29.1 Using Novell Storage Management Services

Novell® Storage Management Services™ (SMS) provide backup, restore, and data migration services for NSS volumes. For information, see the following:

Encrypted NSS volumes store user data in encrypted format on the NSS volume, yet work transparently with most applications, NLM™ programs, and backup utilities that currently work with NSS.

SMS backs up and restores compressed files in their compressed state. It does not compress uncompressed files for backup; they are stored and restored in their uncompressed state.
