Novell versus MS networking

145 Views, 2 Replies

Are there any pros/cons for Novell versus MS networking? If a company has
used Novell (maybe because that was the only networking software to use
before MS networking came on the scene) but is currently running a mixed
network with both winnt and novell servers are there reasons to keep both?
Wouldn't it be simpler to transition over completely to MS networking using
winnt or win2k servers?

Actually both will work and coexist.... We have 2 NT servers, One Novell 3.12
and one Novell 4.11... All can spool and print.

I prefer the stability, although slightly more difficult setup of the Novell
servers fro printing and plotting.

Dennis,

I haven't had any stability or printing issues with our windows nt network.
Although, I did change our plotting from direct to the hp plotters to
spooling through the server. I suppose to research this in any depth, I'll
probably have to go to novell's web site and do some digging or contact
them.

Thanks,
