Restore Netware data to Windows server

Recently implemented NetBackup 5.1 Server for Windows 2003. Currently backing up Netware 5.1 servers in Target configuration and 6 Windows 2003 servers.

Is it possible to restore the contents of a Netware 5.1 target (volume) to a Windows file server?

Re: Restore Netware data to Windows server

Also, when backing up the Netware server using the Target configuration method, the estimated data size is vastly underestimated, i.e. we are backing up about 200GB, but it estimates approx. 4.5GB of data. During the backup the 200GB is backed up.

As anyone seen this happen before and know of any fix?

If i'm not wrong, cross platform recovery is not supported.
Guys, correct me if that's a mistake in my statement.

Not too sure why for Q2......

Coming from an organization that just retired it's last Netware server a couple weeks ago, I can tell you for a fact that it's impossible.

and why i said is not supported is because of different filesystem Smiley Wink

Hi guys,

Thanks for the responses and help. I can do it with BackupExec, so I might revert to using that for our data migration, or just good old ncopy.

Thanks,
