Thanks to Cool Solutions reader Andrew Barnett for contributing this tip on moving servers to a new container.
Our organization recently worked with Novell Consulting on a project, and they advised us to redesign our badly-designed tree. My colleague and I had recently installed ten new servers, and following the recommendations of Novell we decided to move the servers to a new container.
We had several problems in trying to do this, however. Some servers were clustered, and it was generally very time-consuming to move certificates, etc.
- We accessed the container that held the servers.
- We went into partition and replica view, and created this as a partition. We could then move the container to another part of the tree, along with all its associated objects.
- We then merged the partition back into the tree.
The only thing that seemed not to work was iManager. To fix this we went to the Netware system console and typed the following:
Then we went into sys:\apache2\conf\httpd.conf and make sure at the bottom of the file it had the following line:include sys:/tomcat/4/conf/nps-Apache.conf
This recreated the keystore file for Tomcat. Back at the system console we typed the following:
tc4stop ap2webdn tomcat4 ap2webup
That fixed the iManager issue.
