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
GroupWise)
and I'm wondering how others have worked around this issue.

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

Any help is greatly appreciated!
