    Syncsort Backup Express. Relatively pricey, but you won't regret it.

    Do you know how Syncsort would handle an NSS filesystem on Linux? i.e.

    does it backup the trustee assignments and nss attributes properly?

    I'm not sure, as I have no NSS on Linux yet. Syncsort is (I think) the

    only vendor that currently supports OES, so if it's possible to backup

    NSS properly on Linux, they will do it, no doubt.

    Yes, it will.

    Confirmed with Syncsort.

    The backup is done through the TSA as with NW.
