BUS 290 FedEx: Protecting Clustered Data on NetWare, SLES and OES
Hear about the success that FedEx has had using Novell clusters for data protection and business continuance since 2002. FedEx has been a pioneer in NetWare cluster support dating back to their installation of one of the first 4-node NetWare 5.1 clusters ever built and used in a commercial, production environment.

The discussion will detail the review process they used to determine their need for clustering. Then, once they had their system up and running, how the need for a cluster-aware data protection solution became painfully apparent. How did they decide on Syncsort's Backup Express? What features were important to them and still are today?

What success have they had? Hear them detail the successes they have had running Novell clusters, how they have expanded from their initial installation, and how they used that success as the basis for a NetWare cluster installation at their World Headquarters.

Hear their plans for the future. How do they see SLES and OES? How do they fit into their plans and what testing are they doing now to help in their planning?

TUT 102 The Novell Client for Linux
The Novell Client for Linux extends the capabilities of Linux desktops with native access to NetWare and OES. It enables Linux workstations to login to the network and execute existing network login scripts. The Novell Client for Linux will support traditional Novell protocols (NDAP, NCP, and RSA) and other open protocols (LDAP, CIFS, and NFS). Attendees will learn more about these and other advanced features of the Novell Client for Linux and see a live demonstration.

TUT 206 Monitoring Server Health Throughout Your Network Using Open Enterprise Server
Open Enterprise Server implemented the OpenWBEM specification based on the Common Information Model (CIM) in building a powerful new server monitoring utility. This monitoring and management interface allows administrators and help desk personnel to monitor the performance of their network servers in real-time. With the click of the mouse you can see instant data points showing CPU utilization, network through-put, memory configuration both virtual and physical, along with processes running and the memory being allocated to each. The bubble up page will provide a quick view of the server status up or down, and for OES enabled servers, a quick status for health, based on each major category, providing a status of good, warning, or down.

TUT 209 Open Enterprise Server Tips and Tricks
Is Open Enterprise Server (OES) a possibility in your company's future? This session will dive into some of the "nuts and bolts" on how to get Open Enterprise Server up and running with a heavy focus on the Linux side of things. Get the low down on things like eDirectory install and Time Sync, installing NSS and generally getting to grips with OES.

TUT 211 iPrint in Open Enterprise Server
With Open Enterprise Server you now have a choice. The same iPrint features that are available on NetWare including simple printer installation and customized viewing of printers are available on OES. The best browser-based end user printing experience is now running on Linux and Mac OSX. Learn of the new features offered in the latest version of iPrint including easy migration from legacy QMS and NDPS to iPrint.

TUT 212 NCP on Linux: How it works
Integrating a Linux server into your NetWare network just got a lot easier. With OES, your Linux server can support traditional NetWare Core Protocol (NCP) clients. This allows a Linux server to become part of an existing NetWare network and support the NCP client workstations. This session will discuss the details of supporting NCP clients with OES, compatibility with NetWare NCP servers, access control, configuration, mapping NetWare volumes onto Linux filesystems, and related issues.

TUT 214 Migrating from Windows NT to Open Enterprise Server
With support of Windows NT having already reached it's end-of-life, many organizations are still struggling with how to handle their legacy Windows environments. This session will provide in-depth information on how to migrate an enterprise Windows environment to Open Enterprise Server (OES) and Samba. This information is based on Novell Consulting's experience in assisting a Fortune 100 customer in their enterprise-wide migration from Windows NT to OES and Samba. Specific details of planning, performing, and validating the migration process will be demonstrated.
