Access 2 NDS's at the same time

By malcorn ·
I just put a new server with Netware 5.0 online with another server with netware 4.10.

How can I access both of the NDS's on these servers at the same time.

I am running Win NT on my DNS, and PDC, but my projects are handled with Netware.

Do you have any suggestions,

Access 2 NDS's at the same time

You have two options:
1) Use Novell Client32 software. It allows for access to several NDS trees at the same time. Just go to Network Neighbourhood and double click a tree, and it will ask you to authenticate.

2) Merge the trees...Netware 4.10and 5.0 can co-exist, provided they all have the latest NDS patches applied. They can be part of the same tree.

As Jeff mentioned, install Novell's client32 on your workstation and then log into one of the NDS trees as you normally do. If you then use network neighborhood to locate and attach to a server on the other NDS tree, you will be asked to authenticate with a userid and context for the second tree. The only problem you may have is with an NDS aware application which can only deal with one NDS tree at a time. You can set the default NDS tree by right mouse clicking on the tree in the network neighborhood and selecting Set Default Tree from the pop-up menu. Restart the application and it should then gather data from the new default tree.

If the two server are in different tree the go to Netware Administrator and place "Tree 'the name of the tree' \ 'login id' and 'context'

I assume you want to automaticly open your pc,
and be loggned on to 2 different nds trees.
If so, I can suggest you something dirty,
but I know nothing better.
On the second nds tree create your user,
with empty password.
create a batch file"login .user.cn.cn.secondtree"
put it in the "startup" folder.
This will autologin u to the second tree automaticly,
as u login to your ntws.
again, it is dirty, but I have nothing better.

Good Luck.
