A volume is a share
Your client connect to netware using netware client for windows , right ?
that mean : your netwarre server act as a file-server and a auth server.
You can do that with samba4, but it's not recommended.
it's better to separate file-server and auth-server.
In your example : a VM with the AD (sysvol) server and a other server with
your share (volume).
When I startd my job, our file-server was a netware 3.11 (2000-2001).
And I migrate from this server to a samba 2.2.x.
so it's a big migration.
