OCUBE used Ask the Experts™

 We have a Novell Netware server 5.1

All the volumes in Novel server  (VOL1,VOL2,VOL3,SYS) has some of user data.

We have windows network and all the client computers have the novel drives mapped.

We are moving the entire novel data in volumes into Window server.

I moving the data from a Windows machine which has these novel drives mapped.

I wanted to make sure that the Novel files/data in volumes are copied without any errors
due files being open or locked up any users.

How do I close any locks or open session in Novel, this way I will not have any errors during this huge copying
