We just installed GroupWise 6.5 with Messenger and use GroupWise in an

Active Directory environment without the Novell Client. Consequently,

our users only know their GroupWise passwords and not their
NDS/eDirectory passwords. I know others are in the same boat on the design issue of Messenger authenticating to NDS (rather than
and I'm wondering how others have worked around this issue.

Can NDS / GroupWise passwords be automatically synchronized at the
level? Short of changing 600+ unknown NDS passwords, how might we
use Messenger in our environment?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
