Have a server that was crashing, as in both pools would deactivate,
whenerver anyone tried to access a particular ZIP file located in a volume
on one of the pools. Finally managed to delete the problem file (good ol
DOS), but am now worried about the state of my server's NSS pools.

Server is running Netware 6.5sp7. It was migrated from a physical server to
a VM instance running on a VMWare ESX 3.5 box several weeks ago.

My question is, if I run NSS /poolrebuild on both the SYS and DATA pools on
this problem server, is the server essentially offline to any and all users
until the rebuild is complete? Or can a rebuild be carried out on a "live"

Just want to know if I need to schedule this operation for the wee hours of
the morning.
