Move user home directory to new server
I want to move multiple users home direcotry to new server, the only
change is server and volume, there is no change on path.
How can I do this?
I tried NWadmin to modify multiple users, after I put in new volume and
apply the change, the path have been overwirte, and become blank. I tried
to put variable %username or %login_name, they won't pick it up.

You could use UIMPORT for this, or easier SETHOME from the JRB

Pedag...Move User home directories to new volume on same server
We would like to move our USER home directories from one NSS volume to
another NSS volume on the same server. We have used the 3rd party NWCOPY
utility in the past for large inter/intra server file copies and it seems to
work good. Since NWCOPY allows us to pre-copy the data in smaller chunks at
a convenient time and then do a smaller delta/synch copy when the final
cutover is planned, we likely plan on using this utility in combination with
some other utilities like HOMES to change the eDir home directory attributes
and file rights.
Just wanted to get some i...User move with home directories
We are going to do a "massive" user move. Users will be moved from one server to the other. Their home directories will need to be moved as well. How can I do a massuser move with homedirectories. When the home direcotories are moved, and users are in a diffrent containter, the File rights and trustees of the home directories must be changed as well.
Does anyone know a tool that could help us? Thank you.

Content...Move home directories to different server
What is the best way to move users' home directories from NW 5.1/NSS to
a new NW 6.5 server? We are doing no hardware migration, the source
server remains running, I just need to move the users' data out of it.
I tried to use the Novell Server Consolidation Utility to copy few
testing directories to a temporary space on new server. It did it right,
but how can I do the change of users' home directory entries in
eDirectory? There are 4000 user accounts in our network. Is there some
tool for such task or any scripts, examples?

I renamed a NetWare 6.5 sp3 server. Everything seemed to go ok except now
the user home dir attribute in NDS is gone. Is there an easy way to get
this back or is it divide and conquer time.

I am looking at putting my edirectory/netware server behind our
firewall, this will be the first netware box that we've put across.
I am unsure of what I should be doing to my server in order to prepare
this move. Do I need to find out which port numbers we are using?
Thanks for your help.

...Home directory not having same contents after adding user for different server
I add users using the command for all the server I use
eg for server 66 which has opensuse 12.1

Yes you can use...Users refused SSH connection of home directory server.
I have an odd situation when using SSH connections for secure FTP file
access on my NW6.5 servers.
I've got two main data servers. Both are identical in setup: NW6.5SP8/eDir

One server hosts the users' home folders, the other holds data shared across
I have a third data server at a remote campus.
With the server that hosts the user's home folders, I've several accounts
that are not able to connect. The server logs indicate a failed password.

would appreciate if someone can step me through how to achieve above. I
have checked all Novell tid and discussion forum and could not find steps
referring to moving both dns and dhcp servers from a netware 6.0 sp4 server
and to netware 6.5 sp4 server.

That's because it's the same as long as you're moving from NW 5.0 ...Can you move User's Home Directories by Hand?
I have a need to move about 200 user's home directories from a NW5.0
server to and NW6.5 server. I was going to do it this weekend. I was
searching around on Deja.com and it seems a lot of people pay a bundle to
get a utility to do it. Is there anything wrong with just copying the
directories from one server to another and then editing the user objects
through console1 and changing it to the new loc? Obviously it will take
some time, but is there any actual reason or danger invovled in just doing
it this way? Thanks for your help. Hopefully, I can get it done this
