Creating a Campus NT Network using NT4 and OpenVMS
Topic Area:
Track: Enterprise Solutions
Topic: Intergration w/Windows NT
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/09/99   01:30 PM     Duration: 90 Min.     Room: 15B

Presenter:
David Lyon & Hari Singh
Systems & Network Analyst, Cal Poly Pomona University  

Abstract:
This session is a case study of a campus wide implementation of a Windows NT network in a mixed NT/OpenVMS environment. The goal of the project was to provide a campus wide NT environment with a single domain using existing licensed software and hardware where possible and to integrate the environment into OpenVMS so that users would access various resources using NT credentials. The outcome was a NT network that was jointly managed by the central IT department along with other campus departments. Some services were centrally provided while others were departmental but all were authenticating to the central domain controller (single point authentication). This was extended to other “trusting” domains as well. Where high reliability and backups were required, OpenVMS servers running PATHWORKS Advanced Server (NT services) were centrally provided. The technical details covering feasibility testing, planning, overall design and implementation will be covered as well as the technical/political hurdles and solutions. The ongoing integration of Exchange into this environment will also be discussed.

Objectives:
Understanding of the technical requirements to implement a large NT domain in a mixed OpenVMS/NT environment.
 
Understanding of the requirements and tools needed to manage such an environment and to provide some level of fault tolerance.
 
Understanding of the pitfalls and solutions.  

Prerequisites for attendees:
A minimal working knowledge of Windows NT, OpenVMS and PATHWORKS Advanced Server.

Required Skill Level:
Advanced
For experienced professionals in application development & system management; those working on large & complex systems
