Novell Connection Magazine - Q2 2006

Here's an excerpt:

If you're as comfortable with NetWare services as you are in your favorite old jeans, we've got good news: the NetWare services you've grown to know and love are also available on Novell Open Enterprise Server for Linux. The arguably better news is that getting and keeping Open Enterprise Server for Linux up and running is easier than you might think–and this series intends to prove it to you.

This is the fifth article in a nine-part series designed to help you bridge your NetWare skills to Open Enterprise Server for Linux. Like Novell's free training program upon which it is based, this series seeks to demystify the process of deploying and managing Open Enterprise Server for Linux. (See

The first three articles in this series provided primarily background information, including a summary of the Linux history, a discussion of Linux fundamentals, and an introduction to Novell Open Enterprise Server. (If you haven't already, check these out: See Got Skills?, Back to Basics., and March 2006, Tech Talk #2..)

April's article (Part 4.) moved beyond this necessary foundation and took the first big step toward achieving the series' goal. To help bridge the gap between your NetWare know-how and Linux naivete, Part 4 walked through commonly-used NetWare commands and tasks to highlight the simple functional equivalents on Open Enterprise Server for Linux.

This article continues along the same vein charted by Part 4, again illustrating that your NetWare knowledge will serve you well in a Novell Linux environment. This article focuses on the server management tools that you use to remotely access and manage Open Enterprise Server for Linux. These tools will probably look and feel familiar to you, as they should: they are the same tools, with a few different features, that you might use now to conveniently manage NetWare from anywhere you can launch a browser and plug into the Internet:

  • Novell Remote Manager for Linux
  • Novell iManager 2.5
