The issue is not whether ADSM will restore the long names.  It will.
The problem is that the name you are presented under the Netware client
is an 8.3 name and bears little resemblance to the file name the user
gave you.

The two previous times this issue has come up in the list, IBM has
failed to provide a solution or even acknowledge a problem.  Do people
just not have data on Novell Netware?  Is this an unreasonable request?
