Yep! Tried it on my old NW4.11 server, but stopped because of extreme bad performance of the backup. As I recall, the backup was slowed down 10 times.
The local representative couldn't help, but my own theory was, that the Agent Accelerator was bound to TCP but the backup used IPX.

Has anybody tried using Veritas' open file manager?

We are using Veritas Backupexec with wonderful results.  We use a cron job to shut down the POA agents during backup and then to restart the agents after backup.

Has "saved my bacon" countless times....

Looking for info on what backup software seems to be
"the best" for Novell 5.x and GroupWise 5.x combinations.

What have you experienced ? Arcserve 7 ., Backup Exec or
some other option ?

I've been using Arcserve for 5 years and this latest version
is not that great. Support has been terrible. 24hrs+ for a return call.

Thanks for your help.
