NetIQ Ships NetWare Migrator 6.0

NetIQ Corp. announced the availability of NetIQ NetWare Migrator 6.0. NetWare Migrator 6.0 manages the migration from Novell NetWare to Windows 2000. The new version adds support for migration to Active Directory that can reduce time, costs, and potential disruption involved in implementing Windows 2000.

NetWare Migrator features the ability to migrate permissions - the security locks and keys for accounts and files - to Windows 2000. NetWare Migrator ensures that permissions are accurately and completely transferred into Active Directory. Comprehensive utilities provided by NetWare Migrator give the ability to migrate file permissions assigned to Novell Directory Services (NDS) organizational units, as well as permissions assigned to an account via the NetWare 'Security Equal To' attribute. NetWare Migrator can also merge multiple NetWare Bindery accounts into a single Windows 2000 account.

Other features include ActiveScript triggers to customize migration; a customizable permissions mapping file; and support for incremental file migration.
