The most straightforward approach for upgrading a BCC from NetWare to Linux is to remove the NetWare BCC setup, convert the cluster, and then configure a Linux BCC setup on the Linux clusters. It allows you to verify that the Linux clusters are configured and working properly independently of the BCC relationships.
Remove the BCC setup for the NetWare clusters.
Disable BCC on each BCC-enabled cluster resource in every peer cluster.
Disable BCC on each of the NetWare peer clusters.
Stop the BCC drivers on the NetWare Identity Manager node.
Stop BCC on each node in every NetWare peer cluster.
Remove the NetWare Identity Manager node from each peer cluster.
For each peer cluster, convert the NetWare cluster nodes to Linux by following the instructions in the OES 11 SP1: Novell Cluster Services 2.1 NetWare to Linux Conversion Guide, but do not finalize the conversion at this time.
After all NetWare nodes have been removed from the peer clusters, finalize the conversion in each peer cluster.
For information, see OES 11 SP1: Novell Cluster Services 2.1 NetWare to Linux Conversion Guide.
Verify that the Linux clusters are working properly.
Verify that the BCC admin user and group exist and are configured as described in Section 5.3, Configuring a BCC Administrator User and Group.
Set up a new BCC on the Linux peer clusters. For information, see:
