What release of openslp supports isDABackup

Hi everyone.

I´m working on a migration from NW6.5SP8 (+PostSP8, incl FTF slp). to OES 11 SP1/SLES 11 SP1.

I´m working with the ISOs downloaded from download.novell.com. I'm trying to get openslp to do the Backup through the settings net.slp.isDABackup = true, net.slp.DABackupInterval = 900, net.slp.DASyncReg = true. I do not see the /etc/slp.reg..d/slpd/DABackup folder getting created.

These are my openslp rpms, as they come out-of-box

vslccs02-idm:/etc # rpm -qa | grep openslp
openslp-1.2.0-172.11.16
openslp-server-1.2.0-172.11.16
openslp-32bit-1.2.0-172.11.16

This is my /etc/slp.reg.d/ folder .
vslccs02-idm:/etc/slp.reg.d # ls
ntp.reg samba.reg ssh.reg vnc.reg
vslccs02-idm:/etc/slp.reg.d #

What's the minimum rpm release of openSLP enabling the "isDABackup = true" to work? Does The dabackup folder need to be created before? Who needs rights to it and what are they? if it's the case.

I know there a couple of new releases for openSLP posted on the web. I´ve seen presentations stating about this folder and the backup procedure. They talk about OES 2 SP3. Was OES 11 released before OES2 SP3 was ready and committed? Therefore it's understandable the rpms are up-to-date on OES2 SP3 and need to be applied to OES11.

Thank you in advanced!

Are you using the provided migration tools (miggui)?

This should all work for OES11 - it's documented @
http://www.novell.com/documentation/oes11/oes_implement_lx/data/slp.html

OES11 is an add-on for SLES11 SP1 which includes the openslp RPMs you
referenced above. It was released after OES2 SP3.

Thank you for replying.

Are you using the provided migration tools (miggui)?
No I´m not. We´ll be migrating a NetWare farm of about 50 servers, including NCS. We are starting by adding an OES11 server as part of the Master DS servers. The plan is to make it DS Masters, OpenSLP DA, CA, LDAP Master Server... We don't plan to use miggui for the DS servers.

What if this were not a migration but a fresh eDir/OES/SLES new Install? I believe the folder should be created as stated in the Documentation... Yes... things don´t always work the way one would hope...

I read the Appnote "Migrate NetWare SLPDA to OES2 OpenSLP" and it's pretty much the scenario we are handling (Scenario #1) .

As of right now, the OEs 11 DA gets registered within the scope, I can see it in C1, SLP Scope, I can see the services with the slptool command line, but planning ahead I will need that "cache" when the server or the service is restarted, especially for all those Win7 clients there will be pretty soon... about 500 Win7 boxes...


This should all work for OES11 - it's documented @
Novell Doc: OES 11: Planning and Implementation Guide - SLP

Yes it should. This why I find it strange it's not even commented in the slp.conf, or the backup folder does not get created with the setting active within the slp.conf file.

OES11 is an add-on for SLES11 SP1 which includes the openslp RPMs you
referenced above. It was released after OES2 SP3.

Since I´m still in a lab phase I´ll download and install the patch for openslp posted on the SLES 11 SP1 (openslp-server-1.2.0-172.22.1.x86_64.rpm) openslp 5552.

Just did this... DABackup is created ... with today's date and time... I´ll wait those 15 minutes and chek back...

I sure would like to know what's going on?.

Any extra thoughts

Ok.
