3.3 What’s New (OES 11 SP1)

The Migration Tool in OES 11 SP1 has been modified to run on 64-bit SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 SP2. In addition to bug fixes, the Migration Tool provides the following enhancements and behavior changes.

Linux to Linux Service Migration

You can now migrate services from OES 2 SP2, OES 2 SP3, OES 11, and OES 11 SP1 source servers to an OES 11 SP1 target server using service-specific migration scripts. For information, see Service Migration in the OES 11 SP3: Migration Tool Administration Guide.

Enhanced Sync Performance

The Migration Tool data synchronization feature has been enhanced. You must upgrade the source server with the latest patches before performing migration.

  • If the source server is NetWare, contact Novell Technical Support (NTS) for information on patching the server.

Copy Trustees Only At the Directory Level

Synchronizes trustees only at the directory level. Trustees at the file level are not synchronized.

Do Not Copy Trustees

Trustees on the source server are not synchronized to the target server; only data is synchronized.
