The company I work for has about 250 clients running SQL Server on the
Netware platform. We are going to start migrating these clients to the
NT4.0 platform in a few months. Has anyone done this successfully, and
what kind of head aches are we talking about here?

We migrated from 4.x on Netware to System 11 on NT and couldn't be
happier. Netware's a terrible application-server platform IMO, and if
anything crashed it killed the whole server. NT has been much better all
around for us at least. The only issue you'll be dealing with is that
you'll have to export ALL your data and import it into newly created
databases under NT. Database dumps will not work across different
operating systems.
