Do you expect Novell to be supported by current software products?
LOL ... only if they make such a claim, though I realize holding them to it becomes the challenge
The sad thing is we are moving to AD but we aren't there yet so I'm stuck between a rock and hard place. File services are not going to be migrated quickly as we are a Provincial Goverment support shop for all Departments with 10,000 plus users so it's going to take time. While I stand behind Novell for it's stability, it has always been a challenge for Vendor support but it is getting worse and worse with all the Novell changes. Internally we have the shifting OS happening at the same time we are working towards a shift in Directory Services but they aren't aligning.
I have opened a support ticket on this as well as I realize Novell always puts us in the minority and thus less chance others discover the same things we run across.
For now, you could just drop EEPC SSO part and implement it later on, with MS only, if you insist on having it.
Might be forced too but not having passwords synched will be a nightmare when they are forced to change passwords in Novell(Windows) and Endpoint isn't changed to match.
