moving file storage to windows

We have several mapped drives for our users that are mapped to your
netware file server (we have netware network, no AD). I have a new server
box with windows 2003 that has a good chunk of storage (1.2tb). I would
like to move all the shared files over to this and still retain novell
rights and be able to administer it as though it was still a novell share
(so that I don't have to create all user accounts on the winbox, etc).

I'm not sure what to use for this and am looking for some direction.

Thank you,
joe

The answer to "what to use" would be "the Netware installation media".
That may have other consequences, depending on what you're using this
Windows 2003 server for, however.

You just want him to mess up the Win3K box, don't you? <G>

Re: moving file storage to windows

Windows boxes don't understand NetWare file system rights and you need to
use Windows tools to manage them .. which really falls into a NON-NetWare
arena ...

Re: moving file storage to windows

Here's a thought (or after-thought): you can set up NFS on Windows to
export the chunk of free disk space and have that mounted by the NetWare
server so it will appear as NetWare volume space to your users. However,
not all NetWare file system rights can be used.

Has the mixed NW/Windows initiator issue been resolved?
