Draft

Draft Volume Copy Utility wiki page.

This page captures some references for running VCU. VCU is provided with late model versions on Netware (such as NW6.5SP7), and is a tool for converting TFS ("traditional file system") volumes to NSS volumes, to get the advantages of fast loading, larger volume size, and updated tools. There are a few applications that do not enjoy working with NSS, but for most environments, NSS volumes will be preferred.

As mentioned in TID 10020279, this is not an "in-place" conversion. It requires free disk space for the new NSS partition equal to or greater than the size of the data on the traditional volume being converted. It is a copy utility, not a conversion utility.

Quick Start

VCU is invoked from the Netware console prompt. This screen shot shows the usage information displayed when VCU is invoked without parameters.
