NLM supporting NetWare 3.x, 4.x, 5.x and 6.x.

This software is an NLM running on Novell NetWare. NetWare versions 3.x, 4.x, 5.x and 6.x are fully supported. Low CPU utilization means that the server is responsive during all resize operations. All resize operations are interruptible ensuring that an operation can be stopped at any time. Resize volumes, volume segments, delete or merge segments, rename or delete volumes.

Very fast and reliable.

Minimize server down time by only dismounting the volume being resized. No need to reboot the server. Just remount the volume and continue server operation. Users do not need to be logged off. Maximum resize performance by only moving the data that needs to be moved to resize a volume. An extensive volume analysis is performed before a volume resize ensuring data integrity. High performance caching algorithms ensure that any size volume can be resized quickly.

Dismounts only the volume being resized.

Only the volume being resized is dismounted. The server continues to function normally during the volume resize. Server utilization stays low, typically under 1%. After a resize the server does not need to be rebooted. Just remount the volume and continue normal server operation.

Resize NetWare volumes larger or smaller.

Full support for resizing volumes and volume segments. Resize volumes larger or smaller. The software will calculate and display the minimum and maximum possible volume size allowing easy resizing.

Supports resizing of individual segments.

Supports the selection of a specific segment for resizing. Resize each segment larger or smaller. The software will move data between segments, if necessary, to maximize resize options.

Supports segment deletion.

Supports deleting individual segments without data loss. Specify a segment size of zero, and the software will move all data blocks from the specified segment to free space on the other segments. Once the data move is complete the segment will be removed from the volume table.

Supports partition mirroring and multi-segment volumes.

Full support for low level NetWare I/O features such as spanned (multi-segment) volumes and Mirroring. Full support for hardware and software arrays (all RAID levels).

Extensive volume analysis similar to VREPAIR but with a GUI.

To ensure maximum data integrity, an extensive volume is analyzed before any modifications to a volume are performed. Detects redirected blocks, broken mirrors, missing volume segments. Scans the FAT tables detecting all kinds of errors including cross-linked files, file size mismatches, and missing data blocks. Analyzes the directory tables checking each file, directory and name space for errors.

Defragments the primary and secondary directory tables once the resize is complete.

Volume resize operations require moving some of the volume data tables. If this tables are not written to a volume in the proper locations, then volume performance will decrease. This software will perform a complete defragment of the Primary and Secondary Directory Tables after a resize is complete.

Rename or delete volumes.

NetWare's install.nlm or nwconfig.nlm will not rename multi-segment volumes. Use this software for full volume control. Rename or delete volumes.
