I work for a school district in North Texas and I am thinking about moving away from eDirectory to active directory. I have been thinking about this for almost a year now. Is this the best thing to do, the pros and cons.
Reason I am thinking of moving is cause of instructional software. Almost all the instructional software that is coming out and the administrators want to use is built for microsoft servers and active directory. I mean it is getting harder and harder to find an instructional app that is not built soley for microsoft.
It just seems like the logical choice. I mean we only use novell servers for directory services, storage and printing…..I mean I can do the same things with microsoft servers and can allow the instructional folks to purchase what they need and want.
Another thing is there is no ( or i just havn’t found it yet ) support groups for novell in north texas. Funny, I know of 4 very large north texas school districts and one of which is one of the fastest growing cites & school districts in the nation that use only Novell and have a combined computer count of over 250,000 and I can’t seem to find a support group.
some one help me choose please!!!
