Netstorage disabling/uninstalling

We are transitioning to Filr for WebDAV and remote access. I would
like to do a 2 step process to phase out Netstorage. First I just
want to disable (turn off) Netstorage (so I can turn it back on if
needed). Once I am sure that everything is running properly on Filr,
I will want to uninstall Netstorage. Disable and uninstall
instructions are not provided in the docs. Anyone know how to do
this?

Disabling, you can simply stop the netstorage processes:
/etc/init.d/novell-tomcat5 stop
/etc/init.d/apache2 stop
/etc/init.d/novell-xsrvd stop

(note though, that if you have other things on that server like iManager, or iPrint, that you'll need to keep apache and tomcat running, else they all break). So you may not be able to actually disable it, short of the last item.

I believe you *may* be able to use Yast -> OES Install and Configuration and find the NetStorage pattern and remove it, but you could alternatively uninstall the rpm's. I don't know which rpm's are required (I would probably look at the pattern in yast and on the lower bottom corner is the file listing I believe).

iManager and iPrint running here also, so can't stop those. I might
just stop novell-xsrvd though. After posting I also remembered that
NetStorage is only being accessed from outside our LAN. So I may just
kill access at the firewall by disabling the rule for that service.
That would make it easy.

I'll look into that. This server is still physical, so I can't
snapshot and roll back if I screw it up. I want to make sure I'm
doing it right the first time around. 🙂 I also commented on the
docs asking Novell to add uninstall information.

Thanks!

What about leaving the NetStorage installation and configuration as it
is and simply configure an apache redirect to your new and fancy Filr site?
RewriteRule ^/.*$ https://myfilr.site
There are more fancy and less brute ways to do this, but you get the
idea probably.

Good idea...but for now I just disabled the firewall rule.
