The Shadow File System (ShadowFS) provides a merged file tree view of the data on a Novell Dynamic Storage Technology (DST) shadow volume for Novell Samba users. This section describes how ShadowFS works and how to configure it with Novell Samba.
IMPORTANT:Novell CIFS works directly with NCP Server to provide a merged view for CIFS users. It is not necessary to install or set up ShadowFS. Novell CIFS and Novell Samba cannot be installed on the same server.
