        This guide explains the first stage of a Novell NetWare migration project: migrating directory, file, and print services to Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 Active Directory® directory services. The guidance includes a discussion of building the Active Directory infrastructure on which you will migrate these services. Having the infrastructure in place positions you to complete this migration and then define future stages such as moving mail and other applications or adding Active Directory features.

        You will learn how to plan your project, develop the solution for the new environment, determine the best migration strategy for your environment, and migrate directory, file, and print services to the new environment.
