OES11 Read Netware 6.5 NSS RAID?

I have some volumes on a Netware 6.5 SP8 server (disk holding the SYSTEM volume) that has just died. Is it possible to physically move the disks to an OES11 SP1 server and have this server be able to read/mount the volumes? Or must I rebuild the NW6.5 server to access the disks and then do an ncpmount to the OES11 server?

TIA

Yes. If they're still intact of course.

I am hoping that they are!
Once I rebuild the server with OES11 SP1 (including NSS services?), do I just need to do a scan of my system to import those volumes or what would be the best way?

You have to go into nssmu on the OES server once and manually activate
pool and volume there. From then on the server will do it on it's own.
