Description

Building a Base for Secure Universal Access

The information systems of an enterprise providing universal access to employees, customers, and business partners have broad visibility and exposure. When systems supporting widely accessed applications fail, they can cause more than just a costly disruption of operations. The failure can affect the company's image, potentially impacting sales and revenue.

With this in mind, IBM designed OS/2 Warp Server for e-business to make OS/2 Warp Server even more robust. To eliminate lengthy file system recovery times after a system crash with current file systems, OS/2 Warp Server for e-business includes a JFS. Using database journaling techniques, JFS generally can restore a file system to a functional state in a matter of seconds or minutes. In contrast to a non-journaling file system, OS/2 Warp Server for e-business's JFS provides a quickly-restarted, transaction-oriented, log-based, scalable file system. JFS is key to helping improve server availability.

The performance and reliability that JFS provides makes OS/2 Warp Server for e-business ideal for Web serving. Furthermore, JFS raises the previous file size limitation of 2 GB to 2 TB. Partition size is raised from 64 GB to 2 TB, allowing a file to be the same size as a partition.

Keeping systems available and costs low involves enterprise system management. OS/2 Warp Server for e-business includes Tivoli's Lightweight Client Framework (LCF) Endpoint Agent for OS/2. LCF in the Tivoli Framework 3.2 architecture increases the number of resources that a Tivoli Management Environment™ can deal with at the same time, and helps increase efficiency. Tivoli Framework LCF supports OS/2 as an end point for TCP/IP. The LCF end-point agent for OS/2 makes OS/2 Warp Server for e-business "Tivoli Ready".

While server availability is critical to universal access, the other half of the equation, namely the clients, is also important. The latest level of Netfinity Manager and Client Services, Netfinity 5.2, including the OS/2 Warp Server for e-business, gives network administrators the visibility and capabilities they need to initiate and manage services for LAN-connected clients and servers. Netfinity for OS/2 is an ideal solution for departmental server/client management. Enabling business data to be shared horizontally across the enterprise helps increase its value. OS/2 Warp Server for e-business delivers cost-effective ways to manage information interdepartmentally, company wide or using the Web. With NFS, a feature included with OS/2 Warp Server for e-business, a RISC (AIX®/UNIX®) drive can be mounted and made a shared resource to OS/2 Warp Server's clients. OS/2 Warp Server for e-business is Year 2000 ready and EuroReady.

The LVM in OS/2 Warp Server for e-business will make it easier to manage dynamic DASD requirements. Logical drives can now span multiple, physical hard drives. With permanent or sticky drive letter assignments, hard drives can be moved or added without changing their drive letter designation. Partitions can grow without reformatting.

OS/2 Warp Server for e-business comfortably integrates into heterogeneous server environments with its ability to manage NT 4.0 servers; helping to eliminate many redundant maintenance tasks. Adding Windows NT Server management capability gives administrators the ability to create, update, and delete user accounts, passwords, and groups using an easy-to-use graphical interface or a rich command line interface. The user account and group information can be synchronized seamlessly with Windows NT 4.0 servers in the OS/2 Warp Server domain. In addition, end users only need to logon to one server to access all shared resources within the domain — files, applications, and printers — rather than entering multiple IDs and passwords to access information on different server network operating system platforms.

A typical scenario would have OS/2 Warp Server for e-business as the primary domain controller where user accounts, passwords, and some applications reside. Other servers in the network would host (or serve) applications such as databases or transaction software. One or more servers would also host (or serve) Windows NT for file/print and Win32 applications. End users can now have universal access through a single OS/2 Warp Server domain to all:

  • Servers
  • Files
  • Printers
  • Applications

The flow of user account data is unidirectional, from the OS/2 Warp Server for e-business domain to the NT additional server. Managing user and group accounts at the OS/2 Warp Server for e-business domain controller, with dynamic updates on the NT additional server, eases the network administrator's workload. Where needed, administrators may configure persistent user accounts and groups that remain unique on either the NT server or OS/2 Warp Server for e-business server.

With DDNS for Windows 95 and NT Clients, administrators no longer have to worry about the addresses for their Windows 95 and Windows NT clients. These DDNS clients bring added security to network clients and more importantly, to remote laptop users. Windows clients now have the same DDNS support administrators have relied on for managing OS/2 Warp, WorkSpace On-Demand, and AIX clients.

DHCP allows a user to change locations within a network and dynamically get an IP address that works for that new location. DHCP will even assign the user the closest printer. As a side note, for customers that do not want to put this additional DDNS code on client workstations, DHCP proxy support allows network administrators to get the labor saving benefits of Dynamic IP on any industry-standard DHCP client.

Dynamic IP allows users to just use the host name no matter how much movement there is around the network. Users are no longer encumbered with having to remember addresses for their colleagues or their printers. It's done automatically. The DDNS client dynamically changes the host-name-to-IP address mappings and provides additional security beyond the DDNS Proxy, which brings Dynamic IP capabilities to any DHCP client in the industry.

