8.1.2 Archiving over the Network
The recommended location for a Windows client user’s archive is on his or her local workstation. Creating an archive on a network drive is supported only if the Novell Map Network Drive feature of the Novell Client is used to map a network drive from the user’s workstation to a NetWare server where the archive is located. Other configurations for archiving to network locations are not supported.


Can someone explain to me the reasoning? I would like to understand why it is a bad practice.
We have a lot of Archive concerns and wanted to get our users to standardize on a common location. were getting ready to force a path to a Microsoft Share using UNC Path. Now this sounds Bad, especially since None of our Clients have Novell Client on the PC's.
