Novell eDirectory 8.8 for Linux
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2)
Novell Open Enterprise Server (Linux based)
Novell NSS file system


SMS backups and restores of nss volumes on OES2 Linux appeared to work fine, but on restore, none of the trustee assignments for the nss volumes would be there. The tape software does not matter. If the trustee assignment is given to the directory then the directory is backed up, then deleted and restored, the trustee assignments would be missing. There were no errors in the tape software logs indicating a problem restoring trustees. This problem only happened after updating to edirectory 8.8 sp2. The problem could not be duplicated on previous versions of edirectory.
