Connecting 2 netware servers

Hi,
I am new to novell. I have one netware server (6.1 SP8). Now i need to connect one more netware server. Since the existing server is running fine, i dont want to screw it by installing a new one.
Please suggest me what all things i need to take care of like
1) Can i give the same tree and context?
2) Can i give the same file server name for both the server?
3) Is it possible to create 2 trees in a netware server?
4) When connecting two servers, do i need to to have any ipx routers. Currently i want to connect both the servers to a hub. Is this fine or any problems would occur?
5) Any other points.

Please help me since i am new to novell.

-Regards

For what purpose? Replace a server? Redundancy? Other tasks?

Not sure that I follow?

Yes. A tree can contain many servers.

> 2) Can i give the same file server name for both the server?


Of course not! Server names must be unique.

> 3) Is it possible to create 2 trees in a netware server?


No, one server can only belong to one tree.

No, the servers should find each other fine.

Re: Connecting 2 netware servers

Thanks a ton for the quick reply.
Since the current server is running fine, i just dont want to disturb the existing one because of minor mistakes.
My current configurations are like this.
Netware Srv1 : Server Name - SN1, Tree - T1, Context - C1
Netware Srv2 : Server Name - SN2, Tree - T1, Contect - C1
Both are connected to the same hub. Is this configuration correct or do i need to give different tree and context names in each servers?
If i login from the client giving the T1 and C1 and not specifying the server name to which server the client logins?
If i specify the SN1 and SN2 and login it is working fine respectively.

Thanks in advance

That sounds just fine.

No, better to keep them in the same tree.

The first one that replies 🙂 It should then connect to whatever server
you have set for that user as "Preferred server"

That is to be expected.
