Not for sure if this is the right area to be asking this but here goes.  I am looking for a way to allow a single sign-on to Windows 2003 domain and have it communicate with a Novell Groupwise server for e-mail and a Sun Solaris box for custom application.  This way the user only needs to sign on once and be able to access all of these applications without having to go through numerous password boxes.  I have been looking at LDAP and other services.  Does anyone have any experience with implementing this at their organization.  Thanks for any answers you can provide.

Ouch, this isn't gonna be easy. So, a few questions to get started.

1. What version of Novell and are you running NDS?

2. Are you running NIS?

3. Have looked in to Services for Netware and Services for Unix yet? These will allow your AD domain to communicate with NIS and NDS, create some trust relationships, share out directories, and pass login info. That SHOULD work, but it really depends on your setup. Plus, they are both free. Anyway, it is a good place to start in my opinion:
