Portlock Storage Manager is designed to minimize the management, setup, installation, and reconfiguration time for Novell NetWare 3.12 - 6.5 servers. Copy, create, clone, image, restore, and resize DOS, NetWare and NSS partitions and volumes. Image and restore Windows FAT32 and NTFS partitions. Disaster recovery of failed servers is very fast and dramatically simplified - no booting OS required.

Server-to-Server Migration

Portlock Storage Manager's server backup and restore features support images stored on disk files, CD/DVD, TCP/IP communication links, FTP and Web servers, and SCSI tape drives. Our third generation imaging technology supports streaming the very fastest SCSI tape drives, utilizing high-performance communications over TCP/IP for server-to-server migration.

Portlock Storage Manager can migrate a server using TCP/IP from the old server to the new server or create an image file on disk or SCSI tape. Nothing needs to be installed on the new server to begin a full-system migration. Boot Portlock Storage Manager from DOS and start the restore.

Using accurate system images, this bare-metal migration results in a very high-speed migration, duplicating all attributes to the new server, while minimizing hardware hassles. Servers can even be cloned across continents using TCP/IP.

What's Next?

In a forthcoming release of Portlock Storage Manager, the Portlock Deployment console will be released supporting PXE, virtual floppies and automated deployment (installation) of servers. These are the new features that Chris Stone and Doug Knight from Novell demonstrated at BrainShare as part of the president's keynote speech.


"Portlock has a great set of NetWare management tools with an advantage of not only supporting traditional file systems, but also supporting NSS file systems, so you can have multiple images of servers and deploy them."

-Doug Knight, Novell Vice President, Infrastructure Products

Novell depends on Portlock Storage Manager and ships our image & restore technology as part of the Digital Airlines NetWare 6.5 Demonstration CD:
