Appling Rights form Novell 6.5 to Windows Server 2003

Posted on 2008-11-17
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have just move to active Directory and currently have Novell 6.5 still running.
Many of my users have created directories that I will have to copy over to the Windows network some of these directories have been created with right in Novell. As of now, I have no way to see who has rights to witch directory without going into each indusial property for the directory. Do you know if there is a way to print out all the trusty rights out of Novell or is there a utility that can migrate the rights out of Novell in to Windows?

    We had an NLM running on our Novell servers to dump the trustee list to a file. We built a VB application to translate this dump to how we wanted to set NTFS permissions to. We only allowed Change and Read as our NTFS rights. Users do not get Full Control and blocking of inherited rights was not allowed. A restructuring of the directories was done to accommodate this.  We also enabled ABE so we can get the hidden folder based on access right.

    I see if I can find what the NLM was. I think it may have been Trustee Back or Trustee Dump. It's been awhile.
