  6. In Linux, open the console shell and stop the server communication service by using the following command:

    /etc/init.d/novell-jcc stop

  10. When you are prompted for the administration server IP, enter the same IP that you used during the initial installation.

  12. At the console shell, start the server communication service using the command:

    /etc/init.d/novell-jcc start
