I have Netware 6.5 with sp2. When I installed sp2 in put backin SMSSTART
which makes my backup run slow (7 hours with SMSstart ... 2 hours
without). Because I recently installed Novell Cluster Services
(excellent product) I had to convert all of my volumes to NSS (so no
traditional volumes).

I use Arcserve 11 on a Win2K server to backup the Novell servers that run
NWAgent as the client softwar.

If I unload Volsms and type SMSstop, the backups work fast again. Do I
need these for anything? I'm particularly concerned about VOLSMS.
