Central control over many systems

Do you know if it is possible to manage the whole user management and access rights of a multiserver, multiOS, multicountry, network knowing that we must be able to create a user at one place with a predefined role and then it has to modify the NT User management system, the Unix user management system, and every application on these 140 servers have to be updated with the new user created one time?

I thank you for your response, to know if it is possible or not.

Wow! It sounds like you have a lot of work to do!

Unfortunately, the short answer to your question is NO. I am not aware of any single tool that allows integrated, central administration of Domino, Notes, NT and Unix. However, there are tools that solve part of these problems for you, which do allows central control of some pieces.

For example, the Domino Administrator program allows you to do almost everything you need to do on a set of Domino servers, which may contain different operating systems. And the Domino Administrator allows you to create user accounts for Notes and NT at the same time, which is part of what you asked. Also, there are 3rd party products that help with Notes desktop software upgrades -- see www.InstallPump.com for one example.

If any reader knows about ways to integrate these chores to a greater extent, please let me know and I will pass it on.
