Tips for Managing eDirectory

NetPro Computing recently completed a conference on managing Novell's eDirectory.

Following up on a conference last year that focused on Microsofts Active Directory, NetPro Computing recently completed a conference on managing Novells eDirectory.

Concurrently, NetPro announced its second e-book, "Tips and Tricks Guide to Active Directory Troubleshooting," which will be available later this month.

NetPro makes decent products for managing computer directories, and I found its first e-book, "The Definitive Guide to Active Directory Troubleshooting," helpful during a recent round of testing that required manipulating Active Directory and its replication schedule.

NetPros e-books, both of which are available for free, are like superlong white papers but, even so, are well worth checking out.

The conference, held in Scottsdale, Ariz., had sessions led by Novell and NetPro customers, allowing them to share best practices with attendees.

Contact NetPro at to access the e-books or to get more information about the presentations that were made at the conference.
