Java Mgt Console

Running OES11.0 with DHCP server. Last June I posted that the java mgt utility did not properly display the running of the OES DHCP servers at the bottom of the page. Even though DHCP was up and running the icons for the DHCP server at the bottom were always displayed with the big X and not running.

Well, Novell just released their April maintenance and low and behold there is a fix for just that.

So, I downloaded the java mgt rpm and used 7-zip to extract it.

Works 50% now. I have two DHCP servers using the peer failover protocol. One server now shows up and running. The other still has the big X and shows not running. Even though they are both running fine.

Come on Novell your almost there. Just one more to go. :))

You might want to look at upgrading your servers to OES11 SP1 as it
looks like the DNS/DHCP Java Console in the April 2013 Scheduled
Maintenance patch for OES11 SP1 contains later code than the version
included in the patch for OES11. It certainly differs slightly in size
(it's bigger).

Not only that but OES11 will no longer be supported from 28-Aug-2013
(one year after OES11 SP1 was released).

Hey Simon,

Where did you get the support drop dead date of 28 Aug 2013. I'm looking on Novell's Life Cycle page and it claims OES 11 is good until 13 Dec 2016.

That's OES11 in general. But old support packs go unsupported earlier.

As Massimo suggested, when I said OES11 I meant OES11 the specific
version (OES11 SP0) and not OES11 the product.

Whilst the Product Support Lifecycle page lists the date that General
(Support) Ends for OES11 as 13 Dec 2016 the devil is in the details -
you'll note that when clicking "Open Enterprise Server 11 (OES 11)" in
that list you get a list of Service Pack Releases but with a note above
"Click here for detailed information on the Open Enterprise Server
support pack policy."

If you click "here" you get
http://support.novell.com/products/openenterpriseserver/support-pack-policy.html
which notes "Novell provides defect support for Open Enterprise Server
support packs for one year after the release date of the following
support pack." Since the FCS date for OES11 SP1 was 28 Aug 2012 defect
support for OES11 ends on 28 Aug 2013.

And, please note this is a rather theoretical and unfortunate date. It
is true for OES, the addon. However, OES without SP runs exclusively on
top of SLES11 SP1, which *IS* already out of support. So while you may
still get support for OES components of OES11 FCS, you will *not* get
support, nor any more pathces for the core SLES OS underneath it. So as
a matter of fact, leaving out the theory, OES11 FCS is factually
unsupported and insecure as of today, and nobody should run it any more.

Ah yes Massimo good point!

Perhaps it's no coincidence that OES11 SP1 was released on 28 Aug 2012,
the day after general support for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1
ended (six months after SLES11 SP2 was released on 27 Feb 2012).

Support for SLES11SP1 was extended beyond that usual 6 month after
release of the following SP because OES11 SP1 got delayed several times.

I thought that was only for Novell customers running OES11 and not
SLES11 SP1 generally.

In terms of patches, that's hard to do, as they're the exactly same
patch channels. And SLES11SP1 received patches much longer than it
originally would have.
