I have a customer that need an uninterrupted file server, because it has a 24 hs service.
There are some solution over Novell ( Switched server for example, and SFT III in the past ), but i need to know if there is some linux alternative solution for this.
We need work with Samba service in the server, because the clients are win 9x and the aplication is not a Web application.


Sorry for muy poor english

Hello Omar

There are several alternatives to that, but it requires a
bit of hacking around, FAM and IMON are one example of that


there is also a listing of similar solutions at
the Linux Entreprise Computing web page

take a look at them, I can't recomment any of them, it all
depends on your situation.

good luck
