I agree with you, and wouldn't really want to re-use NW NSS volumes,
also as Joe Doupnik pointed out on the Novell LAN list, there are other
problems with re-using old NW NSS volumes under OES Linux which need to
be addressed, see TID 3529369, as well as your performance related
I was primarily thinking of the area which is currently lightly
documented, or document free, which is existing 32 bit Linux servers,
either SLES9/10/11 with GW on Reiser/EXT3, or OES1/OES2 servers with GW
on NSS, where there is a chance for an upgrade without physical
migration - possibly another scenario for your move GW book !?
1) umount GW volumes
2) trash root partition
3) install new OS
4) mount GW volumes
5) install GW agents and configure
And as Joe Marton also pointed out, with OES Linux we also have the fun
of dropping the server from eDirectory in the process.....
I think it could be very entertaining :-)

Technically yes Simon. So, for a Linux 32bit>Linux 64bit conversion,
this should be fairly simple. For a NW > Linux though, while it will
work, the recommendation is to create a new volume for Linux. There are
many tweaks that are important for Linux, and benchmarks have shown that
the drive is "faster" when created from scratch with all of the
unnecessary options disabled from the beginning, than going back and
making the changes after the fact.

I am no expert on NSS on OES2, but my understanding is that NSS
partitions/volumes are to be on separate partitions/LUNS/disks from the
Linux system, and that it is possible to mount NW NSS volumes on a Linux
so, would it be possible to hose the 32bit OES2 Linux system, install
the 64bit OES in the same space, and mount the NSS volumes? 
or is this just a disaster waiting to happen?
