Need to set up one way or two way synchronization between Novell Directory Services (NDS) and Microsoft Server 2003 Active Directory (see body)

Need to set up one way or two way synchronization between Novell Directory Services (NDS) and Microsoft Server 2003 Active Directory.

We have just migrated all of the users from Novell Netware v. 6.5 to Microsoft Server 2003 Active Directory.

Two way synchronization between NDS and Microsoft Active Directory will make it so that if there is a change made to a user's group memberships or to a user's attributes (such as phone number or address) these changes will be automatically replicated from Novell Directory Services to Microsoft Active Directory or vice versa.

One way synchronization would make it so that, for example, if a change is made to a user's group memberships or attributes (such as phone number or address) in Novell Netware this change would be automatically synchronized to Microsoft Active Directory.

How can either two way or one way synchronization between Novell Directory Services (NDS) and Microsoft Server 2003 Active Directory be achieved?

MIIS includes an eDirectory Management Agent that can connect and sync users/groups from eDirectory 8.6 and 8.7.3. In addition, MIIS includes a password synchronization capability that allows it to synchronize password changes made in AD over to eDirectory to facilitate reduced sign-on.

You can also use Microsoft Directory Synchronization services (MSDSS)

Or Novell's Identity Manager, which will also sync passwords

Having used both the MS and Novell identity management solutions, I'd choose the latter in a heartbeat; the MS products are a poor choice. If you have NW65 you will already have the cut down version of Identity Manager which comes with an AD driver which will do everything you require.

Using the graphical tools you can easily edit the filters to decide which attributes sync in which directions, etc...  As always, have a read up on it at http://novell.com/documentation
