OES2, not until 2008

The revelation about AFP in OES2 (how did I miss that?) is the last nail. OES2 will not be rolled out to the WUF cluster until August/September 2008 at the earliest. We'll be staying on NetWare until then. We have a couple of Mac labs and at least one class track that depends on AFP support. CIFS is not an option for many reasons.

So we will be waiting until Novell catches up. In the mean time our 'utility' servers could possibly move, but there aren't many of them. The other two NDS servers, and the server that ATUS hosts their Ghost images on. We're already running OES on one of the NDS servers. The other two are the SLPDAs for our environment, and also house the DFS databases.
