If you access our forums via the NNTP interface, you need to make one
little change as soon as possible in your reader to ensure continuity
in using our forums. The essentials are outlined in the NNTP section
of our forum FAQ (NetIQ, Novell, SUSE, openSUSE)

This affects all of The Attachmate Group's business units. Currently
all TAG forums can be found on both of our servers. Select the
appropriate DNS name for your reader:

Server A
Server B

*NOTE: The old server names of forums.novell.com and
forums.opensuse.org will no longer work after March 31, 2013

This has no effect on anyone using the web interface.

In a nutshell, you need to change the server DNS entry as soon as you
get around to it. After March 31st, 2013 the old server name will no
longer work. In news readers tested, message pointers remained intact
so it was no big deal to change.


We've moved our NNTP servers out from behind our A10 switch, which was
causing some problems with some readers. It was the A10 that allowed
us to use the same DNS for HTTP and NNTP, hence the need for a new name
in NNTP.
