3.2.2 New Novell Cluster Services Plug-in for iManager 2.7.5 and Later

The Clusters plug-in for Novell iManager 2.7.5 or later supports the management of OES and NetWare clusters and resources. The availability of different cluster management features depends on the version of Novell Cluster Services and the server platform that are installed on the cluster being managed. A comparison of the old and new interface is available in What’s New (January 2013 Patches) in the OES 2 SP3: Novell Cluster Services 1.8.8 Administration Guide for Linux.
