Accessing Novell NSS Volumes with Samba
Posted on 2006-11-23
I have Novell OES running on SLES 9. This machine is currently my File Server with Edir 8..8. I also have a Windows 2003 server which is currently running Active Directory, and also acts as the DNS and DHCP server. All workstations connect to the OES with novell client for windows, as well as Active Directory.
My problem is this. I need to be able to connect to one of the NSS volumes from my Windows 2003 Server. The reason for this being that the OES machine has a tape drive that all info needs to be backed up onto. In other words I need to remotely backup files from Windows 2003 Server to the OES Server, which will then be backed up onto tape.
I have followed all the steps with regards to SAMBA, ie LUM, universal password etc, but without any luck. I am able to browse to the specified directories on NSS, but I am not able to access them.
Any ideas ?
