Response to: Why leave out eDirectory?

There's a problem with this:

"Novell's DirXML product will synchronize eDirectory data stored on a Linux server with [AD] data *stored on a Windows server...*"

We want Linux/UNIX and legacy Windows desktops to connect to UNIX/Linux servers, so what's the point in giving companies an incentive to buy another Micro$oft server? Any Linux/UNIX directory service, if it is to be compatible with AD, needs to be able to run AD *itself*.

    AD is a service that runs on WINDOWS ONLY. Why would you want to build a crappy implementation of a directory for LINUX. Yes I know...thouse legacy windows desktops just like to talk to other windows boxes

    The game plan is install eDirectory, but the problem is the only real CIFS piece at the moment is SAMBA and does not integrated with eDirectory....solution NetWare 7.0 + ZENworks for Linux all coming very soon!
