Assumming the latest version of Newtare is being used and also Windows Server 2003, what needs to be installed so that when a user logs on they are authenticated in both eneviroments.  Also what do you need to install to synchronise the accounts; for example when passwords are changed

You would use DIRXML to sync Netware with AD

Actually you would use Identity Manager to sync eDirectory with AD. Keep up old bean :)

As long as the user names and passwords are the same, the user need only supply credentials once, and they shuld be able to authenticate to both eDir and AD at the same time.  As alextoft said, Identity Manager (IDM) is the tool to keep the two directories in sync.  However, if you have a pretty static user envrironment (not a lot of adds / deletes), setting up IDM may not be worth the trouble.  I don't remember for sure if IDM comes bundled with OES Netware or not.

Let me be a bit more specific. The client is in the education arena and has a large user base. They are running Novell 6.5 SP8 and Windows Server 2003.
The issue I beleive is that at present they logon to netware, then windows and then Outlook.  I am not sure if the logons are the same for each enviroment, I beleive not.
What do they need to do, firslty to get the users ids and passwords the same in each directory and then enable that one logon to authenicate them on all systems.  Finally when they change the password it is reflected in both enviroemnts.

Manythanks for your time

Given all that, you need to implement Identity Manager (IDM).  IDM may *not* address the Outlook login, depending on how OutLook is getting mail (POP3, IMAP, native Exchange, etc)

Thank you for the link.
Something else I should have mentioned is that it looks as if sooner rather than later they will move completly to AD.  Does this change anything. They need a cost effective solution that may only be required for a short while.
