Question about volume migrations

Hello everyone,
We're running a two-node NW6.5 SP3 cluster. One of our volumes contains all
of our employees user files (the My Documents folder on the desktop actually
points to this volume). Last week, I needed to migrate this volume to the
other node. During the migration process, one of our employees had a Word
document open on the volume. He attempted to save changes made to the Word
document as the volume was migrating over. He received a "disk error"
message and then Word closed automatically and unfortunately, he lost all of
his modifications. I looked on his local drive with hopes of finding a
backup copy or recovered file, but no luck. Are there any settings I can
change that will allow the user to save the file locally if the clustered
volume is temporary unavailable? Thanks!

Paul

Re: Question about volume migrations

Would you believe that if you have an M$ cluster you get the same
behavior! And if your client was Win9x then you wouldn't see the
problem...

Sorry this is a Word Design "feature" and there is nowt we can do
about those 😞

In the event of a fail over, on the first disk write error he should
be able to save locally, and then reopen it (immediately) and then
save as and save to the cluster volume.
