4.5 Installing Additional Products

After the initial installation, you can install other networking products on your OES NetWare server. For specific product information, see the product documentation in the Open Enterprise Server online documentation.

Although many products can be installed during the Customized NetWare Server installation, some additional products such as Novell Cluster Services™ can be installed only after completing the server installation. You can install additional products using Novell Deployment Manager (remotely) or from the GUI server console page (locally).

IMPORTANT:When installing additional products through the post-install procedure, make sure you use the same version overlay CDs as the version of NetWare on the server. If the server is running OES/NetWare 6.5 SP6, you must use the SP6 overlay CDs.

Installing Additional Products Using Deployment Manager

  1. Log in to the network from a Windows workstation running Novell Client software.

  2. Run nwdeploy.exe (or nwdeploynobrowser.exe for the non-browser version), located at the root of NetWare 6.5 SP6 CD 1 (Operating System).

  3. Under Post-Install Tasks, click the Install NetWare 6.5 Products link.

  4. Follow the on-screen instructions for adding the desired products.

Installing Additional Products Using the GUI Server Console Page

  1. Insert NetWare 6.5 SP6 CD 2 (Products) into the CD drive of the server.

  2. (Conditional) If necessary, start the GUI server console page by entering startx at the console prompt.

  3. Click Novell > Install.

  4. Click Add.

  5. Specify the root directory of the CD and click OK.

  6. Select the postinst.ni file.
