Duplicate and replace small scsi disk with larger one in a novell 3.12 server.
Posted on 2003-12-10
I have a generic unbranded server running novell 3.12 - (I didnt install this server - I only admin it).
The ONLY hard disk in the machine is an IBM DCAS-32160 (2.1GB).
I want to replace this hard disk with a larger one as space is running out on the sys vol and the disk is very old and noisy.
I know a lot about pc's but not too much about novell installations.
What is the best software utility (either novell or shareware/commerical program) I should use to duplicate the entire DCAS-32160 hard disk to a new larger disk, and then plug the new larger one in to replace the old one?
Also, whats the largest hard disk novell 3.12 will be able to handle? The motherboard is quite old (sorry no details of the model number).
Ideally, I want to be able to plug the new larger one in and boot up as if nothing had changed!
Any help appreciated!
