OS/2 WARP SERVER, VERSION 4

OS/2 Warp Server, Version 4 contains the following major components and functions:



OS/2 Warp Version 3.0

OS/2 Warp Version 3, now available with OS/2 Warp Server, Version 4, continues the OS/2 tradition of providing 32-bit OS/2, DOS, and Windows software support, enabling you to take full advantage of the power of your PC while preserving your investment in application programs. As a stable, mature platform, OS/2 Warp is positioned to set the standard for ease-of-use and productivity in the worldwide PC industry.



File and Print Sharing Services

OS/2 Warp Server, Version 4 provides the resource sharing capabilities that you would expect in a world-class network operating system. Its industry-leading performance allows you to easily support your department or your entire company. OS/2 Warp Server allows your clients (DOS, Windows, OS/2 Warp, Windows 95, Windows NT) to transparently access network files and printers.

OS/2 Warp Server's enhanced GUI allows your LAN administrators, whether at a central site or in the department, to tailor and manage your network resources as easily as dragging and dropping an icon.

NetWare File and Print Gateway: The OS/2 Warp Server NetWare Client for OS/2 Version 2.11 acts as a NetWare File and Print Gateway so that OS/2 Warp Server clients can use OS/2 Warp Server to access NetWare servers even if they are not running with the NetWare LAN protocols.

The NetWare Client for OS/2:

NetWare Client for OS/2 includes the following utility programs:



Simple Integrated Installation

Getting started with OS/2 Warp Server has never been easier. OS/2 Warp Server's wide-ranging functionality is derived from many components, which, in previous environments, represented individual products with individual installations. In OS/2 Warp Server, all those major functions have been combined within a single, newly designed install shell that presents a consistent approach. It is targeted for the novice or experienced user. Among the features of the install process are:

The design objective of OS/2 Warp Server is that it be intuitively easy to install and use. All components have been designed (and in some cases re-designed) to conform to the latest IBM standards for end-user consistency and clarity. Initial reaction from some beta users confirms that the objectives have been achieved.

OS/2 Warp Server provides the platform upon which the IBM Software Servers for OS/2 Warp are installed. The key advantage that OS/2 Warp Server provides over existing LAN server products is the integrated installation of the Software Servers such as the Communications Server, Database Server, Internet Connection Server, and Transaction Server.



Remote Access Services

The Remote Access Services provided in OS/2 Warp Server extend the "Office LAN" to remote users. Using dial connections (asynchronous, synchronous, ISDN, or X.25 PAD), remote users can access LAN (Ethernet or token-ring) resources as if they were physically connected to the LAN.

The server capabilities provide the security and routing functions for the Remote Access Clients. Support is provided for LAN workstations to dial off the LAN and connect to Remote Access Clients, to another OS/2 Warp Server, or to a LAN Distance(TM) Connection Server Version 1.1. The Remote Access Services support multiple simultaneous remote connections. The number of connections depends on the PC hardware, communications adapter, and type of remote connectivity. For example, using four Star Gate Avanstar 200 Asynchronous Communications Adapters in a 486 66MHz PC, up to 64 simultaneous asynchronous communications sessions can be supported.

Provided with OS/2 Warp Server are two Remote Access Clients that allow an OS/2- or Windows-based client to dial into the LAN and access network resources. These Remote Access Clients provide transparent access for most LAN applications.

In addition, the Remote Access Clients allow one Remote Access Client workstation to connect to another Remote Access Client workstation and establish a virtual LAN. This could be used to allow file and print sharing between two workstations using peer networking products such as OS/2 Warp Connect Peer services or Artisoft LANtastic.



Systems Management Services

A comprehensive set of systems management functions for the PC environment, which includes SystemView, is provided to help lower the cost of systems ownership. Key functions are:

Benefits that contribute to the success of a company's business include: In detail, the following functions are available for OS/2 2.1, or later, Windows 3.1, Windows 3.11, and Windows for Workgroups:



Enhanced Communications including TCP/IP -- Dynamic IP

OS/2 Warp Server is supported by a significantly enhanced communications subsystem known as Adapters and Protocols Services, which consists of four parts:

The CID Utilities are the same as those provided in previous LAN server transports. Adapter driver support is constantly being extended. Other vendors' adapters certified for conformity to the NDIS interface are supported either with drivers shipped with the transport or provided by the vendor. To obtain a list of supported adapters from CompuServe or the Internet, refer to Compatibility.

