Will REZID still be required for NSS volumes.

I just remembered that there is a "sizing" issue with (32bit?) Novell clients that requires that NSS volumes be ReZID when they last ZID id exceeds 4 Billion.

With >8TB volumes, is the likelihood of the ZID climbing over 4 Billion increased to the point where it's likely to become a recurring problem.

Is that addressed with either/or the NSS64 code or the Newer Novell Clients?

Does this impact on CIFS/SAMBA/AFP/NFS presentation of the NSS volumes or is it only an issue from NCP clients?

Given that you've also posted this in the OES2015 Public Beta forum
(other see
https://forums.novell.com/showthread.php/491804-Will-REZID-still-be-required-for-NSS-volumes
) which version of OES are you asking about here?

HTH.
