iFolder install to NSS volume

I'll preface this request by stating up front that this is my first attempt to set up a linux server. All my other servers are on Netware 6.5. Be prepared for me not to understand the simplest things.

I've now managed to get my OES-linux server up and running and the basics all seem to be working. I now need to know the best way to go about installing iFolder on this server with the iFolder repository being located on the NSS volume I created. Can anyone point me to the instructions I should be following to accomplish this? Thank you.

Re: iFolder install to NSS volume

I start the software installer and get presented with a list of software available for installation. This list includes:

ifolder3-enterprise (x86_64)
ifolder3-clients (x86_64)
ifolder3-tsa (i586)
iftop (x86_64)

Should all of these be installed? Is iftop related to ifolder and, if so, what is it? Thanks.

If you're installing iFolder on an OES Linux server then you should
simply select the iFolder OES component which will ensure the correct
packages then get installed.

Are you doing/seeing something different?

Which version of OES are you using? OES2 SP3 (on SLES10 SP4) is the
latest version.

So if I understand what you're saying, I should just select ifolder3-enterprise (x86_64)

Are you doing/seeing something different?
I go to Computer and choose Install Software. After a minute I get presented with a list of about 100 packages available to install. When I scroll down, I find the four listed above.

Which version of OES are you using? OES2 SP3 (on SLES10 SP4) is the

Yes, oes2sp3 on sles10sp4.

No that's not what I meant.

So you're using the GUI. Firstly be aware that Computer > Install
Software is probably not the right thing to do* (I've never used it and
trying this now I'm getting odd results).

Underneath the list of packages click 'Pattern' where it says 'Types:
All Pattern Package Patch'. Then tick the box next to novell-folder
before clicking the [Install] button.

*Personally I would use Computer > YaST then choose Software > Software
Management. Next to Filter: click Search and choose Patterns from the
drop-down list. Then tick the box next to Novell iFolder in the list of
Patterns in the left-hand pane (listed under OES Services).

Fortunately OES11 (on SLES11 SP1) currently in beta fixes Computer >
Install Software to use YaST.

Re: iFolder install to NSS volume

For iFolder and OES2, I think you want to use the instructions in the docs:

Re: iFolder install to NSS volume

And since you want to use NSS, pay special attention to section 6.2.1, Step 1

Re: iFolder install to NSS volume

I started reading the Admin documentation on client management. I go to log in the the WebAdmin interface and no username/password combination I use seems
to work. I know that in some contexts, at least, the user name and password are correct. How do I go about getting this straightened out? I'm sure it's something
really dumb that I've done. I just don't know what.
