Session ID Title
DL200 Securely Locking Down Your SLES/OES Server
The perimeter security that most organizations have in place has become less effective at stopping threats as businesses open their networks to remote employees, customers and partners. Thus it is important to secure critical infrastructure servers against attack, whether they are important outward-facing machines such as web servers, or critical inward-facing machines such as database servers and application servers. This session will describe how to use the various features of SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) and OES (Open Enterprise Server) to secure machines against attack. We will describe configuring classical security features such as the IPTables firewall for Linux, including how to configure your firewall with YaST. We will also describe Novell AppArmor.

SP201 Data Protection and Disaster Recovery -- What You Must Know For OES/Linux Migration
While transitioning your systems to open source platforms, it remains critical to keep your business continuity strategy sound. Is your organization upgrading to Open Enterprise Server? Are you moving systems such as APM and GroupWise? Do you utilize Novell Clustering Services? If so, you must consider the following questions:

---Will your current configuration support backup and recovery for an Open Enterprise Server iSCSI SAN?

--- Will it support OES clusters with mixed kernel nodes?

--- If you backup NSS data today, will you be able to restore that data to a Linux server in the future?

--- Will your data protection infrastructure support a GroupWise-for-NetWare to GroupWise-for-Linux migration?

This session includes must-know information about how to confidently maintain your data protection and disaster recovery SLAs while managing the migration process and beyond.

TUT115 Transition Admin Skills from NetWare to Linux with Open Enterprise Server
This session will show that managing and using Open Enterprise Server on Linux is very easy. Users can work with the a familiar file system; iPrint allows them to print and most other end-user functionality of NetWare is available from Linux as well. Administrators familiar with iManager and NetWare won't even notice the difference between the two operating systems. If the work of the administrator starts to touch Linux, some excellent tools are available to manage the Linux environment. Most important of all, this session will also describe the benefits of moving to OES Linux as compared to the NetWare platform.

TUT218 "Pure IP" Made Easy
This session will demonstrate a proper implementation of Service Location Protocol (SLP). SLP is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways of improving client workstation performance on your network. Migrating to "pure IP" operation is often perceived as ?difficult?. However, it is actually quite easy. Furthermore, by preparing your network for SLP, you'll be able to discover and clean up a number of long-term network problems. This session will guide you through all of the preparations needed to implement SLP on your OES/Linux and/or NetWare based network. This session also includes demonstrations on setting up SLP on OES/Linux and NetWare.
