Netware 4.11 Hard Disk Upgrade


I'm looking for the right way or procedures to upgrade my hard disk of volume sys: to a larger one.  I would like to retain my directory service users along with all binary and NDS related info.  

Most importantly, how can I backup my NDS to make sure I have all NDS and binary info when I upgrade.

One very important step you should do is to DS Backup/Restore step

load install
got to DS services
choose Ds backup and resotre
do a backup before you upgrade your hard disk and keep a copy of the backup.nds file that it generates outside the hard disk yuo want to replace.

Now to replace your hard disk:

1) Fully backup your NDS and File System
2) Backup DS as mentioned above
3) Replace hardware and install basic Novell
4) Restore DS as mentioned above
5) Fully Restore file systems from tapes

I have done this before and it worked just fine.

Let me know if I can further help.
