There is a culture clash epitomised in the book. Harris directs his writings towards a dyed in the wool NetWare sysadmin, who is now confronted with Novell's new fangled Open Enterprise Server. The Open refers to an amalgam of the closed shop NetWare with the open source world of linux and its various network utilities. More to the point, the Netware sysadmin faces a qualitatively different approach.So if trepidation is in order, Harris combats it with plenty of details as to how to transition. Not that NetWare is being abandoned, he emphasises. But the positive approach you should take is that your NetWare skillset and marketability can be enhanced by learning about OES and its linux leanings. For example, the book shows how the Apache web server and the Tomcat engine can interact with NetWare. If you do not already know those packages, now you have a context to do so. And outside NetWare, knowing Apache and Tomcat is no bad thing, career-wise.
The Novell Open Enterprise Server Administrator's Handbook: Netware Edition by Novell and Netware expert Jeffrey Harris comprehensively and accessibly covers all of the major components and features of Open Enterprise Server (OES) on the NetWare platform. This impressive and confidently recommended 600-page instructional reference book will help Novell users to understand how to integrate the benefits of OES in an existing environment. With a brief but informative introduction to the concepts necessary to introduce the diverse features, Novell users will focus on the implementation of OES on the NetWare platform.
The book is a very good book. The book is written that a novice to Novell can read and understand. It is based around both the new installation of a server, and upgrades all the way from Netware 3, back when Bindery was the in-thing. It definitely shows how benefital the Open Enterprise Server product would be. I highly recommend this book to someone who would like to know more about the new world of Netware networking.
