Re: Moodle and Novell LDAP Authentication

Hi Joel,

I've managed to get moodle authenticating to NDS Ldap unencrypted
though.
My easyphp install needed tweaking and now nds sends variables over to
moodle to create users automagically. We're currently running it on a
windows server only because we had one readily available for thr trial.
Now on to ldaps://

Regards
Seamus

Hi Seamus,

We're using moodle at the moment. I've tried to use the ldap system as
well, but didn't have much success.
You do have to use secure ldap (unless you configure the NetWare ldap
server to allow unencrypted passwords - this is a bad idea though),
and
I believe the connection through ldaps:// is the problem here.

Are you running PHP on a windows or a Linux box? We initially set it
up
on a windows server, so I'm assuming that the Linux php support for
ldaps is much better.

RE: Moodle and Novell LDAP Authentication

Seamus,

Do you have anything else authenticating to NDS using LDAP like Apache for
example?

I have Apache working with LDAP to authenticate users to NDS and one of the
steps to making this work was to ensure each user account had a uniqueID
attribute.

Thanks.

We had to do that to get Mac OS X to work with our file servers.
We're successfully authenticating now, but i had to write some
ldapsearch/ldapmodify scripts to get them going.  Happy to share them
if anyone's interested.

I found i didn't need delaycmd.  I just unload nwtape fairly early in
the boot script, and by the time backup exec loads, it seems to be
done.  Time will tell, though.

Backup Exec 100%CPU

Hi all

I'm having a problem with my backups. Backup Exec is running on a
win2k3 server, backing up my netware servers.  They are NW6SP5.

The backup starts OK, backs up the Win server full speed, then starts
on the Netware server.  Usage on CPU 0 slowly (like in about half an
hour) climbs to 100%, and the backup speed drops to about 2 meg per
minute.

Anyone seen this?

No.

Anyone surprised?

No again.

Like Wayne says, BE is the best of a bad bunch, and that's not saying
much.  I'd love to hear of anyone who's had good reliable operation on
NW65 from *any* backup product.

Arcserve 9 on Netware 6.5

Hi All,

We have been running Arcserve 9 on our Netware 6.5 servers for around 4
months. It has been working quite well. Arcserve sits on our main file and
print server which has attached to it an IBM Ultrium 2 Autoloader. We have
another two Netware servers that have the Arcserve Backup Agents loaded. The
job is a Differential Backup that runs the full backup Tuesday night. The
job backs up all 3 servers. The last full backup backed up the data volume
of our main file and print server with the following details:

Number of Files	Amount of Data	Throughput
1,022,307		138,110,532 Kb	238,536 Kb/min

The database grows to around 850Mb before I unload Arcserve and move it. I
then copy in a blank database.

Arcserve can be a pain to get working but once it is it seems to work very
well.

Regards,

Charles Candale

I'm not running 6.5 yet, but I don't have problems with BE on NW6.0 servers provided:

I can't find the download for that, but searching for it led me to
this
http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?/10095039.htm 

Which seems to have fixed it.  Where should I be looking for that
update, is it post - SP5?

It's actually a beta release which I've discovered has just been replaced with tsa5up16. See:
