HP CD-ROM Server - Novell NetWare 4.x Installation

INSTALLATION AS AN NDS SERVER
If used as an NDS-compatible server, the HP CD-ROM Server must first be installed in the NDS tree, which simply involves setting the appropriate configuration parameters.
 note:
If this is the first CD-ROM Server being installed in your NDS tree, the CD-ROM Server will try to EXTEND the NDS Schema with a new attribute to the "NCP server" class. This new attribute will not affect the operation of your NetWare servers. Novell has approved this schema extension.
Adding the schema extension requires SUPERVISOR rights to the [ROOT] of the NDS tree. This means that the user in the NDSAdminName parameter must have supervisor access rights.
  • Use a Windows platform tool (such as Network Neighborhood in Windows 95 or NT 4.0) to view the directory structure. Locate the CD-ROM Server’s configuration file, which is at HPhhhhhh_NW\SYS\config\config.ini, where hhhhhh are the last six digits of the LAN hardware address.
  • Open config.ini with a text editor and enter the appropriate values in these parameters:
    For the examples below, we assume the following:
  • The name of your NDS tree is USA
  • The name of the context you wish to install the server in is Idaho.USA
  • The administrator’s name is Admin.USA
  • NDSTreeName: The name of the tree that you want to install the server into. Example: USA
  • NDSServerContext: The context in the NDS tree where you want to install the server. Example : Idaho.USA
  • NDSAdminName: Distinguished name of a user or administrator with Supervisor rights on the [ROOT] object, and Create rights in the context where you are installing the server. Example: Admin.USA
  • NDSAdminPassword: The password of the administrator entered in NDSAdminName shown above. (Once you save and exit the config.ini file the password will show up as *****)
  • NDSInstall Change this to ‘install’ when you are ready to install the server.
  • Save the config.ini file. The NDS server installation will begin 5 seconds after saving the configuration settings to the CD-ROM Server. The installation should take about 20 seconds, after which users will be able to access the CD-ROM Server using NDS mode.
  • After installation you will have to logout and then login again to have all the necessary Rights on the HP CD-ROM Server object and the associated volume. Using NetWare Administrator, you will find a new server object and corresponding volume object in the context you chose above.
     note:
    If there are any problems with the installation you can check for errors in the logfile.txt file in the CD-ROM Server’s config directory.
MOUNTING OR MAPPING NETWORK DRIVES
 note:
The examples below assume that you have not changed the NetWare server name on the CD-ROM Server. The default server name in the NetWare environment is HPhhhhhh_NW, where hhhhhh are the last six digits of the CD-ROM server LAN hardware address. If you have changed the server name, simply replace the name in our examples with the assigned name.
  • Alternatively, login scripts can be used to automate and distribute access to the CD-ROMs. To map the networked CD-ROMs, the login/map command is normally used.
  • To enable the CD-ROM Server to be seen by the NDS tree, it is necessary to change the settings within the configuration file (config.ini), as described by the beginning of this document.
WINDOWS 95 AND WINDOWS NT 4.0
  • Start the Windows Explorer from the Start/Programs Menu.
  • Expand the Network Neighborhood icon. The available resources are displayed.
  • Expand the Entire Network icon and open the NetWare networking folder.
  • Double-click the entry for your new CD-ROM server. The default entry name is HPhhhhhh_NW, where hhhhhh are the last six digits of the CD-ROM Server LAN hardware (MAC) address.
  • If using Bindery Mode you will be prompted to enter your user name and password, unless you are already logged in. Before the CD-ROM Server has been set up, all users have full access to it.
  • Once you are logged in to the CD-ROM Server, expand the SYS and cd folder to display all the resources.
  • To map the CD-ROM Server to a drive letter, right-click one of the following CD-ROM Server resources.
  • For root level access, right-click SYS.
  • For cd folder access, right-click the cd folder.
  • For CD-ROM access, right-click the CD-ROM to access.
  • If you do not wish to map the CD-ROM server to a drive letter, just continue to explore the CD-ROM server until the file you need is found.
  • From the pop-up menu, select Map Network Drive….
  • Select a drive letter for your CD-ROM Server.
  • Check Reconnect at logon to use the CD-ROM Server under the same drive letter the next time you start your computer.
  • Choose the OK button. The CD-Rom Server is ready for use.
WINDOWS FOR WORKGROUPS
  • Start the File Manager.
  • From the Disk menu, select Connect Network Drive… If you also have Microsoft Network installed, you may have to choose the button labeled ‘NetWare…’ to display the screen.
  • Choose the Select NetWare Connection button on the toolbar.
  • Select the entry for your new CD-Rom Server. The default entry name is HPhhhhhh_NW, where hhhhhh are the last six digits of the CD-ROM Server LAN hardware (MAC) address.
  • Choose the Login button.
  • If using Bindery Mode you will be prompted to enter your user name and password, unless you are already logged in. Before the CD-ROM Server has been set up, all users have full access to it.
  • Once logged in to the CD-ROM Server, choose the Drive Connections button on the toolbar.
  • Double-click HPhhhhhh_NW\SYS and then the CD folder to display the Resources list.
  • Select a drive letter in the Drives listing and then:
  • For root level access, select HPhhhhhh_NW_SYS in the Resources list.
  • For CD-folder access, select the CD folder in the Resources list.
  • For CD-ROM access, select the CD-ROM you want to access in the Resource list.
  • Choose Map to map the CD-ROM Server to the selected drive letter.
  • Choose Permanent if you wish to use the CD-ROM Server under the same drive letter the next time you start your computer.
  • Choose the Exit button on the toolbar. The CD-ROM Server is ready for use.
DOS
The CD-ROM Server is mounted using the map command.
  • Use the map command to mount the CD-ROM Server. At the DOS prompt of a NetWare file server, type:
    map root <drive letter>:=HPhhhhhh_NW/<path>:
    where hhhhhh are the last six digits of your CD-ROM Server LAN hardware (MAC) address and <path> is the path to a CD-ROM Server folder, or a file on a CD-ROM.
Example (root level access)
  • To access the root level of your CD-ROM Server with LAN hardware address 0060b0cd000b under the drive letter E, type:
  • map root E:=HPcd000b_NW/SYS:
Example (cd folder access)
  • If your CD-ROM Server LAN hardware address is 0060b0cd000b, and you want to be able to access all the CD-ROMS under the drive letter F, type:
  • map root F:=HPcd000b_NW/SYS:/CD
Example (CD-ROM access)
  • If your CD-ROM server LAN hardware address is 0060b0cd000b, and you want to map a CD-ROM named cd_18881 to drive G, type:
  • map root G:=HPcdd000b_NW/SYS:/CD/cd_18881
  • To make the connections permanent, edit your autoexec.bat file to include your map commands.