For protocol support, NetBIOS continues to be available. Also, the BSD 4.3 Sockets API and associated TCP/IP protocol are included for users who require the many public domain applications available or who want to gradually migrate to TCP/IP networks. New applications can be written to this 32-bit Sockets API and used natively on TCP/IP or NetBIOS networks, both LANs and WANs. TCP/IP Services is further dramatically enhanced by the introduction of "Dynamic IP."

TCP/IP support is provided for Internet's request for comment (RFC) 1001/1002, which allows the use of NetBIOS applications -- including File and Print Sharing Services and OS/2 File and Print Client -- over TCP/IP. Users may, therefore, change their LANs to TCP/IP and link them to a TCP/IP WAN and run server/client across the combined network, as well as other legacy NetBIOS and new Sockets applications. Enhancements have been made to contain the NetBIOS broadcasts on the LAN to manageable proportions.

TCP/IP Services provides Dynamic IP, which simplifies both IP host network access and IP network administration and overcomes many of the inherent weaknesses of traditional IP networks. Consequently, Dynamic IP facilitates smooth network operation and change. It is also well suited for supporting the networking of mobile hosts. Dynamic IP utilizes only open standard networking technologies. Therefore, Dynamic IP hosts are fully compatible with and fully interoperate with existing IP network hosts.

Benefits of Dynamic IP include:

Other standard protocols used are: Multiple TCP/IP applications supported:



Backup and Recovery Services

No one disputes the requirement for making periodic backups of vital data to guard against the possibility of minor machine failures or catastrophic disasters. This applies particularly to data on the server that may be shared by and affect multiple users.

OS/2 Warp Server's Backup and Recovery support for the server makes these tasks easy and, if required, largely automatic. Services provided include:

In short, the backup and recovery support is flexible, easy, and largely automated. There are no more excuses for being unable to access vital data.



Advanced Print Services

Advanced Print Services, based on the PSF(TM)/2 program product, brings host-like printer support to the LAN, including support for PostScript documents on selected non-PostScript printers.

Advanced Print Services provides the following capabilities:

Advanced Print Services also supports PostScript, HP-PCL, and HP-PGL files in passthrough mode, permitting end users to send all print files to a single printer destination. An administrator can configure Advanced Print Services to reroute jobs directly to the proper local queue or port and avoid unnecessary processing when the application datastream is supported by the printer. Note that PostScript printers are only supported in passthrough mode.

Note: TCP/IP attachment capability is included in OS/2 Warp Server for AFP/IPDS(TM) printers.



Application Server Support

OS/2 Warp Server significantly enhances the application-serving capabilities of the NOS. Not only can LAN users access and use applications stored on the server, but the administration of applications both on the server and on individual workstations is much facilitated. Some of the services provided (through the System Management Services component) include:

The effect of these functions is to provide a more complete, consistent, efficient, and cost-saving approach to application sharing. Control rests with the administrator who is in a much better position to ensure that all users are provided for easily and effectively.



OS/2 WARP SERVER ADVANCED, VERSION 4

OS/2 Warp Server Advanced, Version 4 extends the function provided in OS/2 Warp Server, Version 4 by including:

Descriptions of these additional features and functions follow.



ADDITIONAL FUNCTIONS AVAILABLE ON SEPARATE CD

Included with the OS/2 Warp Server product on a separate CD are the following tools:

These tools are designed to enhance usability. Descriptions of these tools follow.

Novell NetWare to IBM LAN Server Migration Utility:

The NetWare to LAN Server Migration Utility assists users who want to migrate from a NetWare 2.x or 3.x network operating system to IBM's 32-bit OS/2 LAN Server 3.0, 4.0, and OS/2 Warp Server. It allows users to migrate as much or as little information as desired. Moreover, resources added to the LAN Server can be defined as aliases long before the actual migration takes place. Users and groups and their descriptions can be migrated, and access rights will be at least equivalent to those defined on the NetWare server. There are two migration paths. The first is non-destructive, which will allow you to set up a test environment without affecting your production NetWare file server. The second offers you the capability to directly migrate an existing NetWare file server when additional hardware is not available for more robust testing.

