The NetWare® Traditional File System provides legacy storage and file system management for NetWare 6.5.
The Novell Storage Services™ File System (NSS) provides the primary system for storage and file management for NetWare. The NetWare operating system and its extensions are installed on an NSS pool and volume, named sys. For information, see NW 6.5 SP8: NSS File System Administration Guide.
IMPORTANT:You can optionally use the Traditional volumes on the same server with your NSS volumes. However, if you are planning to implement Apple* File Protocol (AFP), Network File System (NFS), or Common Internet File System (CIFS) for this server, you must use the NSS file system, not the Traditional file system for your system volume and for any data volumes that use these protocols. For information, see NW 6.5 SP8: AFP, CIFS, and NFS (NFAP) Administration Guide.
To upgrade your Traditional volumes to NSS volumes, see NW 6.5 SP8: NSS File System Administration Guide.
