I created an OES2 VM and attached an LVMS volume as an NSS partition. It appears in my NRM as:

Description	Value
File system path	/media/nss/LSYNCSTOR
File system shadow path	n/a
File system type	NSS
NCP volume ID	2
Status	mounted, online, NSS, salvageable
Capacity	340.78 GB
I have rsync running in stand-alone (daemon) mode and configured thusly:

gid = nobody
uid = nobody
read only = no
use chroot = no
transfer logging = true

log format = %h %o %f %l %b
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid
lock file = /var/run/rsync.lock

hosts allow = 192.168.x.xx 192.168.x.xx 192.168.x.xx 192.168.x.xx  
slp refresh = 300

    path = /media/nss/LSYCSTOR
    comment = Backup of Branch Servers
I installed rsync.nlm version 2.6.3 on a netware server and I am testing using the following command

SYS:/SYSTEM/rsync/rsync.nlm -ravz --port=873 --volume=SYS: /etc LSYNC::backups
I am unable to stat or write. I get errors indicating permission denied. Of course, rsync is not supported outside Branch Office so I may not call Novell for help.

I do wish to preserve NSS permissions and owners for these filesystems, but will settle for a scripted backup of them if need be.

Any suggestions as to what I might look at next would be deeply appreciated.