For responding to future business needs or retrofitting old programs for universal access, OS/2 Warp Server for e-business comes with two toolkits designed for e-business. OS/2 Warp Developers Kit for Java 1.1.7 delivers a full implementation of Sun's Java Development Kit.

OS/2 Warp Server for e-business also supports the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), a standards-based Internet directory protocol. The OS/2 LDAP Version  3 Client Toolkit for C and Java Version 1.0 is for C and Java programmers who want to enable new or existing applications to access, search, and update LDAP servers, using LDAP Version 2 or 3 protocols.

This toolkit provides TCP/IP access to directories that support the LDAP protocol including X.500 directories. The OS/2 LDAP Version 3 Client Toolkit for C and Java Version 1.0 includes various sample LDAP client programs and an LDAP client library used to provide programmatic access to the LDAP protocol. The LDAP toolkit for C programmers supports connections established using a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) interface. This can be used to provide data encryption of LDAP messages that flow between the LDAP client and server.

OS/2 Warp Server for e-business brings enhancements to OS/2 Warp Server V4 together into a single, CD-media package. Current OS/2 Warp Server V4.0 FixPaks and current OS/2 Warp Server V4.0 Software Choice features are rolled into OS/2 Warp Server for e-business, including:

  • Year 2000 and euro currency readiness
  • Java and Netscape
  • Improved TCP/IP

OS/2 Warp Server for e-business also includes:

  • Netfinity V5.2
  • LDAP Client
  • Dynamic IP Client for Win95 and NT
  • OS/2 Warp Server Backup/Restore V6.0.

The Security Package that can be ordered separately enables up to 128-bit data encryption to meet high-security customer requirements (contains U.S. regulated cryptography). The 386 HPFS Upgrade package provides a high-performance file system for print and file applications.

The new high-performance JFS delivers exceptional server reliability. Seamless Windows NT Server Management, which allows Windows NT 4.0 servers to be seamlessly integrated into a network, fortifies OS/2 Warp Server for e-business's capability in mixed environments.

What this adds up to is a powerful mission-critical foundation for the e-business transformation. The OS/2 Warp Server for e-business features are designed to meet the more rigorous performance and availability requirements of universal access. It can facilitate the transition to network computing and the Java Application Model with the Java and LDAP toolkits. Yet its support of existing OS/2 applications and eased administration of Windows platforms can help preserve existing investments. And most definitely, it is the optimum platform for WorkSpace On-Demand — IBM's proven product for helping:

  • Reduce cost of ownership
  • Speed deployment of new applications
  • Transition to network computing

OS/2 Warp Server for e-business is an exceptional Intel-based server providing a comprehensive computing infrastructure that meets today's and tomorrow's demanding requirements.

Planning Information

Performance Considerations: With the new Journaled File System (JFS) and the continued availability of the 386 High Performance File System (386 HPFS), customers now have the ability of choosing the file system that best meets their performance requirements. JFS serves well in an application server environment. The expanded partition and file size support (up to 2 TB), quick recovery from a failure, and the scalability on a multiprocessor system make this an ideal file system in CPU intensive, application serving installations. If the file system requirement is to support a file and print serving environment than the 386 HPFS upgrade should be considered. If both file and print serving and application serving is needed then separate partitions could be allocated to each file system (JFS and 386 HPFS) thus enabling multiserver functionality on a single, physical system.

To obtain the right to install a previously released OS/2 server product (Warp Server 4.0, or Warp Server 4.0 Advanced), a customer must:

  1. Already own the previous version media or purchase a media pack through Passport Advantage.
  2. Purchase the appropriate licenses within the OS/2 Warp Server for e-business product offerings for each new installation.
    • To obtain the right to install Warp Server 4.0, a customer can:
      1. Within Passport Advantage: purchase an OS/2 Warp Server for e-business license.
      2. Outside Passport Advantage: purchase an OS/2 Warp Server for e-business Use Authorization (formerly called Additional License).
    • To obtain the right to install Warp Server 4.0 Advanced, a customer can:
      1. Within Passport Advantage: purchase an OS/2 Warp Server for e-business license PLUS purchase a 386 HPFS Upgrade for OS/2 Warp Server for e-business license.
      2. Outside Passport Advantage: purchase an OS/2 Warp Server for e-business Use Authorization (formerly called Additional License) PLUS purchase a 386 HPFS Upgrade for OS/2 Warp Server for e-business Use Authorization (formerly called Additional License).

If a customer situation warrants the need for an earlier version of OS/2 server (prior to OS/2 WARP Server 4.0), this must be addressed through the special bids process.

To purchase additional registered users for previous OS/2 server versions, customers should purchase OS/2 Warp Server for e-business Registered Users. Each OS/2 Warp Server for e-business Registered User is entitled to access any OS/2 server in the enterprise.
