CD Server

By gnet158 ·
All,

We are currently running MDI SCSI Express on a Netware 4.2 server. It hold 20 CD's and it works fine however I wanted to know if anyone has used any other type of CD servers?
The key features to me is that it mounts the CD as a Netware Volume. Any help would be great....

Long live Netware and NDS....

We used SCSI Express w/NW3.11 server, but when the machine was retired, I installed one of the 4 CD towers on a NW4.2 server and used NW native CDROM.NLM. This is how I make our network copy of MS TechNet available to our IT department. It mounts just fine as a NW volume. I've not used any other 3rd party CD server software, but MDI was at ground zero & I recommended years ago based on what I saw at Networld (just prior to being renamed Networks Expo).

the CD net line works pretty good though my counterpart took two days to get the initial configuration right. Since its install 8 months ago we havent had to think about it one time.

We have been using a 28 Drive, Meridian CD Net system for the past 5 Years. This does not mount as a NW Volume. It is quite fiddly to use. There is an upgrade, but it requires NT.

I am currently using Hewlett Packard Shurestore CD-towers.

They are Netware Yes Approved

They integrate with NDS as well as unix, nt and mac.

The server shows up in NDS as a Netware server, The entire server shows up as one
volume object SYS with the label of the cd
as a sub-directory.

You can map users to volumes via login scripts and group accounts.

They are very usefull and 14 bays cost about
$2800.00 US

Hope this helps

Frank

We use a Meridian 56 bay tower using the CDNet program at the PC level. (We boot the tower from a floppy!) CDNet works really, really well, when it doesn't get memory errors. We were told by Excel, who bought Meridian, that they were going to phase out CDNet, so we bought an Axis StorPoint thin server to put in our new Meridian tower. I LOVE IT!! You can use it with: Web(HTTP), Windows(SMB), NetWare(NCP), UNIX(NFS) AND Mac(AFP). It is a great product and has not gone down since I put it into production. There are upgrades coming for the thinserver that will make it even easier to use. I highly reccommend it if you have the funds.
