OES 2 SP1 mixed mode cluster

I have a 5 node cluster 4 NW 6.5 SP8,1 new OES 2 Linux SP2, and edir 8.8 SP5. I'm able to migrate NSS pools from NW to Linux as long as i have CIFS commented out of the load script. i've tried modifying the load script on the Linux node, but everytime I migrate a resource it pulls the script from edir. I thought Linux scripts were not stored in edirectory and could be edited. I know that when all nodes have been migrated that there is a cluster convert script, but I thought you could still modify the scripts until then.
Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

Re: OES 2 SP1 mixed mode cluster

It's not allowed to change the scripts/attributes on the Linux side.

If you must modify them for some reasons, you need to down the Linux nodes and edit them on the Netware side.

I thought the Linux nodes stored there own copies locally that could be edited. Linux I thought doesn't recognize the NW cifs commands.

In mixed mode, the scripts are stored in eDir as Netware scripts, but translated to Linux commands right before running on a Linux node.

Re: OES 2 SP1 mixed mode cluster

So does the Linux node translate the NW cifs commands to Linux? If Cifs is properly configured on the Linux server it should be able to load cluster resources w/cifs enable, am i correct in this assumption?

I believe so.

Re: OES 2 SP1 mixed mode cluster

CIFS in a mixed node cluster is real picky. It has to do with the timing of the volume mount and the loading of CIFS. Your best bet is to get your cluster to an all Linux OS then the CIFS issue will not be a problem.

Also watch out for the DHCP migration from a NetWare Node to an OES2 Linux node. DHCP on Linux doesn't store the lease info in eDirectory but on a file. You will need to create a volume that migrates between nodes and keep it on the linux nodes. Then migrate using the YAST migration tools.
