NetStorage is automatically installed and preconfigured to default settings during the Open Enterprise Server (OES) installation. OES is now part of the SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server (SLES) 9 installation. For more information, see the OES Linux Installation Guide . You can change the NetStorage configuration from the default settings during the OES installation. See Changing the NetStorage Default Configuration below for more information. For most networks, you need NetStorage installed on only one server; however, this might vary depending on the size of your network and your organization's needs. For example, if your company is geographically dispersed, you might want to install NetStorage on one server in each geographic region.
You can use Novell® iManager to change the NetStorage configuration after the OES installation. For more information on iManager, see Section 5.0, Administering NetStorage.
