Why does mig utility decompress files when migrating?

Migrating NSS with compression from NW 6.5.8 to OES2 SP1 NSS with compression.

Why does the file system migration decompress the data?

I thought it used a TSA connection between the servers?

Unfortunately, the migration tool does not even try to detect whether
compression is enabled on the destination volume. To make sure the copy it
has no problem with compressed files, the migration tool always uses the
option to uncompress files during the copy.

It's designed to bring over the files compressed if compression is enabled
on the destination. I didn't have a compressed volume to test it out end to
end, but the code is in place to get over compressed files. If this isn't
working for you can you file an SR with Novell and attach the migfiles
debug output to it?

I've not checked to be honest.

I did have NSS compression enabled on both source and target.

I only mentioned it because in an ATT class, the instructor said that it wouldn't copy the data compressed.

testing assures me it works... I guess it didn't work in OES 2, but with
SP1, it does work. Can you pass on the instructor's name? I'll chat up with
him to get it corrected...
