Using DFS split job to move data from NetWare to Linux
Job hangs at 98% complete.
"Volmn status" run on the Netware server console reports status: "Retry Rename Log file"
Attempts to cancel the job fails.


Unload volmn and volsms.
Delete the job logs found in the sys:\system\ directory on the NetWare server.
Make sure there is plenty of disk space available.
Start the job again.

Additional Information

During Split/Move operations, the DFS  creates a log of files that it needs to transfer at a later point of time .
DFS captures these changes in a log file (NW location sys:\\etc\\volmn\\$DFS_<operationID>.log or .py).

"Volmn help" will display the available volmn commandline parameters.  Volmn status will show the operationID for the current jobs.
