Integration of Windows 2008 R2-Server into eDirectory 8.7.3

Hi,

the Windows-Server will provide terminal-server-services for
the network (Netware with eDir 8.7.3). Do I have to buy a
special eDir-License for this Windows-Server or can I just
download eDir for Windows and install into the existing
tree?

Sincerely

Karl

AFAIR there are no SERVER Licenses. Licensing is user-based. So you are
allowed to install as much instances of eDir as you need, no matter
which is the underlying OS.

Re: Integration of Windows 2008 R2-Server into eDirectory 8.7.3


So I will just download the product eDir for Windows 8.7.3 and install
it on the Windows-Server. Sounds great. Does 8.7.3 run on Windows Server
2008R2?

Re: Integration of Windows 2008 R2-Server into eDirectory 8.7.3


I'm not sure about edir 8.7.3 on 2008R2. Why not use eDir 8.8.n? AFAIR
they coexist without problems, but please check out, I'm not sure in the
details.

How are these items related? Terminal server doesn't use eDirectory.

Re: Integration of Windows 2008 R2-Server into eDirectory 8.7.3


So users get access to the Windows-Server with eDir-authentification,
but not to the Terminal-Server-Services on this Windows-Server. Great.

So what would be the path for us to keep things simple for the users,
speak authentificate to the Novell-Ressources (Servers, Groupwise,
Bordermanager) via eDir and have access to those needed
Terminal-Services?

Sincerely

Karl

Not sure, but if I'm right, you want your TS or CITRIX Users to
authenticate against eDir and use Novell-Ressources as e.g. mappings
inside the terminal sessions?

Re: Integration of Windows 2008 R2-Server into eDirectory 8.7.3


Yes, that is what we need.

Beside others things we are talking about a handfull applications,
which at time run on the users workstations itself. This cannot be
continued (performance, compatibility etc), so the applications will be
moved to the Terminal-Server. These applications generate specific
pdf-files. The users need those files being saved to a user-specific
mapping (inside the home-directory) on a Netware-Server, from where the
files can be grabbed by a different application (which still runs on the
workstations).

Sincerely

Karl

In short terms: Install the Novell-Client on the Terminal-Server, let
the users login to the novell-server from inside the terminal-session.
There are some configurations to do, but that's not a hard to figure out.

Re: Integration of Windows 2008 R2-Server into eDirectory 8.7.3


From the actual infrastructure here is no network-access without
eDir-authentification. Users at the workstations are volatile with
roaming profiles (Zenworks). So there would be the first novell-login to
gain network-access, receive desktop etc. and a second novell-login in
the terminal-server session. If that is the best thing working, I feel a
little doubt growing, whether I shall walk down this road.

OK, you're talking about 2008R2, I had Citrix 4.5 in mind, sorry. For
that version of citrix there's no need for a second 'novell-login', it
is handled during the Citrix-Login. So there is no Novell-Client as a
Citrix-App needed. Users login to citrix, the NovellClient and ZEN DLU
create the users and map all drives defined in the login-script(s).

What's about setting up cifs-shares at the server-side and net use on
the client side (inside the terminal session)? We use it for some legacy
apps and some thumb devices, e.g. scanners which should save the
documents on ncp-volumes.

BTW:
Novell implemented DomainServicesforWindows (DSfW)which will act as an
AD-Server. I'm not familar with DSfW, but maybe this is what you need.
One reason to implement was to support Citrix in version bigger than
4.5. AFAIR you can't install DSfW on an exististig server, you have to
setup a new one and choose DSfW as pattern.

That would be a client function and has nothing at all to do with running
eDirectory as a service on Windows as a server OS.
