Hello everyone,

I currently have a BorderManager 3.7 firewall running on an HP Proliant
DL 320 server. I would like to consider moving to a dedicated hardware
firewall device, and am in the process of acquiring one for testing
purposes. My questions are these:

1. If I "down" the BorderManager server in order to install the test
firewall device, how long can I leave the BorderManager server offline
without causing any eDirectory problems?

2. If I do in fact move to a firewall appliance for the long term, what
is the recommended method to remove the BorderManager server from the
directory? (I would be planning on removing both the BorderManager
product and the Netware server from the directory).

Thank you in advance for your help with these questions.
