Essential Guide to an NDS-to-Active Directory Migration
With the release of Windows Server 2008 and the latest iteration of Active Directory, many enterprise IT departments have decided that Active Directory is a sufficiently mature and proven technology and that the time has come to move from their current networking environment. Included in this group is a fairly significant contingent with extensive directory experience - that is, Novell NetWare, Novell Directory Services (NDS), and eDirectory users. Well aware of Novell, Microsoft has designed tools specifically to help move NDS/eDirectory users to Active Directory. One will find the tools - Microsoft Directory Synchronization Services (MSDSS) and File Migration Utility (FMU) - in Microsoft Windows Services for NetWare 5.x.
