We have a novell server we are phasing out. We need to move the files to the linux server. We have a problem... some users named files things like APPS.-DIRECTORY. with a trailing . on the end... apparently MAC thinks this is ok (they were created on a mac) and novell has no problem storing them. When I share out to the Novell server and try to copy to the linux server via my Win98 box, Win98 dies on any file with a .- in it or a trailing .
We have 2 options I can think of but am not sure how to do either:
#1: Connect to the Novell server via the Linux box. How? Obviosuly I cannot load the Win32 Novell client on Linux... how can I access it?
#2: Take the drive out, mount it in the linux box, and copy the files. Easier said than done... mount wont recgonize the filesystem... what filesystem type is a Novell (type 65) partition? Which mount options do I use?
