The OES 2 migration tool, which run on the target OES 2 Linux server, must mount the remote file systems of the source servers in order to obtain information about the source volumes and to copy the specified data to the target server.
For NetWare and OES 1 Linux migrations, the mls and migfiles commands require an NCP mount. They use the ncpmount command to map the remote volume to /var/opt/novell/log/<Project Name>/fs/mnt/source, and then read data from the _admin volume to validate the source path. These commands unmount the file system upon termination. If the process is killed forcibly (kill -9), the mount point remains mounted and must be unmounted by the administrator.
For source NetWare and OES 1 Linux servers, the mls command uses nbackup tool to build the list of trustees.
For Windows migrations, migfiles uses the mount.cifs command to mount the remote Windows share to /tmp/migrate. It then uses rsync to copy the files to the target volume. The remote share is unmounted after the files are copied. If the process is killed forcibly (kill -9), the mount point could possibly remain mounted. If so, it must be unmounted by the administrator.
