Managing Live Migrations from Novell NetWare to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server
By Cindy Stap, Dean Oliver, and Ahmad Ali

For many IT departments, avoiding downtime for mission-critical systems during migrations and upgrades is a top priority. The Novell Cluster Services tool can help manage live cluster migrations from the Novell NetWare OS to Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.

The Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) platform supports both NetWare and Linux, providing a bridge between these operating systems and an environment for migration. As OES NetWare systems are gradually replaced with OES Linux systems, Novell Cluster Services can help minimize or eliminate downtime during migration by allowing administrators to build heterogeneous server clusters comprising both NetWare and Linux servers. This article describes steps for configuring Linux nodes and adding them to existing NetWare clusters as well as considerations for configuring heterogeneous clusters.
