Novell Owns Up to NT
-- by Joseph C. Panettieri
Rather than striving to destroy Windows NT, Novell is seeking an accord. In fact, Novell will spend most of this year delivering new tools for tying Windows NT to NetWare and IntranetWare servers, and managing NT from NetWare.
The new offerings include:
- Novell IntranetWare Client for Windows NT Workstation. It lets your NT 3.51 and 4.0 desktops access IntranetWare file, print and directory servers.
- Novell Application Launcher. An extension of the IntranetWare client for NT, it helps you manage applications and electronic software distribution across IntranetWare and NT servers.
- Novell Workstation Manager. It allows Novell's NWADMIN utility to manage NT Workstation and IntranetWare user account information from a single point of control through NDS. Several major companies, including J.P. Morgan & Co., are raving about this utility.
- ManageWise Agent for Windows NT Server. When used in tandem with Novell ManageWise 2.1, this agent provides a single graphical user interface (GUI) for managing IntranetWare and NT servers.
- Novell Administrator for Windows NT. New Novell software that synchronizes NDS with NT domains to ease administration.
- NDS for Windows NT. Slated for delivery this summer, this heavily hyped package could give NT the enterprise directory it has so far lacked (see the NT Enterprise Edition feature, February)
Some of these new tools are available free on the Internet (http://www.novell.com/intranetware/ntint/). Imagine that: surfing Novell's Web site for the latest and greatest NT software. The times they are a-changin'
