I have not used Novell Xen or Starwind, I have worked with XenServer as well as the Xen packaged with both Debian and RHEL5. I did not try LVMoiSCSI when I tested XenServer as I didn't have an iSCSI host available at the time. That said from my understanding of iSCSI and LVM I can definitely hazard an educated guess which may help you in isolating the ...

What you're looking for is CIFS access on the NetWare server. Getting it up is actually pretty well documented. If you're using iManager, it should be under the Native File Access tabs. You may need to run 'cifsstrt' on the console before those changes take, but it's all there. Also, be sure 'cifsstrt' is in the autoexec.ncf file so it'll survive reboots. ...

I've spent some time prototyping Microsoft's Identity Lifecycle Manager a year ago. They've move things around since then, so this may not be accurate of the current state of the product. At the same time I did spend time working with Novell IDM. ILM had some marked differences from IDM. Significantly more connectors out of the box. Unlike Novell IDM, ...

Here is a tool called TrstRpt from Wolfgang Schreiber you can download (download link).

I'm going to assume you have IPX turned off. If not, let me know and I'll expand. The fastest way to make sure you connect to one interface and only one interface is to put the IP address you want to connect to in the "Server" field during login. Name resolution comes from several methods. SLP, based on whatever the Client has been configured Hints ...

As SpacemanSpiff noted, SLP is used to find servers and trees. However, if you cannot get multicast out the network connection, I would consider just entering the IP address/IP Name of the server or tree to try and connect. That will work even if SLP is not working, most of the time.

Moving folders into others is not logged. There are audit tools, but if you enable them, the volume of data generated will astound you. File operations happen far more often than expected and will fill any space you make available. Easy way is look in the directory for any salvageable files. If the folder is not there, then you know it was moved. Then ...

Netware's been dead for years really, though there's a lot of old-timers like myself who fondly remember it. You may find some disk recovery companies about that will give it a go, best just google in your local area for 'data recovery' and call them up. That said I'd be paying more attention to your backups (you make and test them right?) as even if you ...

1) No need for an eDir replica on Windows, but you do need an eDirectory replica somewhere. eDir will run on Windows, Solaris, AIX, or Linux. (And still on Netware if you want too). 2) The issue with case sensitive file names has to do with how Netware file systems (TFS or NSS) handle case sensitivity. They are case remembering but not case sensitive ...

Here you go... I feel your pain, I once had the same issue You can use ldapsearch eg: ldapsearch -LLL -x -h 172.16.0.223 -Z -D cn=admin,o=local -W "(&(objectclass=Person))" logintime If you want a nice clean csv file pipe it through this... | sed ':a;N;$!ba;s/ou=OFFICE1,o=local\n//g' | sed 's/dn: cn=//' | sed 's/logintime: //g' | sed 's/Z$//g' | ...

For DNS/DHCP, you can use the existing Nagios plugins from your Nagios server to check that they're DNS-ing and DHCP-ing properly. If your cluster's running on SLES, you should be able to install the Nagios plugins and NRPE on the SLES servers, then monitor that with check_nrpe on the Nagios box. That will let you check mount points, running processes, ...

Novell has a Groupwise client for Mac, and it works very well (but is java based, and has some font issues.) eDirectory, which is what Novell uses for logins, is basically LDAP and Mac can authenticate against it. The only thing I'm not sure you can do without your administrator's help is to mount file shares. I generally use the web access to our novell ...

Novell started with Netware with a user database called the Bindery. The password then as now was based on RSA Private/Public key pairs. With NDS in Netware 4.0 they kept the same basic password method, and it is reasonably secure. With eDirectory (what NDS got renamed to, around version 8.x of eDirectory, which was around the Netware 6.x timeframe) they ...

Here are a few things to try: Check for its local replicas/partitions by doing "ndsrepair -P". What partitions are displayed? The server may be in the tree but have no replicas (partitions) on it, which dovetails with geoffc's answer above, and is perfectly normal if the server was simply added to the tree. If there is no replica but you want to add one, I ...

We liked non-dedicated servers in 2.x, but they said all 3.x servers would be dedicated (boy, nobody will understand this joke today) We liked Bindery, but they forced us to move to NDS in 4.x We liked IPX, but they forced us to move to IP in 5.x We liked NetWare, after all, but now they try to force us to move to Linux in 6.x The decision is yours. ...

Filesharing should work with SP2 for OES 2. From http://www.novell.com/communities/node/9669/pull-trigger-enhancements-novell-open-enterprise-server-2-sp2-make-now-time-move-linux : ... "With the perpetual focus on interoperability, Novell provided Linux support for the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) and the Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol in its ...

You can find out the server version by typing VERSION at the server console. You can switch between screens of the server by pressing Alt-Esc, or switch to a particular screen by pressing Ctrl-Esc and selecting its number. The way you add users depends on the version of the server. Provided it is a relatively recent one, switch to the graphics screen or ...

If you are running Novell Netware, then as Dmityugov suggests, VERSION at the console. If you are running OES on Linux, then ssh to the server (or login at the Linux console, GUI or console only) and execute oes-SPident to see what version of OES you are running and regular SPident to see what version of SLES you are running. As for a UI, ConsoleOne is ...

Your problem is that you're running Apache 1.3 on your NetWare server. Apache 1.3 and Apache 2 (and 2.2) are linked to different base libraries. Apache 1.3 is linked to CLIB, the library that originated with NetWare 2.x. Apache 2.0 is linked to LIBC, the replacement for CLIB that was introduced around NetWare 5.x. Because of this, when accessing remote ...

All of that is built into mod_edir, a single module that does everything modrdir and modhdir did. Last I checked, that was shipping with SP8. I believe the config semantics are very similar. I had some teething troubles with it when I upgraded to Apache2 when we upgraded to NW6.5, but as of SP8 it had been rock stable. Some helpful links: Newer files: ...

In an AD environment, all DCs will sync their time with the DC that owns the PDC Emulator FSMO role. All client machines will then sync their time with a DC in their site. The DC that owns the PDC Emulator FSMO role is setup to not sync at all, but most admins will change this. It's common to set this DC to sync to an NTP server on the internet. As for ...

eDirectory servers use NTP or Novell TimeSync to synchronize to each other, you design a basic hierarchy. If the clients have the Novell client they should automatically sync to their nearest replica servers. If they don't then you have to configured time synchronization independently.

Novell trees and resources are typically located via SLP, one or more of the netware servers is an SLP DA, and you should configure the novell client to point at the server that is the DA. From there, as for administration, you should either configure RCONJ or use Novell remote manager to manage the box. This should be sufficient with minimum configuration ...

I've always used Netware with IPX/SPX for main protocol and only used IP for some of the specific apps that required it. You may need to install your client with IPX and then try searching for the tree.

If you're using standard Linux LDAP binding, rather than the Novell-specific bind methods available with Open Enterprise Server, the user you configure in rootbinddn needs to be able to change passwords for users. This is a specific right to grant in eDirectory. If the user specified is only allowed to query eDir, then password changes won't actually work. ...

Application examples: ArcServe Backup Agent for NetWare Pervasive.SQL v7 NetWare Lotus Domino Server SPX (analogous to TCP) was optimised for LANs, and used per-packet NACKs (packets were assumed to be received instead of explicitly acknowledged) and had no concept of a transmission window. Compare this with TCP, which uses an ACK for every ...

No. The client is running under your user/security context, and when you logoff, your user context goes away... along anything running in it. The only solution to this is to not log off. If you disconnect the remote session, instead of logging off, your sessions, and anything running it, continue to run.

You use ldapsearch and don't forget -ZZ for proper authentication
