dumb question about SSO type access with GW 2014 client

We just upgraded from GW2012 to GW2014.

We have had the Novell Client on all of our desktops to allow automatic
login to GW using eDir. I was hoping to remove the need for eDir (wish
I didn't have to, but I want to get back down to one directory even if
it is AD) and the Novell Client.

Can we get automatically logged into GroupWise with Windows/AD
authentication, and therefore safely remove the Novell Client and eDir?
If so, what needs done to accomplish that?

Thanks,
Greg

Best answer is in the docs

I suspect there are other SSO vendors as well that basically manage the
ID/passwords intercepted and regurgitated as needed.

If you do hit problems, check which version/build of the client are you
running? I could see that there was an issue with one of the earlier
ones in regards to single SSO that is fixed in later builds.
