a vague idea but any help would be appreciated.

Using Novell Account Manager (http://www.novell.com/products/edirectory/accountmanagement/) you can make your NT Domain appear as part of your NDS tree and grant the users access in your NT Domain. You may even find it easier to primarily administrate ALL your users in NDS using Account Management. Once you try an actual Directory Service, you'll wonder why you ever used Domains.

I feel sorry for the users moving from GroupWise to virus-city (aka Exchange). You'll also, according to Gartner, triple your per-mailbox administration costs with that move. Keep that bottle of Motrin handy.
