Netware 4.x backup restoration to NT

By banksr ·
We are going to Migrate files from a NW 4.11 server to and NT server. Options would be across the wire copy or tape restore. With Arcserve 6.1 for Netware, I understand we would have to disable the SMS backup function, disable file compression on the Netware volume (which has long file names enabled) then back up to tape.
Merge the tape to the NT server ArcServe database and then pick and choose directories or files to restore to NT. I understand their will be issues of the long filenames being intact once they are restored to my NT server. Has anyone been successfull on doing this while keeping your files in tact between the two server operating system. Also, any tips would be appreciated.
Regards,
Ronn

Seems like a waste of time. You only need to do this if you want to keep the same box as the server for the migration. If you are moving to another box, just copy the files across the wire. Use Microsoft's client for netware networks, using a userid in the bindery context of the server that has full admin rights. Use windows explorer, find the directories and copy. Since you really can't copy the directory or file rights, this would be the easiest and quickest.

Before you do the file copy, create your groups etc and then set your directory permissions. Then when you copy files into the preexisting directories, you won't have to worry about going back and doing that.
