15.3 Mounting Remote File Systems

The OES 11 Migration Tool, which runs on the target OES 11 server, must mount the remote file systems of the source servers in order to obtain information about the source volumes and to copy the specified data to the target server.

For NetWare and OES Linux migrations, the mls and migfiles commands use nwmap command to map to the remote volumes and read data from the _admin volume to validate the source path. The mls and migfiles commands unmount the file system upon termination. If a process is killed forcibly (kill -9), the mount point remains mounted and must be unmounted by the administrator.

The mls command uses the nbackup tool to build the list of trustees.
