MAS 90 on Open Enterprise Server 2 Linux?

MAS 90 on Open Enterprise Server 2 Linux?


We are a medium-sized company (about 25 users) currently running off a single OES (NetWare 6.5) server. Since NetWare is on its way out, and we have been having some issues with this server, I would really like to shift to a better (and more future-proof) platform.

The major limiting factor MAS 90. I looked at the "compatability matrix" they had on the website, which was last updated a year ago, and it says that it supports NetWare 6.5 and Open Enterprise Server Service Pack 1. This is a little vague, since OES comes with either the Netware 6.5 or the SUSE Linux kernel. And it makes no mention of OES2.

Does anyone know whether the Linux version of OES is compatible with MAS 90? If so, are there any configuration issues I should be aware of? If possible, I'd like to stay away from getting a Windows server just for the sake of MAS90.


RE: MAS 90 on Open Enterprise Server 2 Linux?

Thanks for the quick response. I had gotten my hopes up, because the supported platform matrix listed the Novell products like this:

Novell Open Enterprise Server
Service Pack 1
Service Pack 2

Novell NetWare 6.5
Novell Small Business Suite 6.5
Support Pack 4 (SP4) or Support Pack 6 (SP6) or Support Pack 7 (SP7)

Novell NetWare 6.0
Novell Small Business Suite 6.0
Support Pack 1 (nw6sp1.exe) or higher

I was hoping that it supported both versions of OES, not just the NetWare one, but I guess not.
