I did a server migration over the weekend: NetWare 6.0 to NW6.5,
physical to VMware, about 220GB of data. I did two preliminary file
copies ahead of the actual migration, but the migration itself still
took at least twelve hours. It seemed to break down to six hours of
copying trustee assignments, four hours of migrating files and 2-4 hours
of "synchronizing files and folders".

Is this normal?
