MS Admins know Active Directory is about the holey grail of authentication in corporate networking. Single Sign Authentication says it all. I have reliazed I am spinning in the wind to have two different auth mechanisms. My scope of view is automate any and everything that can be. Consolodate services to save money (microsoft licence fees) Means actually only two MS servers Primary and Secondary Domain Controllers (PDC and BDC). I left out LDAP Servers for a reason. Not so easy to use and setup versus AD. -- MailScanner is like deodorant... You hope everybody uses it, and you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
