We have a Netware 5.1 server with the master replica and a 2003 server
with Groupwise (eDir 8.7.3). People login in to Netware for file
shares/drive mappings.

We are installing the Messenger on the 2003 server to run with our
Groupwise system (200 concurrent users at peak). We likely will have
50-60 messenger clients at peak.

With the install:
1. schema update can happen from the 2003 server if NDS is sync-ing, right?

2. Does "direct access" have a disadvantage over LDAP? We do not have
LDAP configured at this time.

Appreciate any suggestions -
