2.9 Naming the Server

The OES NetWare server name must be unique from all other servers in the eDirectory tree. The name can be between 2 and 47 alphanumeric characters and can contain underscores (_) and hyphens (-), but no spaces or periods (.).

IMPORTANT:The server name must be different from the name that you plan to use for the eDirectory tree.

  2. Select the Edit Config.sys tab.

  3. Type the desired information into the config.sys field on the right side of the screen.

(Optional) Specify the Server’s ID Number

The server requires a unique identification number for IP/IPX and IP with Compatibility Mode configurations. Changing the server ID number during this portion of the installation places the new server ID number in the autoexec.ncf file. The new server ID number takes effect after you reboot the server.

NetWare can be customized to function in several languages.

    You can use NetWare server and client utilities in other languages, if the additional language is installed on the server.
