Microsoft Windows Services for Netware 5.0 makes it easier for customers to integrate the Windows 2000 operating system into existing NetWare-based environments. The new Windows Services for NetWare Version 5.0 (SFN5) includes components that streamline coexistence with or migration to the Microsoft Windows 2000 platform. SFN5 allows customers to build on existing technology investments by leveraging NetWare resources and expertise. The two-way data synchronization capability between Active Directory and NDS enabled by Services for NetWare Version 5.0 significantly reduces directory management and simplifies adoption of Windows 2000. Synchronization and/or migration of NDS and NetWare bindery information to Active Directory through Microsoft Directory Synchronization Services reduces directory management to a single point of administration. MSDSS also provides password synchronization capabilities, including a Web-based password administration utility that allows network administrators to change passwords in either Active Directory or NDS for fast and effective password administration. Using Windows Services for NetWare Version 5.0, data migration to Windows 2000 will be easily transmitted, maintaining a central point of administration for multiple volume and multiple destinations. Directory structures and security permissions of large data files will be maintained when migrating from any version of NetWare to Windows 2000 through the File Migration Utility (FMU) component of Windows Services for NetWare Version 5.0. The NetWare file and print server emulation software provided in Windows Services for NetWare Version 5.0 reduces the cost and impact of migration by ensuring that Windows 2000 Server will appear like a NetWare file and print server to clients, users and administrators. The resultant consolidated hardware support, simplified field and print server administration and reduced migration cost will provide significant benefits to customers.