HP and Lexmark Network Print Utilities:

AskPSP

OS/2 Warp Server comes with its own built-in Help Desk. AskPSP is an expert system that can answer many of the more frequently encountered questions and problems that you may run into when using your workstation in the OS/2 Warp Server environment for the first time. This will aid learning and save you much time. You pose the question; may come back for additional information to narrow the possibilities; and it provides you with possible solutions. Support is provided for:

SNMP/DMI Agent

OS/2 Warp Server provides a SystemView Agent that conforms to the Desktop Management Interface (DMI) to allow SNMP management of DMI-compliant hardware and software components. Specific subagents are included to allow the management of IBM OS/2 (including OS/2 Warp); IBM Communications Manager/2; IBM OS/2 LAN Server (Versions 3.0 and 4.0) and LAN Requester; and DB2/2(TM). Components can be managed by any SNMP management platform, such as IBM's SystemView for AIX and NetView for OS/2.

Mobile File Sync (MFS)

MFS is a client-mode utility that was first distributed with the AttachPak for OS/2 Warp Connect and has now been updated to improve its performance. It enables client users to physically disconnect from the server and still have access to their (stored) Server files. Users can read or modify existing files, create new files or directories, or delete existing ones. Reconnection to the server automatically updates the server. MFS provides extensive conflict detection and resolution of any files changed on the server or the client.

Software Registration (Axtive)

IBM encourages you to register as an OS/2 Warp Server user so we may better serve you as developments occur. Accordingly, we have included a registration tool to facilitate this action. At initial install or at your convenience later, if desired, you are encouraged to send us appropriate details of yourself and your organization. You are given the options of registering directly using a modem or by responding by telephone, fax, or mail.

Backup and Recovery-Supported Media

Note: QIC drive support requires pre-formatted tapes.

Lexmark MarkVision Supported Printers: MarkVision supports the Lexmark Optra family and 4039 plus family of printers attached to MarkNet XL or XLe network adapters.

HP JetAdmin supports these HP printers and plotters with HP JetDirect print servers:

MIO Devices

XIO Devices HP JetAdmin features vary depending on the level of functionality of the HP JetDirect print server or the peripheral devices. HP JetAdmin fully supports the functions of the advanced network printing solutions in OS/2 Warp Server for all printers that are highlighted.

Software Requirements: The operating system requirements for OS/2 Warp Server, Version 4 and OS/2 Warp Server Advanced, Version 4 and the clients that are included with the products are as follows:

Note: Refer to the charts on Client Capabilities under Client Support in the Description for a table of the supported client function for both included, as well as pre-existing clients.

Server Requirements:

IBM OS/2 Warp 3.0 base operating system has been integrated with IBM OS/2 Warp Server, Version 4 and IBM OS/2 Warp Server Advanced, Version 4. Therefore, OS/2 Warp Server and OS/2 Warp Server Advanced have no prerequisite software requirements.

Client Requirements:

LAN Server for Macintosh Version 1.01 requires OS/2 LAN Server 3.0, or later.

OEM Operating Systems: IBM certification testing has been completed on various OEM hardware and operating systems. OS/2 Warp Server, Version 4 and OS/2 Warp Server Advanced, Version 4, including requesters, are supported on those OEM platforms that are listed in Prodigy and CompuServe, under OS/2 Forums. Use search word OS/2 to find various forums related to OS/2 products, including OS/2 Warp Server.

Compatibility: OS/2 Warp Server, Version 4 and OS/2 Warp Server Advanced, Version 4 support 32-bit applications created with the IBM C SET/2 Version 1.0 compiler. The support allows 32-bit applications to call the 16-bit APIs. Microsoft C Version 6.0 is also supported.

Problems resulting from compiler errors must be reported to the appropriate vendor.

Hardware Adapter Support: Multiple adapter support consists of the ability to manage up to four logical networks concurrently. Token-ring and Ethernet adapters are supported. The multiple adapter support is expected to be used primarily on servers; however, this support is available on OS/2 requesters as well. A maximum of 254 NetBIOS sessions are supported per adapter card. With four adapters, up to 1,000 NetBIOS sessions are supported. Using a single adapter, TCPBEUI can support up to 1,000 sessions. In either case, the maximum number of sessions supported is 1,000.

The OS/2 Warp Server's support of the Network Device Interface Specification (NDIS) makes it possible to support many LAN adapter cards with NDIS-compliant device drivers. Some drivers for the OS/2 environment are shipped with OS/2 Warp Server, Version 4 and OS/2 Warp Server Advanced, Version 4 for the supported LAN adapters. The NDIS interface is publicly documented and supported. In addition to support of the documented NDIS-compliant adapters, a Loop Back driver is included for communication back to the same system. These NDIS-compliant adapters are documented on CompuServe. Refer to Hardware Requirements for details on how to retrieve the list of currently supported adapters.

Remote IPL Support: Servers providing the Remote IPL service can be equipped with any adapter supported by OS/2 Warp Server, Version 4 or OS/2 Warp Server Advanced, Version 4.

