Changing client from bindery to NDS

I am preparing to put a fresh 5.1 server & NDS tree into service in a
network with an existing NW3.1 server. I am then going to change
workstations to login to the 5.1 server which will then ATTACH to the old
3.1 server. Is there an easy way to change existing Novell Clients (latest
version) connecting to the 3.1 server (XP & W98) from bindery to NDS w/out
reinstall the client? Thanks!

Sure, you can go into Novell Client Properties | Location Profiles and change
the type of authentication there.

What about changing IPX to IP protocol?
Can this be done without reinstalling client?

Novell Client Properties | Protocol Preferences. Keep in mind,
the client should've be installed with IP & IPX support for this
to work. If you selected IPX Only during the install, you need
to reinstall the client.

That's what I was looking for! I had already setup clients for IP & IPX
given the mixed servers that were planned, so all I have to do is make this
change & enter the new NDS credentials Thanks!

Changing client from bindery to NDS

How about SET REPLY TO GET NEAREST SERVER = OFF on the 3.1x server, and
SET BINDERY CONTEXT =; on the 5.1 server? In theory that would prevent WSs
from atttaching to the 3.11 server, and only allow NDS logins on the NW5
server.

Good luck,
Donovan

Not if you configured the client for Bindery Connection only.
