Before starting I must state that this article is conceptual rather than a technical document. Having worked on a number of clustering and virtualisation projects I often hear people say “now we have high availability for our virtual machines we no longer need Novell clustering”. I would disagree...
Shreyas Rao and Suresh Kumar GP explain how to configure and access the clustered NSS Volume on a DSfW server, and access the volumes from Windows without using the Novell client.
Ivan Vari shares an excellent document focusing on a design where XEN virtual machines (domU) are centrally managed according to a set policy and highly available. What is written here is the real thing not a demo and has been working in production for over 18 months. They use this technology for hosting many UNIX services including DNS, Web proxy, SMTP, NFS, VPN, CUPS, etc. and traditional NetWare services with OES2.

Sanjeev Gupta explains how to configure Novell Business Continuity cluster (BCC) and Identity Manager in a multiple eDir tree environment.
We were running out of file cache memory on our 6-node NetWare cluster, and we didn't have any money for new 64-bit servers and OES 2. Xen virtualization of NetWare allowed us to move certain services off of our larger cluster onto a pair of smaller clusters, on just two
servers. This allowed us to spread the file-serving load across all 6 nodes of the old cluster, and ease our memory problems. This is how we did it.
