Storage on SLES 10 sp3 OES sp3 box...

I login to iManager (ANY iManager) and go to Storage, then Pools and select a certian server, and it just hangs there. I have to kill the session in the browser, and start over. If I select another server, its all good. I will probably SP4 the sles 10, and reboot one of these weekends. Othewise the server is running, volumes accessible, no issuses at all. Should I be concerned?

    Advice 1:

    DO NOT USE IMANAGER TO DO STORAGE MANAGEMENT! Sorry for shouting, but
    storage management is a low level, critcal activity. You do not want it
    to go "oops" because of some problem in one of the several million lines
    of code of your browser, apache, tomcat, or owcimomd (which is what
    iManager talks to in the end on the final server). Use the local, low
    level, simple tool *on* the server you want to manage, e.g NSSMU.

    As for your issue: openwbem (rcowcimomd status or restart on the problem
    server) on the problem server has a problem. Bad guys say, openwbem *is*
    a problem per se, which Novell has recognized too, and it isn't used any
    more in OES11.

  • Thanks, this fixed the issue. I see the "booked" space on the volumes now...
