Changes to this guide are summarized in a Documentation Updates appendix at the end of this guide. The lack of such an appendix indicates that no changes have been made since the initial product release.
The OES 2 SP3: Getting Started with OES 2 and Virtualized NetWare is the hands-on counterpart to this guide and helps network administrators:
Set up a basic lab with an OES 2 server, a virtualized NetWare server, a test tree, and user objects that represent the different types of users in OES 2.
Use the exercises in the guide to explore how OES 2 services work.
Continue exploring to gain a sound understanding of how OES 2 can benefit their organization.
Additional documentation is also found on the OES 2 Documentation Web site.
The terms OES 2, and OES 2 SP1, SP2, and SP3 are all used in this guide. A support pack is mentioned to differentiate something that is new or changed in that support pack release of OES 2. All statements that refer to OES 2 also apply to OES 2 SP3 (the latest support pack) unless otherwise indicated.
In this documentation, a greater-than symbol (>) is used to separate actions within a step and items within a cross-reference path.
When a single pathname can be written with a backslash for some platforms, or a forward slash for other platforms, the pathname is presented with a forward slash to reflect the Linux* convention. Users of platforms that require a backslash, such as NetWare, should use backslashes as required by the software.
