Environment

Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 SP2 (OES11SP2)
Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 SP1 (OES11SP1)
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 3 (SLES 11 SP3)
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 2 (SLES 11 SP2)
Domain Services for Windows
DSfW
NetIQ eDirectory

Situation

Will a Microsoft Windows Application requires the ability to read Security event logs on domain controllers in managed domains work with DSfW?

Resolution

Since Linux does not have "Event Viewer" logs and this functionality only exists with Windows OS, this will not work directly against a DSfW domain.  The application may work over a Cross Forrest Trust to a Windows AD domain.  The dependency rests the software supporting a Cross Forrest Trust configuration.
