Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux


Unable to migrate NCP volume from OES2 linux to NSS volume on OES2 linux using migfiles
Cannot open data stream
Error: nbackup: Received error: 0xfffdffcd ((libtsafs.so 6.50.0 306) A data stream cannot be opened.) from NWSMTSOpenDataSetForBackup


For NCP source volumes be sure to use the -PX parameter followed by the linux path to the NCP volume.  ie. migfiles -s -PX /usr/novell/vol1 -v VOL1.

Additional Information

migfiles defaults to NSS for the source volume.  Since NCP volumes are on a POSIX filesystem, -P must be used to specify POSIX for the source volume.
