I'm trying to decide what the the best way to install IDM. I've purchased training, but due to all sorts of mistakes on Micro Focus' end I'm left waiting while a a deadline looms. I need to know which OS is recommended by the community. I have licensing for both SLES and W2K16. We have an established deployment of eDir and I'm looking towards synchronizing that with a DC I recently built. The immediate goal is to change the phone number of every user to the correct number for use in our new Jabber deployment.

Anyway, does it matter? Windows requires more maintenance, SLES is a general pain in the butt for me. Does IDM need an eDir replication? I imagine it does, and if so I might stick with SLES as I've never created a Windows replication before.

Hints, Tips, Etc? Thanks
