After using the migration wizard only on your sys volume, you may find that you have to edit some NDS objects, or, even worse, recreate them.

SOLUTION: Even if you won't be migrating those volumes with migration wizard (e.g. restore from tape) make sure that they exist on the new server before doing the migration. If not, the NDS objects that reference those volumes will lose their attributes.

This is probably common knowledge, but worth mentioning. This can save you a lot of work, especially if you have many users or other objects.
