In this book we provide you with an overview of Novell's high-availability solutions. We cover Novell Cluster Services (NCS) for Open Enterprise Server for both NetWare and Linux. We focus on the latest release of this software, but most information from this book is applicable to older versions of NCS as well. Our goal with this book is to give you a full overview of the process of designing and implementing a cluster. We provide insight into additional technologies such as iSCSI, Linux Heartbeat clustering, and Business Continuity Clustering. We also describe how to install popular applications into your cluster environment. In this book we have tried to go beyond the information provided in the online documentation. We not only describe how to configure NCS clusters, but also pay a good deal of attention to the "why" part of the configuration of a cluster because we would like you to understand what you are doing as well. This book is written for two different audiences. Administrators new to administering NCS, or clustering at all, will find enough information to get themselves going with Novell Cluster Services. And administrators who do already have experience configuring Novell Cluster Services will find that lots of details are included, especially on how to configure NCS on Linux servers.
