NetWare 6.0 Storage Management Services Administration Guide

Novell® Storage Management ServicesTM (SMSTM) is a collection of software programs that provides backup and restore services. These services are performed by a collection of components that are independent of operating systems and hardware.

You can backup SMS Targets such as Novell eDirectoryTM, binderies, the file system, cluster-enabled pools or an individual workstation's hard disk onto a media that can be stored off-site. If you have a hardware failure, natural catastrophe, corrupted data, or incorrectly deleted or changed data, you can recover a previous version of the data.
