With the end of NetWare General Support, several anti-virus vendors will no longer publish virus definitions for NetWare servers to protect client workstations and enterprise file systems. For customers employing this type of server-side protection, dynamic server based analysis will no longer be available, but perimeter-based security for workstations and mobile devices can offset this loss of coverage. Customers are advised to speak to their anti-virus vendors to determine alternative virus protection.
Important to note is that these
same anti-virus vendors do provide a variety of methods to protect environments
on Linux. Therefore customers are advised to upgrade to Open Enterprise Server
2 SP2 as soon as possible to take advantage of ISV offerings of their
preference. Moreover, if customers run Dynamic Storage Technology for Linux
on the primary server, complete with anti-virus protection, and the only access
to the NetWare secondary is through the primary server, there is no need for
anti-virus protection on the secondary server -- the files have been scanned
before they ever hit the NetWare secondary.
Novell provides many resources and offerings to help customers upgrade. Customers and partners may visit www.novell.com/upgrade for more information.
