Very basic question on shares on Novell Open Enterprise Server 6.5
Posted on 2007-09-28
This probably sounds like a very basic question for somebody familiar wiht Novell products, but I could urgently do with an answer.
I have zero experience with Novell Netware etc. I've taken over a site where I will be replacing the Novell OES 6.5 server with a Windows SBS server. Looking at the screen of the Novell server I have what looks like a Linux command prompt. I also have access to iManager and ConsoleOne running on a workstation here.
When I browse to \\SERVER_NAME\ from a workstation I see a number of shared folders - APPS, DATA and SYS. What I want to do is Robocopy all the files from these folders (I reckon some of them are just system files, but there is user data in each folder unfortunately) then remap the drives on the workstations to point to the folders on the SBS server. However I need some way of stopping users accessing these folders by accident later on (the OES server will be staying in place for a couple of weeks), which is very likely as some users have laptops that I don't have access to yet.
In Windows I'd just delete the shares or remove permissions to them, what do I do with an OES and how do I do it? I've gone through all the settings I can see in iManager and ConsoleOne without seeing an obvious "This folder/volume is shared as SYS".
Any help appreciated!
