Novell Announces UnixWare 1.1
Free Upgrade Offers Customers Additional Hardware Support, Tighter
Integration with NetWare and Enhanced Customer Support Program
Overview: As a part of its ongoing effort to provide customers with a
proven, advanced UNIX operating system that is easy to use and seamlessly
integrated with NetWare, Novell today announced UnixWare 1.1. In
response to customer needs, this latest version of Novell's UNIX general
purpose operating system is easier to manage, supports a broader range
of hardware including additional low-cost CD-ROMs, enables Windows
applications (including those written for NetWare) to run on top of
UnixWare, accesses NetWare services through NetWare 4.x servers, and
comes with bundled TCP/IP support in both the Personal Edition and
Server Versions. In addition, UnixWare 1.1 has been improved to better
support internationalization and localization with its European Language
A new customer support program offered with UnixWare 1.1 includes free
installation advice by phone for the first thirty days and a telephone
(800-486-4835) service thereafter where the customer is charged either by
the minute or with a $50 per-inquiry fee.
Specific enhancements in UnixWare1.1 include:
_ TCP/IP is now offered in the Personal Edition as well as the
Advanced Server versions of UnixWare. The new TCP/IP includes support
SLIP and SNMP allowing remote node dial-ins to look like native clients
as well as the ability for network administrators to see both NetWare and
UnixWare nodes on a single display. With UnixWare 1.1, administrators
can now seamlessly access all UNIX networks including the Internet and
can manage the UnixWare system from a central site. Inclusion of
TCP/IP and the additional COSE compliance (see below) are further steps
in Novell's commitment to help unify the UNIX market.
_ Additional Hardware Support for Philips and Sony CD-ROMs, Adaptec
and Future Domain SCSI adapters, 3Com and NE Ethernet adapter cards,
source routing for IBM Token Ring, video support for Compaq Q-Vision.
_ Online Data Manager, a file system with high availability and
performance, offering sophisticated online file and disk management that
is easy to administer with a graphical utility.
_ Increased COSE Compliance with OSF/Motif 1.2 runtime libraries,
enabling UnixWare to look and feel like other UNIX system offerings, and
reducing training time and costs.
_ Advanced Merge for Windows is included in both the Personal Edition
and Application Server and is installed by default. With Advanced Merge,
Microsoft Windows applications written for NetWare run on top of UnixWare
and can connect into NetWare and its services as though these
applications were running on Microsoft Windows -based PCs. Tighter
integration between NetWare and UnixWare provides customers with a
powerful and unique rightsizing solution ideal for enterprise
_ Support for NetWare file and print services through NetWare 4.x and
3.x name space.
