The Novell® Server Consolidation and Migration Toolkit 1.1 combines the Novell Server Consolidation Utility 4.11 and the NetWare® Migration Wizard 8.1 under a single launch interface. This interface asks you what type of consolidation or migration project you want to perform and then launches the appropriate utility automatically.
Server Consolidation Utility 4.11 is a file-and-print consolidation tool to help you copy data between existing servers, including Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) for NetWare and Linux and Windows* servers, and migrate network printers. The automation provided by the Server Consolidation Utility eliminates the need to choose from various third-party utilities that would help you perform these tasks individually.
NetWare Migration Wizard 8.1 migrates the file system data and eDirectory™ (formerly NDS®) database from an existing NetWare server to a faster, more reliable NetWare server. After the data is copied, the old server is brought down and the new server assumes its identity.
This section provides an overview of server consolidation and migration to help you understand how the utilities in the toolkit work. It also provides some example scenarios of how you can use these utilities to consolidate or migrate your network resources.
For a list of new features and enhancements to the versions of Server Consolidation Utility and NetWare Migration Wizard included in the toolkit, see Section 2.0, What’s New.
