This IBM Redbooks publication discusses S/390 file and print serving solutions. It will help you install, tailor, and configure the following file and print serving solutions on S/390:

- LANRES for OS/390, VM and VSE
- NFS, two-tier and a three-tier solutions, both on OS/390 and VM
- Samba, both for OS/390 and VM
- The new SMB Server for OS/390
- Infoprint Server

Additionally, the future of the LAN Server product is discussed.

Tables are included with the pros and cons of each solution, and with answers to commonly asked questions about each solution.

This book will be of value for NetWare, Windows, OS/2, UNIX, and S/390 users, as well as for IT planners, system administrators, system programmers, and others who are interested in LAN file server consolidation on S/390.
