What files are included in a "Server Specific Information" (SSI) backup?


Novell NetWare 4.11

NetWare 5.x

SMS compliant backup


The five server-specific files that are backed up with the SSI option:

Contains server-specific NDS information.  The file is used by INSTALL.NLM to recover from an unplanned volume SYS failure.  This file allows trustee assignments and other NetWare information to be preserved.

A text file containing a list of replicas, including replica types, that the backed up server held at the time of backup.  It also provides a list of other servers that were in the failed server's replica ring.

A text file containing needed information about the server's volumes, including name space, compression, and data migration information, at the time of backup.

The NetWare boot file that loads the NetWare server's disk driver and name spaces and some SET parameters.

The NetWare server executable batch file, located in the NetWare partition of the server's disk, used to load modules and set the NetWare operating system configuration.
