Converting from Traditional to NSS

I currently have a Netware Traditional Partition with 2 established
volumes and about 40GB in unused Partition space. I am using Zenworks
6.5 SP2 and I need to setup a NSS volume to store images. How do I
remove the 40GB from the Netware Partition and convert it to a NSS volume?

Thanks,

Coy

Re: Converting from Traditional to NSS

You can use VCU.NLM or Scorpion from Portlock

Portlock Storage manager can resize netware partitions. Portlock
Scorpion can convert them to NSS (as Duane already said).

Re: Converting from Traditional to NSS

Does the 40gb need to be true free space or can it be free space within a
Netware Traditional partition? The space I have available is in a
Traditional Netware volume along with another volume I need to keep. Can
that be converted to NSS space without affecting the other volume?

Re: Converting from Traditional to NSS

You may want to give Portlock a call to get your specifics answed at
(406) 723-5200, but from what I understand, free space is free space,
and you should be ok. In any case, they wrote it and is the best place
to ask.

If referring to VCU.NLM, it is important to know that "VCU" means,
"Volume Copy Upgrade", not "Volume Conversion Utility". You may want to
consult with the documentation on it (too big to post here) to ensure it
does what you want and that all requirements are met.
