5.1 Installing AFP during OES 11 SP2 Installation

  1. In the YaST install for OES, on the Installation Settings page, click Software to go to the Software Selections page.

    For information about the entire OES 11 SP2 installation process, see the OES 11 SP2: Installation Guide.

  2. From the OES Services option, select Novell AFP. Click Accept.

    The following additional services are automatically selected:

    • Novell Backup / Storage Management Services (SMS)

    • NetIQ eDirectory

    • Novell Linux User Management (LUM)

    • Novell NCP Server

    • Novell Storage Services (NSS)

    • Novell Remote Manager (NRM)

  3. Select an appropriate install option.

    Typical Configuration: A two-click express installation with minimal user inputs. This method collects only essential information to proceed with the OES configuration and uses default values for most options. In case you want to modify the default configuration parameters; in the OES install summary screen, click the respective links and modify them.

    Custom Configuration: This method of OES configuration requires inputs for all parameters.

  4. On the Novell Open Enterprise Server Configuration window, click Change and then click Novell AFP Services.

  5. Select the IP address of the LDAP server from the Directory Server Address drop-down list. If you do not want to use the default, select a different LDAP server in the list.

    Add Proxy User as Trustee of User Contexts: This option is selected by default. Deselecting this option will not grant the AFP proxy user the rights required over eDirectory contexts to search for a AFP user in the subtree.

    Enable Subtree Search: This option is not selected by default. Selecting this option enables AFP to search for a user in the entire subtree of selected contexts.

  6. Browse or specify a user (existing or created here) with rights to search the LDAP tree for AFP objects.

    If you selected the Use Common Proxy User as default for OES Products check box during eDirectory configuration, the Proxy user name and password fields are auto-populated. If a common proxy is not configured, the AFP Proxy User Name field is populated with a system-generated proxy user name.

  7. Specify a password (existing or created here) for the Proxy user.

    This field is disabled if you selected the Use Common Proxy User as default for OES Products check box during eDirectory configuration. If a common proxy is not configured, the Proxy Password field is auto-populated with a system-generated proxy password.

  8. Retype the same password in the Verify Proxy User Password field.

  9. Click Add, then browse to search for an existing eDirectory context. Specify the list of contexts to search for AFP users. They will be sequentially searched when AFP users enter their credentials.

    The AFP server searches through each context in the list until it finds the correct user object. For example, if users exist in ou=users, provide the context. If there are any users in ou=user1,ou=users, it is not resolved unless you have a subtree search enabled. The ou=user1,ou=users context must be added explicitly.

  10. Click Next.

  11. Click Apply to save the changes.
