Hi I have a Novell Netware 6.5 sp5 network ( users login to this for file services, and authentication)
There is a SUSE OES server being used as the GroupWise 8 server
I have just in the past year deployed a Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 Domain as well
I am having hard time with creating user accounts, on NDS, ADS....

is there some "easy" way of doing this
I have heard of MSDSS...?
basically what we want to do is, make it easy for creating user accounts, and also when logging onto a PC, something like a single sign on where as now, if 1 user logs into NDS and the domain that is fine.  but if userB comes along to the same desktop, and wants to login, he has to change the windows login ID to his, and users are just not having a good time with this.

You can use MSDSS to synchronize accounts between eDirectory and Active Directory.:

Better yet is Novell's Identity Manager, which will synch passwords as well.

A quick fix for your problem may be to change the login GUI from Novell to Microsoft.
Change the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
GinaDLL=MSGINA.DLL

That way your users will login to Active Directory first, then are logged on with the same credentials to eDirectory (provided that the tree / context information is correct)
