Running Web Services using Apache
I would like to run NetStorage and GroupWise WebAccess for outside
users. I want my outside users to hit [url]http://myipaddress[/url] and see the
NetWare WebAccess page. From there, users should be able to use
gadgets to get to NetStorage and GroupWise WebAccess.
I'm running NetWare 6 and want to use the versions of Apache and
Tomcat that come with the installation cd.
I am having trouble knowing how to configure the eDirectory webaccess
objects and apache configuration files.
Does anyone know of documentation describing this kind of setup?
Re: Running Web Services using Apache
I have had very mixed results with is. When it works, it does so
straight "out of the box". When it doesn't, it's a nightmare to fix. I
run both the services you want but on separate servers.
If you want an easier like do not install IPrint on the same server as
Netstorage. (All the ports will be changed).
By far the best way to install Netstorage is as part of a new server
install. Everything, Apache, Tomcat etc. is installed & configured for
you & can accept the all the defaults & it should (& does) work.
HOWEVER, you MUST have a root server certificate installed in your tree
& SSL & all the PKI stuff must be installed & working properly on the
Netstorage server. Run PKIDIAG.NLM & check. You will also need to have
LDAP installed & working & LDAP needs to have clear text passwords
enabled. (LDAP is how Apache authenticates to NDS).
Groupwise webaccess is another story altogether. It is easier than
Netstorage to configure & get working but it really needs to run on a
different IP address to Netstorage (unless you are happy for Netstorage
to sit on port 51080 instead of port 80). You will also need to set up
the agent on the GW server & run the browser stuff on a different
server. You will find it very awkward to configure webacess & Netstorage
on the same box. The installs for both assume that they are using the
primary server IP address &, whilst it's not impossible to get
Netstorage to run a secondary IP address, it takes a lot of configuring
& a good deal of luck.
If you must run both on the same box, install Netstorage first & get it
working then try to install the webaccess web components separately
using a secondary IP address. Be sure to have a backup of all the web
folders in sys: before you install webaccess. It might over-write some
of the Apache conf files
The documentation @ [url]www.novell.com/documentation[/url] for both Netstorage &
Webaccess are good but I don't think you will find anything about
installing them both of the same box. This simply isn't how Novell see
them running. There are several very good TIDs that explain how
Netstorage works, but they are not for the faint-hearted.
Best of luck. You are going to need it!
