3.2 Migration

There is no need to migrate Novell Remote Manager from NetWare to Novell Remote Manager for Linux. Novell Remote Manager is selected for installation when any pattern from Open Enterprise Server is installed.

You can combine server groups for monitoring OES NetWare and OES Linux servers. You can save the group file locally or to an eDirectory object. See Saving a Group and Accessing an Existing Group.

Configuring Novell Remote Manager is somewhat different on an OES Linux server than an OES NetWare server. See Changing the Configuration.

Not all tasks that are available in Novell Remote Manager for NetWare are available on Novell Remote Manager for Linux, such as IP Address Management; however, you have the functionality to monitor the server health for individual servers or groups of servers, the ability to load and unload programs, and access console screens.
