Taiwan-based DAS Technology has made available LSP for Mac OS X Server, a new tool designed to simplify migration from Windows NT or Windows 2000 servers to Apple's Xserve running UNIX-based Mac OS X Server software. The software lets users migrate users, groups, passwords, shared files, permissions, and directories from Windows servers to Mac OS X Server.

LSP for Mac OS X Server automatically converts users and groups and copies files from a Windows server to Mac OS X Server. It also migrates Web pages being served by an existing Windows machine to Apache Web server, which is included with Mac OS X Server. In addition, it can copy any FTP files and configuration parameters from the Windows environment and even migrate the Windows NT server's DNS and DHCP configurations to Mac OS X Server.

DAS is also developing a companion product to ease migration from Microsoft Exchange to Mac OS X Server. Look for that product to arrive in 2003.
