This tip is intended for administrators / users of OES

Problem:

Command migfiles throwing “nbackup: Unable to retrieve the Target Service Name list from xx.xx.xx.xx” error.

Solutions:

Scenario: You are trying to migrate the data from NetWare 5.1 SP8 server to OES2.

When the NetWare system boots it will not load TSA500.nlm by default. It needs to be done manually. Without loading this nlm, if you execute migfiles command on the OES server, you will end up with the following error:

nbackup: Unable to retrieve the Target Service Name list from xx.xx.xx.xx <ip address of the source server>
nbackup: Connection denied
nbackup: Error while reading from archive

Manually load TSA500 from the netware console load TSA500 command. Verify whether it is running by executing m TSA500 command.

Now run migfiles command on the OES server. It will start copying the data from NetWare to OES.

Example:

Before loading TSA500 on the NetWare 5.1 SP8 server, migfiles command run from OES server.

systst-ts-165:~ # migfiles -ns 164.99.162.143 -iv NSS -V NSS
Enter the username (e.g cn=admin,o=mycompany)
for the server 164.99.162.143: cn=admin,o=novell
Enter cn=admin,o=novell password:
Enter the username (e.g cn=admin,o=mycompany)
for the server 164.99.162.165: cn=admin,o=novell
Enter cn=admin,o=novell password:
---
nbackup: Unable to retrieve the Target Service Name list from 164.99.162.143
nbackup: Connection denied
nbackup: Error while reading from archive

After loading TSA500 on the Netware 5.1 SP8 server, migfiles command is successful.

systst-ts-165:~ # migfiles -ns 164.99.162.143 -iv NSS -V NSS
Enter the username (e.g cn=admin,o=mycompany)
for the server 164.99.162.143: cn=admin,o=novell
Enter cn=admin,o=novell password:
