ok i have 2T of storage via a iscsi san ... i am looking to move all
network files and users home directories to the san .. current server is
nw 6.5 sp4a funning TFS .. i do not have enough room to convert to nss

1 .. can i or should i create seperate pools? ie.. 1 pool for users, 1
pool for shared files .. etc?? and then in those pools create my volumes

2. i was going to backup the current files then restore them to the new
volumes that way they keep their rights and it will be faster then a
file copy .. but the TFS has compression on so those files will be in
"compressed mode" on the new nss volume correct? i can set my backup to
backup compressed files as uncompressed if i need to
