VNU Net: IBM advises users to be wary of Win 2000

“IBM warned partners and customers to be cautious of the
forthcoming Windows 2000 operating system last week, after it
uncovered several problems with the latest test version.
…identified a lack of synchronisation between the Active
Directory system and other industry standard Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol (LDAP) directories, as well as interoperability
problems with Microsoft Management Console in the Release Candidate
1…”

“…Adam Jollans, software marketing manager for NT, Linux and
Solaris at IBM EMEA, reiterated the vendor’s commitment to Windows
2000 but admitted IBM will advise customers to evaluate the
product for at least six months or ‘wait for the first service
pack’.”

Provider (MCSP) Hawke Systems agreed with IBM’s warning.”
