24.0 Novell iFolder Upgrade, Migration, and Coexistence

One of the top priorities in designing Novell iFolder 3.7 and later was to ensure that new iFolder services running on Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) 2.0 Linux or later can bridge the gap between the Novell iFolder 2.x services and the iFolder 3.2 services that are currently running on OES 1.0.

This section familiarizes you with the migration and upgrade capabilities of iFolder 3.8. It also discusses using the Novell Migration Tool to introduce the iFolder 3.8 services into an existing network environment without disrupting existing Novell iFolder 2.x and iFolder 3.x services.

Migration: In this section, migration means the process of moving Novell iFolder 3.2 data running on OES 1 Linux and iFolder 2.x on OES 1 Linux or on Netware to Novell iFolder 3.8.4 running on the OES 2 SP3 Linux platform.

Upgrade: Upgrade means the process of changing to a new version of iFolder on the same platform, such as from iFolder 3.2 and iFolder 3.4 on OES 1 Linux and iFolder 3.6 on OES 2 Linux to Novell iFolder 3.8.4 running on OES 2 Linux SP3.
