Novell DirXML Starter Pack is included in NetWare 6.5, so customers can synchronize user information and reconcile directories in a mixed environment.

DirXML is a data-sharing solution that leverages Novell eDirectory to synchronize, transform, and distribute information across applications, databases, and directories.

The solution included with NetWare 6.5 provides licensed synchronization of information held in NT Domains, Active Directory Domains, and eDirectory trees. When data from one system changes, DirXML detects and propagates these changes to other connected systems based on the business rules you define.
