HP CD-ROM Server for Ethernet Networks - Installing the CD-ROM Server with NDS
How to install the HP CD-ROM Server with NDS.
Connect the HP CD-ROM Server to the network and power it up.
Access the configuration either by editing the CONFIG.INI file or by using a web browser. See Chapter 5, "CD-ROM Server Configuration" in the User’s Guide for instructions for these tools.
Fill in the following configuration information:NDS ENABLE = YESNDS TREENAME = DCO (using the example information above)NDS SERVER CONTEXT = OU.DCO.HP (using the example information above)NDS ADMIN NAME = ADMIN.OU.DCO.HP (using the example information above)NDS ADMIN PASSWORD = *****
note:The first time you enter the password, it will be visible.NDS INSTALL = install (choices are "no", "install", and "forced"; choosing "forced" deletes any previous objects associated with that server)
Save and activate the configuration changes. (See the section "Configuration Using a Text Editor" in the User’s guide). Several minutes after the configuration changes take effect, the server should be installed and visible in the NDS tree.
Verify proper installation by running NWADMIN. The server should appear as a NetWare NDS Fileserver. Examine the properties in NWADMIN; the server status should be "UP".
If the server does not appear in the NDS tree, or if it appears but the status is "DOWN" or "UNKNOWN," check the LOGFILE.TXT in the same directory as CONFIG.INI. The logfile will contain useful error messages when an NDS installation fails. Refer to the "NetWare NDS Installation Errors" section in the appendix of the User’s Guide for information and troubleshooting NDS installation errors.
The first time an HP CD-ROM Server is installed in an NDS tree, it must be installed using the account of the Admin object that has supervisor rights to the root object of the tree. This is necessary in order to extend the NDS schema, to allow the NDS tree to store information about the server, such as NDS access rights. Once this HP CD-ROM Server has already been successfully installed using this procedure, any future re-installations can be done using the Admin object for the tree in which the server will reside. When entering the NDS information in the CONFIG.INI file for the CD-ROM Server, you must use either the Relative Distinguished Typefull or Relative Distinguished Typless notation. Some examples are:
Relative Distinguished Typefull notation:
Relative Distinguished Typeless notation:
caution:You cannot use Distinguished Typeless or Distinguished Typefull notation. Some examples are:Distinguished Typefull notation:.CN=ADMIN.OU=DCO.O=HPDistinguished Typeless notation:.ADMIN.OU.DCO.HP
