I am migrating a goup of users from one domain to another.

On their current domain the users use Novell client login on WIndows NT.

I need to move these desktops over to a Windows 2003 domain and the data over to Windows servers.

I have no idea how to go about this - particularly the data migration which is the most important step.

What will I need to do consider to do this - I understand Novell uses IPX rather than TCP/IP how will i connect, etc, etc.

ANy help appreciated.

To get the data onto a windows server you need to copy it using a machine with the novell client installed.
If there is a lot of data then consider using a migration tool from Quest or Bindview that will permission the data on the windows server with corresponding AD groups created and populated with users by querying the novell bindery/NDS.

I have just done this here using Bindview BVMigrate on a SAN hosting 1.5Tb of data controlled by 300 NDS groups for 2000 users. We transitioned on a saturday morning and it took us about 4 hours to complete the SAN migration.

Cheers
