utilities to provide a network connection to a Novell Netware server running the traditional filesystem. Is there any way that this could be used to mount a Netware filesystem attached locally (via a Dell PERC 3/DC controller and PV220S disk enclosure) for data recovery purposes?


it would be completely different code to do this. with mount_ncpfs all fs handling is done by netware.

AFAIK there is no such tool

simple use qemu to run netware possibly directly from that disk and then use virtual network interfaces and mount_ncpfs :)

(re-posting to the list to explain the background to why I'm asking...)

I have a working Netware 5.1 installation which will no longer recognise the VOL2: volume (which is on a RAID5 in the PV220S). I think this is the latest in a long line of problems with the 220S, there's many annoyed users around these parts who have had problems with them).

In short, I can't use Netware to either mount or VRepair the damaged volume, so I have the 4 disk RAID5 set which I can't attach to any other controller (this is the only PERC3/DC I have, which is based on an LSI Logic controller, all the other RAID controllers I have in my Dells are PERC3/Di, which are based on Adaptec controllers and can't recognise the LSI Logic array). I was hoping that maybe Linux or Unix/BSD would have enough NWFS code to be able to attach the volume directly and treat it as a local filesystem rather than being transported across the network via NCP.

Looks like I'm out of luck and will have to settle for the content from the backup tapes I've already restored, and lose the remaining days worth of changes :-(

Cheers,
Gavin
