    Connecting to Novell eDirectory

    Martijn ter Schegget

      Hi all,

      I've been getting several questions from customers about Novell eDirectory lately. Has anyone been successful at authenticating users against Novell eDirectory?

      As far as I can see there are two possible scenarios:

      1. Give Novell users / groups filesystem-level access to QVWs on the server (using QVserver in NTFS mode) -> am I correct on this one, or is this only possible for Windows domains?
      2. Find a DSP (directory service plugin) which will communicate with eDirectory, and use QVserver DMS mode -> haven't seen a trace yet of any DSP for eDirectory yet...
      3. (Scenario 2b: install the SDK and build your own DSP...)

      Could anyone of you tell me if my assumption in scenario 1 is correct (as I'm not an eDirectory expert), or does anyone know if there already is an eDirectory DSP?

      With regards,
