NW6.5 FTP-file-mismatch with FTP over TotalCommander

Hello *
We use the FTP-Service within the TotalCommander-Program (TC from
www.ghisler.com) to access a NetWare-NSS-Volume.

Some filenames contains periods and space characters also
(e.g. "1.2 Chapter x.pdf".)

After a couple of weeks (~80 days) the displayed file-name changes: This
happens within the TC-FTP-access only. All other access-methods (MS-FTP;
Novell-NetStorage; NCP - Windows-Explorer) are showing the name correctly.


e.g.
access over NCP, MS-FTP, NetStorage | access over FTP within TC
displayed filename |(after ~80 days) displayed filename
------------------------------------|----------------------------
"2.1 Chapter ONE.pdf" |"Chapter ONE.pdf"

This happens from every PC at the same time, so there have to be some
changement on the NetWare-Server.
Volume compression is disabled (nssmu.nlm)

We have to copy or open and save the file again to get rid of this for
the next ~80 days ...

Any idea?

Re: NW6.5 FTP-file-mismatch with FTP over TotalCommander

OK, well that's fine. I have no idea what your problem is, there is no automatic process on NW that runs every 80 days. The closest I can think of would be the NSS background check; Normally it runs 5 days after the server comes up and every two weeks thereafter.

Do you have perhaps an anti-virus or backup that runs a scan regularly over the volumes at that interval?

That aside all I can suggest is a rebuild:

nss /poolrebuild /purge

Thank you - Andrew,
yes, SOPHOS-Anti-Virus is installed, and there is a regularly Backup-Job
also. But both are running weekly ...
Anyway, we have to move the data to a new OS ... (could be a solution
for this ...)
By the way, Symantec-Backup-Exec-Support told me, that restoring the
trustee-rights (from a NetWare-NSS-Volume-Backup) to a OES-NSS-Volume is
not supported ("reason: ... it is another OS!").
Can you recommend a smooth method to move the data from NW to OES?
Kind regards
Oskar

Sure, miggui, e.g Novells very own Tool for exactly that purpose.
Installed by default on all OES servers.
