As the AD 2003 and Exchange 2003/2007 Administrator I am in charge of our new ILM server that we are building. However I have learned that our Programmers recently installed a BizTalk server. If anyone can help me learn the specific differences it would be greatly appreciated. Here's our needs:
Automate the creation, modification and deletion of AD accounts, Mailboxes, group membership, AD attributes, Home Directory folders (creation and permission modification) based on data that is in our Registrar's database (MS SQL 2000 and 2005). This also applies to changing SQL code based on other things changing (which would affect our programs which have SQL on the backend).
Account username and password synchronization - Single sign-on so that passwords for various apps are changed if you change it in another location.
Integrate custom scripts (VBS, Powershell, VB.NET, C++) if we want to add these.
I learned that they understand Biztalk to be able to do all this and yet while I'm reading about ILM i see that they're touting it as the product to use for this as well.
If anyone could help explain the differences between the two products, give advice about which to use, and point towards a resource that helps explain this I would greatly appreciate it.
