    My organization is currently using Netware 6.5. We need to expand our Groupwise storage pool (currently 200 GB) by 200 GB. Unfortunately, we're not well-versed in Novell and we don't know for certain what the maximum pool size is for Netware 6.5. The system is left over from a previous net admin and I've been combing through the Netware Administrator's Handbook, but I'm not finding it. If anyone knows this information or can direct me to it, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Appears how to configure NSS volumes is in chapter 8 of the admin guide

    Just make sure the 200gig you add is raided for fault tolerance.

    8 tebibyte/terabytes is the limit for NSS so you have no issues regarding this.

    I would also recommend you do not span volumes. Losing one span you lost it all. Better to back everything up and recreate the NSS volume using all available space.

    Glad to use my old CNE knowledge. Not much demand these days :)

    They like it around here if you mark your post as solved. Best of luck!

    Not too many Netware people left around here. I haven't touched it now in a couple of years. Your best bet is to post on the Novell or Cool Solutions forums to get answers related to Netware.
