iFolder 3 backup

I have iFolder3 running on OES/Linux. I need to be able to access the entire
iFolder storage area from a Windows machine to copy it for backup. What's
the best way to go about that? Samba share? FTP? ??? Will there be file
locking issues?

Thanks!

Samba sounds like the easiest method. Make sure it's read only though...

Re: iFolder 3 backup

Ok, so for me to get user access to that Samba share, I need to learn,
understand, configure, and make work the LUM stuff, right? I know I need to
learn that stuff eventually but is there any way to skip that for now? I
just need one user to get access to that share for now...

Thanks!

Re: iFolder 3 backup

I just learned that I can mount non NSS stuff with ncpcon and make it look like any ordinary NCP volume. Could I use that technique for pulling off the iFolder data instead of Samba? Which would be better? Why?

Thanks!

I don't know that either has an advantage over the other. Since you already
have NCP working, it saves you the time of setting Samba up and testing it.

I would agree with that. I didn;t think that your backup server would
have the novell client. D'oh
