Dell AppAssure

Has anyone tried using Dell AppAssure to backup Novell OES Linux servers with NSS volumes? They appear to have an agent for SLES but only support ext3, ext4, and XFS, not NSS.

Got some info. Not possible to use Dell AppAssure with NSS. AppAssure works at the block level, so it cannot be used to backup NSS volumes. There are no plans to add that support into the product at this time.

Do they support xattr? I use that most of the time now instead of sms.

Xattr won't help, it's a block-level based backup. Dell suggested using their NetVault software instead of AppAssure since that works at the file level and supports the use of xattr. Obviously, that won't do what AppAssure does, but that was their solution for backing up NSS.
