SuSE NSS files system 64 bit

Hi,

 

Just wondering if anybody knows if DP has any plans to add NSS 64 bit file system in their support matrix?

 

Thank you.

NSS (on Netware) or OES1/2 is supported with DP. What are you looking for in detail? Provide some versions and specific requirements.

Regards,
Sebastian

From the Data Protector 6.21 Online help...

 

About Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) Backup

The backup procedure for Novell OES is the same as the standard backup procedure on Novell NetWare, with some Novell OES-specific aspects.

Prerequisites

  • The Data Protector Disk Agent must be installed on the Novell OES system.

  • The Target Service Agent for file system must be loaded in dual mode (for example, TSAFS.NLM on Novell NetWare 6.5).

  • The user account used to log in to Novell OES backup services must be selected and saved to the file HPLOGIN.NLM. Any user account can be used, but the files and directories for backup will be limited to those of the user account.

  • To use backup devices connected to a Novell OES system in Data Protector, install the General Media Agent for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9.0 on the Novell OES system.

  • Storage Management Services (SMS) must be installed on the Novell OES system. Shared libraries used by SMS must be installed in the folder /opt/novell/lib: libsmdr.so, libsmsut.so, and libtsafs.so.

 

What is backed up?

  • Native Linux volumes (note that native Linux file system can be restored to an NSS volume on an OES system).

  • NSS volumes (note that an NSS volume on an OES or NetWare system can be restored to native Linux file system).

  • NSS cluster volumes.

NetWare traditional file system and NSS volumes on a NetWare system can be restored to an NSS volume on an OES system, or to a native Linux volume (the data is restored, while the file system attributes are lost).

The following can be backed up on NSS volumes:

  • Files and directories on NSS volumes

  • Full volumes and mount points of NSS volumes

  • Compressed NSS volumes

  • Busy files on NSS volumes

  • Volume Space Restrictions of NSS volumes

The directory structure and the files are backed up. Along with the files and directories, the following file system information is backed up:

  • Name space information

  • Trustee information

  • Inherited right mask

  • File and directory attributes

  • Time attributes (creation date/time, modification date/time, last accessed date/time, last modified date/time, last archived date/time)

  • Volume and directory space restrictions

    To back up volume restrictions, select the whole volume object for backup.

  • Owner

  • Owning name space

  • Search mode

  • Extended attributes

    Extended attributes can be installed as a Novell NetWare addition.

 

Regards,

Sebastian
