Join Novell Server to Windows Domain

lttech asked
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2008-03-17
I would like to setup a new Netware box to our Windows domain and have only a little bit of knowledge about Novell.  Does anyone know if there is a guide on how to join this computer to the Windows domain?  We are going to use it strictly for the iFolder capabilities.  Possibly even iPrint.  

Would it even be worth putting on our Windows domain?

Please help me out.

Thanks in advance!

You cannot "join" a Netware server to a Windows domain.  They are 2 seperate "domain structures".

You can use the Windows tools to connect the 2 "OS networks" together.

You can connect the server infrastructure with Services for Netware:  http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/sfn/default.mspx

iFolder looks pretty cool, but the basic functionality is in Folder Redirection in Windows, and would be easier to implement (but again won't give you the full functionality that iFolder does).

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
