Over the past couple of months, I have been involved with migrating remote NetWare servers to Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES2) Linux. During this time, there are some lessons that have been learned that hopefully this article will be able to help you, the reader, perform your own migrations more smoothly and avoid some of the pitfalls we encountered.

A few weeks ago Novell launched a guide on Upgrading from NetWare to OES2SP1 Linux. This guide contains information on using Migration tools, doing rolling cluster upgrades, OES Linux 3rd party services, and much more.

I had a problem installing Novell Open Enterprise Server on Dell Optiplex 755 or 620. The problem was that the installation runs fine from CDs, but when it finished, the operating system could not find the hard disks ...
If you're not familiar with iPrint, it is one of the nicest end-user technologies I think Novell develops. On Linux I find the technology even more appealing.... no rebooting, no restarting applications to use printers, nothing strange like that. With that said iPrint wasn't developed originally for a 64-bit platform, and wasn't developed for Linux first. That it works so well just makes me that much more pleased.
There is a separate Platform Agent rpm available for 64-bit platforms. 64-bit Platform Agent installation is just a plain rpm installation. There is no installer script for it. Currently 64-bit Platform Agent is supported only on Linux (SLES and RHEL). Here's a tip from Mahantesh Hongal that explains the differences between the 64-bit Platform Agent installation and the 32-bit Platform Agent installation.
