This guide provides:
Planning and implementation instructions
Links to detailed information in other service-specific guides.
IMPORTANT:This book contains information for NetWare 6.5 SP8 and Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 SP1 Linux. For the latest information about using services on Linux, see the Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 SP2 Linux or later versions of the OES 2 SP2: Planning and Implementation Guide.
This guide is designed to help network administrators
Understand Open Enterprise Server 2 services prior to installing them.
Make pre-installation planning decisions.
Understand installation options for each platform.
Implement the services after they are installed.
We want to hear your comments and suggestions about this manual and the other documentation included with OES 2. Please use the User Comments feature at the bottom of each page of the online documentation, or go to www.novell.com/documentation/feedback.html and enter your comments there.
Changes to this guide are summarized in a Documentation Updates appendix at the end of this guide. The lack of such an appendix indicates that no changes have been made since the initial product release.
Additional documentation is also found on the NetWare 6.5 SP8 Documentation Web site.
The OES 2 SP2: Lab Guide for Linux and Virtualized NetWare is the hands-on counterpart to this guide and helps network administrators:
Set up a basic lab with an OES 2 Linux server, a virtualized NetWare® server, a test tree, and user objects that represent the different types of users in OES 2.
Use the exercises in the guide to explore how OES 2 services work.
Continue exploring to gain a sound understanding of how OES 2 can benefit their organization.
Additional Linux documentation is also found on the OES 2 Documentation Web site.
The terms OES 2 and OES 2 SP1 are both used in this guide. Generally, OES 2 SP1 is used to differentiate something that is new or changed for the SP1 release of OES 2. Unless otherwise indicated, all statements that refer to OES 2 also apply to OES 2 SP1.
In this documentation, a greater-than symbol (>) is used to separate actions within a step and items within a cross-reference path.
A trademark symbol (®, ™, etc.) denotes a Novell trademark. An asterisk (*) denotes a third-party trademark.
When a single pathname can be written with a backslash for some platforms, or a forward slash for other platforms, the pathname is presented with a forward slash to reflect the Linux* convention. Users of platforms that require a backslash, such as NetWare, should use backslashes as required by the software.
