Novell iFolder 3.7
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Support Pack 1


There are two options available for configuring iFolder 3.7. 
The first is used when OES2 is installed, and iFolder 3.7 is selected as an installation product.  This method uses YAST to configure iFolder 3.7 and create the data-store if needed.  This tool may be run later if needed to reconfigure iFolder.
The second option is to run /opt/novell/iFolder3/bin/simias-server-setup , a command line tool which will configure iFolder 3.7 and create the data-store if needed.


The recommended method for configuring iFolder 3.7 is to use YAST.  This is done by running yast2 novell-ifolder3 from the command line on a SLES 10 OES2 server.  Although both methods are supported configuration methods, the yast option is less susceptible to errors, and gives the person configuring iFolder the ability view and modify the configuration information without having to restart the entire configuration process if a value is incorrectly entered.  It also verifies that the admin user provided can log into the tree.
