Re: Stopping Backup/Archive Netware
We have had Novell servers crash if you do the unload dsmc while there
is ADSM activity going on. The control C never seems to work for us.
We always would cancel the session from the ADSM server...then
eventually the session would clear up from Novell.
We have often done unload dsmc to refresh the schedule or for other
reasons, successfully..when there is no ADSM activity such as a backup
or restore going on.
