26.1 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.
