Novell Netware 5.x Migration to Windows 2003 Server
  

Hello,
I would like to migrate a Novell 5.2 environment to a Infrastructure MS Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition R2 (or SP1)

I would like to download the Novell server resources (files, docs) and user accounts from the NDS (Novell Directory Services).

The current AD infrastructure is composed of a domain controller Windows 2003 Company in its own domain (child as a dependent architecture) and an Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise Edition.

The server acts as a Novell server and server resources NDS directory.

What are the procedures to follow and what pitfalls to avoid for this kind of migration is done without pain?

Thank you for your help.
Best regards

It can be easily done. Open the migration wizard and proceed as you would to migrate a lower version server. Or download the docs from microsoft which is called Migrating Novell NetWare to Windows Server 2003.

If you can handle re-doing the directory/file access trustee assignments...known as share and NTFS file permissions in Windows, I'd use either RoboCopy, XXCOPY (not xcopy32) (see www.xxcopy.com) or BeyondCompare to get the data off of the NetWare server and onto the Windows 200x server.

Then where you have shared directories on NetWare with multiple people access them, create shares on Windows and assign Share Permissions and follow up with file access permissions (NTFS file permissions). For user home directories, if they are being moved over and assuming that there aren't that many, create individual shares and file permissions for each (others may chime in as to how to get that done easily and perhaps automatically).
