What is the NJE/IP Bridge?
Sine Nomine Associates’ NJE/IP Bridge allows a user to interconnect NJE communication services on unmodified OS/390, VM, z/VM, z/OS, VSE, TPF and -- for the first time – open systems (such as Linux or Solaris) connected to IPv4 and IPv6 IP networks.
An article by Adam Thornton originally published in Technical Support (December 2000) discusses Linux for System/390 for designing and deploying large-scale Internet service provider (ISP) and Internet data center (IDC) infrastructure solutions.
This article by Adam Thornton (November 2000) describes the content and construction of a test plan for implementing a World Wide Web (WWW) virtual server farm and supporting Linux for S/390 infrastructure for a large telecommunications company.
Appended below are 4 files which are a insserv-safe version of the Oracle instance startup script, modified to take advantage of the "standard" Yast features and /etc/sysconfig support. I also split up the database startup and the SQL*net startup by putting each into a separate script and adding a dependency on the database startup for sqlnet to initialize. All the configuration variables are pulled out into /etc/sysconfig files, and you can edit them individually with the YaST sysconfig editor.
This offering delivers a complete worldwide 24x7 telephone and email-based support service for the Debian/390 distribution.
