Migrating without the Migraines, Part 3: AMP and iSCSI on Open Enterprise Server for Linux

Novell Connection Magazine - November/December 2005

Here's an excerpt:

The time is right to migrate to Linux, but the question is, where do you start--and how? Novell has a few ideas...This is the third article in a three-part series that describes six straight-forward migration projects. For each project you read about in this series, you'll walk away with an understanding of what you need to learn, know and do to install a specific network service on a server running Novell Open Enterprise Server for Linux.

Open Enterprise Server offers both NetWare 6.5 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 in one package, allowing you to incorporate one or both of these platforms into your network. With Open Enterprise Server, NetWare and Linux coexist peacefully, enabling you to run both side by side without a hitch. Regardless of the platform (or platforms) you choose, Open Enterprise Server offers all of the staple Novell services?including networking, identity, communication, collaboration and application services.

The first article in this series presents descriptions of Projects 1 and 2. For Project 1, the article explains how to install Open Enterprise Server for Linux complete with Novell eDirectory into an existing tree. For Project 2, the article provides an overview of the steps required to migrate Novell Storage Services (NSS) from an existing server running NetWare 5.1 or later to Open Enterprise Server for Linux. (See "Blow Your Mind," Novell Connection, July/August 2005.)

The second article in this series presents descriptions of Projects 3 and 4. For Project 3, the article provides an overview of the steps you take to upgrade Novell queue-based printing on a server running NetWare 5.1 or later to Novell iPrint on Open Enterprise Server for Linux Support Pack SP 1. For Project 4, the article describes how to deploy Open Enterprise Server for Linux SP 1 as a standalone Novell iFolder 3.1 server. (See "The Perfect Connection," Novell Connection, September/October 2005.)

This article presents descriptions of Projects 5 and 6, the last two migration projects in this series. For Project 5, the article explains the gist of the steps you take to move existing files associated with Apache, MySQL and PHP/Perl (collectively referred to as AMP) off of a server running NetWare 6.0 or NetWare 6.5 onto a single Open Enterprise Server for Linux. For Project 6, the article describes how you can set up Open Enterprise Server for Linux to access an iSCSI Storage Area Network (SAN).
