My network currently has two servers running Netware 6.5 sp5. I will soon
have to add an AD 2003 domain to the network in order to support MS Exchange
2007. Users will be using Outlook to handle their e-mail, and I don't want
them to have to log into AD every time they want to check their mail.

With the Xmas break coming up, this is a good time to carry out an ungrade
to my Novell servers and add the AD and Exchange servers to the network.

From what I've read so far, upgrading my existing Netware servers to sp7
shouldn't be too much of an issue. I'll follow the instructions on the Wiki,
including post install patches, and that should sort out the Netware server
side of things.

My questions are with regards the AD side of things. I understand that,
having upgraded to sp7, I should then install the nSure IDM Starter Kit on
one of my Netware servers. Or must it be installed on all Netware servers?

Then, I set up my Windows 2003 Server box.

After this point, I require assistance.

Is there a how-to or such which takes an admin through the process of
creating a new AD on a Windows 2003 server, naming it properly to work with
an existing Netware eDir environment, then installing IDM on the Windows box
and having it populate AD with user names from eDir?

Once I have this environment all up and runnning, what client software do I
run on the Workstations? Do I run solely the Netware Client for w2k_XP (or
Vista), or must I have the "Client for Microsoft Networks" installed on the
workstations as well?

I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
