  15. Given an existing networking environment with OES Linux and OES NetWare servers installed, be able to configure NTP time synchronization between Linux and NetWare servers to prepare for adding an OES Linux server to an existing eDirectory tree to meet customer technical and business requirements for migrating NSS volumes from a NetWare server to an OES Linux server and make the migration transparent to the end user.
  16. Use ndsconfig to add a Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) Linux server to an existing eDirectory tree.
  17. Use YaST to configure eDirectory user access (through LUM) to a Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) Linux server.
  18. Evaluate and select a Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) storage solution that meets a customer's OES requirements for migrating NSS volumes to a Novell OES Linux server.
  19. Use YaST or the ncpcon tool to configure an NCP server and user rights on a Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) Linux server.
  20. On a Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) Linux server, use YaST to install Novell Storage Services (NSS), the NSSMU management utility to configure NSS pools and volumes, and the rights command to assign NSS file system rights for NSS pools and volumes.
  21. Install the Server Consolidation and Migration Toolkit on a workstation, prepare the source (NetWare) and destination (Novell Open Enterprise server) Linux server for an NSS migration, create and run a Consolidation Project in the Server Consolidation Utility to migrate NSS volumes from a NetWare server to an OES Linux server, and test access from the Novell Client.
  22. Describe to a customer the Samba roles for Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) servers and the purpose of using CIFS/Samba on an OES Linux server for file access without the Novell Client.
  23. Describe to a customer the architecture and purpose of using Universal Passwords for accessing files through Novell Samba from Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) servers for file access without the Novell Client.
  24. Use YaST, iManager, and Novell Remote Manage (NRM) to install Novell Samba and configure Samba (smb.conf file) and Samba users for file access from a Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) Linux server or an OES NetWare server without the Novell Client.
  25. Describe to a customer the architecture and purpose of the Novell Samba components on a Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) Linux server for file access without the Novell Client.
  26. Describe to a customer the purpose and architecture of iPrint on Linux and NetWare servers.
  27. Use iManager and YaST to set up and manage an iPrint server on a Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) Linux server.
  28. Test the iPrint web page for installing the iPrint client on a Linux or Windows desktop.
  29. Use the Novell Server Consolidation and Migration Toolkit, YaST, and iManager to migrate the Print Manager and Driver Store from a NetWare server to a Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) Linux server and complete post-migration tasks (such as modifying the iPrint DNS record).
  30. Describe how the purpose and architecture of Novell iFolder 3.x meets a customer's technical and business requirements for file access, management, and synchronization.
  31. Plan for an iFolder 3.x implementation by considering security, workload, naming conventions for usernames and passwords, admin users, iFolder user account, and data and synchronization customer requirements.
  32. Use YaST and iManager to install and configure iFolder 3.x Server, iFolder Web Access Server, and the Novell iFolder 3 Plug-in, and provision iFolder users on a Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) Linux server.
  33. Use the iFolder welcome page, iManager, and other commands or tools to distribute and install the iFolder client, start/stop/restart the iFolder services, manage the Simias log and Simias access log, recover individual files or directories, configure system policies, modify iFolder LDAP settings, manage the iFolder Web Access server, configure iFolder users, and manage iFolders.
  34. Use the iFolder client and web access to test managing iFolder accounts and preferences, managing iFolders, and using Novell iFolder 3.x Web Access.
