I work for a school district and we are trying to decide if we should change from Novell to NT. I would be interested in the pros and cons of both as well as information on how hard it would be to switch from one to the other. Has anyone done this?
Hi--we converted our network last summer from Novell to NT & had a lot of little problems. Many of these came about because many of our clients were running DOS in addition to NT. If you are running any DOS clients, I would seriously consider staying with Novell. One of NT's biggest strengths is its user-friendliness since it uses the same interface as Win 95/98. Overall, if Novell is working fine for you &/or you're running DOS machines, I would recommend sticking with it--that is, unless you have a really good reason to convert to NT. Good luck!
