For a while now I have wanted to see how many controls eDirectory really could handle, even if they were not supported. It should be mentioned loudly and clearly that as of eDirectory 8.8.5 some of these controls work but THEY ARE NOT SUPPORTED so if they do not work properly submit a bug or an enhancement but don't expect a quick response. Also for some of these there are definite limitations with how they work. I'll try to cover those as I go.
Every day it seems I find something new that Linux Just Does. Last week I finally decided I needed to learn about "shared storage" and started asking the resident experts here, who all pointed me to YaST. Much to my surprise iSCSI is built into YaST and works out of the box with SLES without much more than ten minutes and an understanding of the technology. For the quickest understanding of shared storage I can muster this article is now being created. Hopefully it will be as enlightening to others as this topic was to me.

Rajesh Battala explains how to use VMware's Disk Mount utility to access files inside the VMDK in offline mode.
Working at Novell in the Support organization I work with some of the best troubleshooters in and throughout the world. Many of the steps used in troubleshooting are common sense and laughed about commonly online ("Is it plugged in") and while these specifics are not that useful most of the time there are general practices that I have learned and feel need to be shared. The purpose of this article is to group everything that may help troubleshooting generally (and in some cases, specifically) for the benefit of those who may not have been in a support organization for several years. This is by no means the end-all, be-all of troubleshooting and I am by no means the best, but working in Novell's Support Forums some of these skills could speed up resolution times for those seeking help or even prevent the need for outside help altogether if applied.
Want to make sure you have a full copy of all volume trustee and IRF's on a per volume basis before beginning your migration to OES2 SLES? I did and this is what I came up with....
