I have not.  I'll add it to the list, which now consists of 1 item!

Have you looked at Novell's DirXML product?

We currently run Windows2003 with Active Directory for everything.  Due to
an acquisition we will need to coexist with Novell (6.5 I believe) for a
while.  Could be 2 years but the decision has been made to replace Novell
with Microsoft.  Is there a way/product to keep the 2 directories in sync
with each other so that AD could become the "master/primary"?

For our side to access the acquired side we would need Novell accounts.
Instead of creating eDirectory accounts for everyone we were wondering if
syncing would work.  Anyone ever do anything like this?  Also, is there any
other way to access a netware file server other than the full netware
client?  I would like to avoid adding it to our Citrix Farm.

Thanks in advance.
