change adlm from novell to nt

I have the adlm running on a novell server. The server is being replaced by
a windows 2000
server.
I understand that the new server will need the adlm loaded, new auth codes
will be needed as well.
My question is with the client PC's....
Will they need to be "uninstalled and re-deployed" (from the new server of
course)
or,
can I replace some DLL's and make it work...

I know that a Novell deployment differs from an Windows TCP/Ip deployment...
if it's only a few DLL's , it will save a ton of time...


Thanks

Official Answer: You will need to uninstall all of the workstations and create a new
deployment selecting the TCP/IP protocol from the setup menu, and then re-install all of
the clients.

Unofficial answer: NOTE: This will be completely unsupported by Autodesk. I've been able
to make this work before but there is no guarantee. You'll need to replace the
adesksys.dll in the same folder that the acad.exe file is in. If you are running NT or 9x
on the workstations you'll need to do a single deployment to get the file, if you're W2k
on the workstations you can get the file from
