Hi,

My client is running out of space on their data drive (RAID 5). I added
a drive to expand the array. YaST2/Partitioner said NSS couldn't be
expanded. Ok. I'll just copy the 400 GB to another drive and recreate
the volume. Maybe.

Question: Will using rsync or cp -av work? The temporary destination
will be either ext3 or xfs. That is, will all the rights and ownerships
remain on the bigger NSS volume when I copy the data back?

# cat /etc/novell-release
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2.0.3 (x86_64)
VERSION = 2.0.3
PATCHLEVEL = 3
BUILD

# cat /etc/SuSE-release
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86_64)
VERSION = 10
PATCHLEVEL = 3

Thanks
Bob Crandell
