22.1 Planning Your Migration

Make sure your setup addresses the following requirements before you migrate DNS to the new platform.

22.1.1 System Requirements

  • An eDirectory integrated DNS server installed on the target machine.

    NOTE:In a Server ID Swap scenario, do not select Create DNS Server option at the install time. This avoids the creation of the DNS server for the temporary NCP server. So when migration is completed, the existing DNS server objects are considered.

  • Schema extension is already done on the destination server tree and DNS-DHCP Group, and the RootServerInfo and DNS-DHCP Locator objects are created.

  • The user running the migration process should have rights to update files on the target machine. This user should also be included in the DNS-DHCP group in eDirectory.

22.1.2 Supported Platforms

The following platforms are accepted as valid source platforms for the migration process:

  • NetWare 6.5 SP5

  • NetWare 5.1 SP8

  • NetWare 6.0 SP5 and later versions

22.1.3 Coexistence

OES 2 Linux can coexist with the following operating systems:

  • NetWare 6.5 SP6

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10

  • SLES 10 SP1

  • SLES 10 SP4
