NT Domain logins using OpenVMS as PDC?

» close window

The Question is:

Is there a way to have a user logging into an NT workstation machine to be validated using an OpenVMS SYSUAF file?

The Answer is :

  OpenVMS PATHWORKS can act as a PDC, and V7.1 and later can use
  external (domain) authentication as can most Microsoft systems.
  OpenVMS Engineering is expecting to release a version of OpenVMS
  that permits fully customizable external authentication -- one of
  the protocols expected to be supported as an initial part of this
  work is Kerberos.  This work is a direct extension of the existing
  domain external authentication support.
