Can the IDM3 User Application run on SLES9 without eDirectory? In other
words, does eDirectory have to be installed with a read/write replica on
the SLES9 server where the UserApp is running? Or does the SLES9 server
just need LDAP connectivity to eDirectory running on a different server
(for example, a NetWare server)?

Secondly, does the core IDM3 engine (metadirectory engine) have to be
installed on the same server as the UserApp or can the engine be placed on
a NetWare server and configured to connect to the UserApp remotely?

Sorry, the docs are a little vague as to what components go where.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
