Hi... Some of you will probably chuckle at this.

Today, I went around cleaning up some stuff on our cluster servers. I emptied the trash on one of the servers and noticed it said it was deleting files in /var/opt/novell... (something) didn't really pay attention. I go to load our central cluster iprint page and nothing happens. I then go to the mnt point where the iprint volume is mounted only to find it's empty. I unload the resource, reload the resource....still nothing.

I don't know exactly what's going on, but the file structure is there.

In other words, /(mntpoint)etc/opt/novell/iprint/conf and /(mntpoint)var/opt/novell/iprint are both there but there are no files in the directories.

Two questions...

Can I recreated the print manager database somehow? Perhaps from the existing printer agents in eDirectory?

Is there a way to recover deleted files in linux on an ext2/3 partition?

Thanks for any replies in advance. I'm kind of at a loss here.