Remote IPL requesters must be equipped with at least one of the network adapter types that supports RIPL.

In addition to the OS/2 Versions that were previously supported by Remote IPL, the following OS/2 versions are also supported.

IBM DOS 7.0 has been added to the list of DOS versions supported.

LAN Adapter Support: A list of supported adapters are available on several online forums such as CompuServe. Refer to this list for adapter support that best suits your needs. Refer to Hardware Requirements for CompuServe access information.

File and Print Services Capability: The following four tables detail the interoperability of previously available clients, including the OS/2 Warp Server Version 4 and OS/2 Warp Server Advanced, Version 4 clients with previously available servers and the OS/2 File and Print Sharing Services. Limitations to their interoperability are contained in the following set of notes.

Notes:

  1. Remote access to serial devices is not supported.
  2. The network administrator defines a user ID that matches the machine name of the PCLP Base Services workstation. When the workstation issues a NET USE command, the machine name is validated against the defined user IDs.
  3. Peer Services for DOS and OS/2 are limited to sharing with one client at a time (single session). The Peer module of OS/2 Warp Connect may share services with multiple clients.
  4. Administrative capability from the DOS File and Print Client is available only from the File and Print Sharing Services API. A large number of categories that support remote network administration are supported.
  5. In addition to the API support described above, File and Print Services for OS/2 Warp Server includes the NET ADMIN command, which allows full command line administration of File and Print Sharing Services.
  6. PCLP and Microsoft servers cannot be defined with a File and Print Sharing Services domain; access to those resources are cross-domain.
  7. PCLP is available on single-byte character set (SBCS) systems only.
  8. Partial administration function only.
  9. Function available in base product.
  10. Command line administration via NET ADMIN only.
  11. No serial device support.
Restrictions: Mixing and matching network componentry from different levels of products is not supported. For example, OS/2 LAN Requester 4.0 is not supported by OS/2 Warp Server MPTS.

If any network component is upgraded with a like network component from OS/2 Warp Server, all network components must be upgraded to OS/2 Warp Server. For example, if MPTS is upgraded on an OS/2 LAN Requester 4.0, then the requester must be upgraded to OS/2 Warp Server File and Print Client at the same time. Related OS/2 Warp Server client components include:

For DOS and Windows, related client components are: Limitations: Performance Considerations: The File and Print Services runs as much as 14% faster than OS/2 LAN Server 4.0, thanks to improvements in OS/2 Warp, Version 3 over OS/2, Version 2.11.

A new TCP/IP protocol stack that includes TCPBEUI functionality for DOS File and Print and Windows clients has significantly improved performance over OS/2 LAN Server 4.0. It is now close enough to NetBEUI performance for file and print functions that most users will not observe a difference between them.

Also, included is a new Protect Mode TCPBEUI protocol stack for the DOS and Windows clients that provides good performance and uses no conventional memory.

| When estimating memory requirements, it is essential to make|
| a provision for all services that might reside in OS/2 Warp |
| Server at any one time in order to obtain optimal           |
| performance.  However, most programs require more memory    |
| during start-up than during normal operation.  Sizing for   |
| these peaks will result in very good performance but at a   |
| high cost.  The performance reserve number is sized to      |
| remove most, but not all, start-up peak memory requirements,|
| trading off memory for start-up time.  One can choose to    |
| accept slower start-up times for smaller performance reserve|
| memory requirements, if desired.  The numbers above reflect |
| the memory requirements for normal operations for a minimum |
| configuration system and estimates for a multi-client       |
| configuration when the two can be significantly different.  |
| Add the memory requirements for the services you want to run|
| concurrently to estimate your total OS/2 Warp Server memory |
| requirements.                                               |

OS/2 Warp Server Memory Requirements for DOS or Windows File and Print Clients: The amount of memory needed for DOS or Windows File and Print clients is determined by the size of the applications being used and/or the operating system requirements, if any of the Windows operating systems is used. An important consideration is how much of the memory below 640KB is free after the client is loaded. Refer to the table in Customer Responsibilities to estimate this remaining memory based on your configuration of transport, redirector, and DOS version.

To assist customers in planning the configuration of their DOS File and Print Client, the following matrix is provided to show memory options available.

Note: The amount of free memory available will vary depending on your specific hardware configuration and which, if any, memory managers are used. The following numbers are representative but should not be considered precise. Relative comparisons of transports, redirectors, and DOS versions can be made.
