Sami Kapanen of HAMK University was the very first respondent to this special Open Call we sent to the TTP group. (TTP is a group for IT professionals who work in schools and universities.) There is nothing like hearing from someone who has been there, done that. Thank you Sami, for sharing your story. And if any of you want to get in on the fun, we’d love to hear how you are using Novell Storage Manager too.

I have created a web view of datasync information for my non datasync admins. This is a PHP webpage that pulls the data directly out of the postgresql database that datasync uses. There are no modifications to the database. This webpage simply queries the database for the information and then displays that information in an easy to read format.

Shawn Iverson responded to our OES Open Call with this nice piece about migration. His meditative approach underscores the importance of personal tranquility when approaching delicate IT procedures. Put down that Red Bull, clear your mind, and let Shawn guide you to migration nirvana. [Which Wikipedia defines as "the imperturbable stillness of mind after the fires of desire, aversion, and delusion have been finally extinguished." Please let us know when you get there.]

We recently asked Cool Solutions readers to tell us what they love about Novell, and how they’ve managed to keep Novell in their organization over the years, despite fierce competition and changes in fashion.

The results revealed a unique loyalty to the classic Novell product lines, and a highly pragmatic line of reasoning: if it works, why replace it?

Here is a nice sampling of responses, from people who have come to rely on Novell’s technologies to make life easier for end users and IT alike.

Using GroupWise to Log Calls In KACE K1000

We needed to get users to log calls via emails to our KACE K1000 Appliance. The KACE uses its own internal smtp server and sets its own email address as username@kacename.dnsname. As the appliance is within our LAN and our smtp relay is outside, where we have no control, we could not simply add the kbox domain as a subdomain. And for some reason, even though the appliance name can be resolved by dns, GroupWise would not send email to it. There are plenty of tips on how to make this work on other email servers but none for GroupWise, but after much trial and error we finally got it to work. Hope this helps save someone else some time.
