Novell Connection Magazine: Getting Integrated with Linux
Part Three of a Three Part Series

Novell Connection Magazine - 01 2007
Here's an excerpt:
This article is the third in a three-part series aimed to acquaint you with Novell Open Enterprise Server and perhaps ease some of the anxiety you're feeling about making the jump from NetWare. The content is taken from the Novell training course Integrating Novell Open Enterprise Server for Linux.
Are you convinced yet that it's time to give Linux a try? I'll assume that you're not, and it's my job in Part 3 of this series to give you that last little nudge. In Parts 1 and 2 of this series you were introduced to a few of the more interesting benefits and features of Novell Open Enterprise Server for Linux. In Part 3, I introduce you to two more features. Go ahead and install Novell Open Enterprise Server for Linux so you can see it work. Then take a look at Integrating Novell Open Enterprise Server for Linux, Course 3077.
In Part 1, you were shown that your NetWare experience gives you a nice head start on conquering the Linux learning curve. You already know the Web-based tools you use to manage Novell services on Linux: iManager, iMonitor and Remote Manager. And with a little practice you can become as familiar with the command line in Linux as you are with the system console on NetWare.
In Part 2, you were shown how straightforward storage services and file sharing are on Linux. You were shown that NCP (the client and file access protocol you know and love) and Novell Storage Services are alive and well on Novell Open Enterprise Server for Linux.
In Part 3, I cover the following:
- * Migrating iPrint from NetWare to Open Enterprise Server Linux
- * Installing and configuring iFolder 3.2 on an Open Enterprise Server Linux server
