Recover files from Novell Netware 6 volume onto external USB hard drive
Posted on 2013-12-11
I have a Novell Netware 6 enterprise server that has previously crashed. The server is able to boot now but It appears that the directory database has crashed and it doesn't allow me to login with a client, or can the client even find the tree.
My only interest is to recover the files an abandon the Novell Netware 6 server all together.
I am very unfamiliar with Novell, and I am unfamiliar with even browsing the folders through the console.
How can I browse through the server using the console and mount a USB drive to copy the files to. I dont even know the commands to do this, but when I tried NDIR, the command was missing. The FILER module wouldnt seem to work either.
Is it possible to stage the server as a Windows server and use a 3rd party program to browse the Netware volume to copy the files off?
