Using the GroupWise dbcopy utility via a NCPFS mount between a SLES11 server and a NetWare 6.5 server fails after several minutes.  Restarting the dbcopy job will also fail.  The failure isn't always in the same spot or on the same file.


NCPFS is no longer maintained and when doing a file copy between a SLES server and a NetWare server, the Novell Client for Linux should be used.
