Common login to Novell Netware 3.12 and Exchange server


Wei Sin

Hi there,
my client users login to Netware 3.12 at startup but for
now we are trying to set up an Exchange server 5.5. How
can we configure the login in such a way that it is a
single login but to both Novell and Exchange servers?
Client computers are a mix of Windows 98, ME and XP. For
now, clients have to manually login to Exchange server
when they use Outlook.

I receive this message when trying to specify a domain
controller for login in Outlook.

The error was: "DNS name does not exist"
Common causes of this error include the following:
-The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS
-One or more of the following zones do not include
delegation to its child zone: domainservername

What does it mean?

I already enabled DNS service to run on Exchange server
but why can't the DNS record for my Exchange server be
found? I manually setup my Exchange server's IP address
to be an internal IP address.

What domain server are you using NT4 or w2k?

In either case with that mix of clients - your best bet probably is to
implement WINS.

If all clients and servers refer to the same WINS server - you should be able
to specify a domain without errors.

If the domain/exchange accounts have the same username and password as the
netware ones - login should be transparent
