Cheers ... yep, I agree, iManager is horrible. I use it ONLY when
there's no other tool to do the same job..and so far that's pretty much
only the administration/creation of NDPS print queues.

I've done my fair share of complaining to Novell in recent years about
the push to iManager - and I told our account manager that obviously the
developers don't actually use and manage a large tree on a daily basis,
because if they did, then they would realise that any web based
management tool is a bad idea and they'd stop pushing everything over to
it. The answer they give of course is they need to be "multi
platform".... I'd ask the question, how many people administer a
Novell/Netware/eDir environment and NOT use Windows workstations to do
so???? I can't imagine many.

Oh well - enough *****ing :) I still use NWadmin as my main tool and
only use Console One when I need to adjust groupwise stuff. My tree has
some 30,000 objects and I've not had a problem yet.. nwadmin is still the
fastest way of skipping around objects and making quick changes. My
helpdesk uses ConsoleOne soley.. They're going to hate me when I force
them to use iManager (hope that day never comes).
