15.0 QuickFinder Server

IMPORTANT:Beginning with OES 11 SP2, there is no active development or enhancement to QuickFinder, and support will be limited to security fixes. You can continue to store QuickFinder information on clustered data resources with Novell Cluster Services. For more information, see OES 11 SP3: Novell QuickFinder Server 5.0 Administration Guide.

In a Novell Cluster Services cluster, you must install QuickFinder on each node in the cluster. This registers QuickFinder Server with each of the web servers and application servers running on each server. On OES, QuickFinder is installed by default in the /var/lib/qfsearch directory. We recommend that you use the default path. After the installation, you must set up one or more virtual search servers to enable QuickFinder Server to work in a cluster.

When the Linux setup is completed, you are ready to manually migrate settings from the NetWare cluster to the Linux cluster. Set up QuickFinder on the OES cluster nodes, then manually migrate QuickFinder data from a NetWare node to an OES node.

For information about using the QuickFinder Server Manager and other procedures for QuickFinder, see the OES 11 SP3: Novell QuickFinder Server 5.0 Administration Guide.
