OS 8.1 & Appleshare IP 5.0.x

Hi,

Has anyone installed Mac OS 8.1 using the Mac OS Extended Format (HFS+) on a Workgroup Server (9650/233)? Is Appleshare 5.0.2(3) compatible with 8.1? What do I need to do/know before I attempt this?

Also, we use a DHCP server for our IP addresses would there be any problems with multi-homing? Where would I find more documentation about this?

We might not use HFS+ until the new Norton Utilities comes out, so the latter part of this question is the most important.

Thanks,
Dan

HFS+ is dangerous. Waiting for a fully functionable Norton is a very good idea.

As far as upgrading to 8.1, you should know if Apple supports that configuration before you upgrade. They will not talk to you if you have a problem with an unsupported configuration even if you pay for the support. I would call the AppleShare support line for the supported configuration info as the web-based info is usually not as current.
