Netware 3.12 | Applications |

General Information

The Netware 3.12 operating system has been superceded by versions 4.x and 5.x.

Netware is a network operating system made by Novell Inc. Data and authentication information is stored on the server. The server validates a Client during the initial login operation. A client is permitted to use only those services which the network administrator has authorized.

Administrators can obtain a Certified Novell Administrator (CNA) certificate after passing a test. Further, the Certified Novell Engineer (CNE) certification is given to users that pass a set of 7 tests.

Netware supports both Duplexing and mirroring.

Disk Duplexing

Disk Duplexing is accomplished by installing a second disk interface controller card. The disk driver must also be loaded a second time with its own IRQ and port settings. Netware will use the disk controller driver re-entrantly which will in essence use the same disk driver but keep two distinct operations going for each card.

A drives is activated by issuing the

load driver_name


There is an improvement in disk Read performance with Duplexing since both interface cards can perform read operations simultaneously.

Disk Mirroring

Disk Mirroring uses a single disk drive interface card connected to two hard drives. All data is written to both drives allowing the first drive to be mirrored onto the second drive. A failure in the interface card will result in both drives being unusable. The data is secure on the second drive and can be used after the failed drive is replaced.
