I am in the process of moving a business' servers to a virtualized solution; so far so good, but the main problem is an old novell server (v4.something, from 1999)
it seems to me that its functions are more like active directory's --> auth users, map shares depending on group membership, fileserver
are there any other functions of this ancient program which I should be aware of ? can it be replaced with AD or a samba deployment ?
supposing I have to keep this solution, is it possible to install a higher version (I have found 5.11 on some torrents) and import somehow the old config ?
(the fact of seeing its ancient-ms-dos-like console makes me stay away from this ... software :))
