I have a Linux OES server installed and have an NSS pool and volume on
the server and want to back up the server and the NSS volumes.

We use Legato Networker to back up our Netware and other clients here
so I installed the Legato Linux client on this server. It can see the
backup server fine and I can manage the backup server using NWadmin.

NWbackup will allow me to backup the Linux part of the OES server but
the NSS pool and volume is unrecognised as a file system and so can't
be backed up. The NSS volume is fully functioning and is accessible
from a workstation.

What is the procedure for backing up NSS pools/volumes when they sit
on a Linux OES box?
