Can Not Cluster Enable Storage Pool

3 Node cluster running NCS 1.8, NetWare 6.5 SP5, NWLIB6G, NW65OS5A. I
have several clustered volumes that work fine.

But, I can not create a new cluster enabled pool with iManager or NRM.
iManager says the server received an invalid handle. NRM does not error,
but the task never creates the NSS pool. I can see the new LUN from all 3
nodes. Have run cluster scan for new devies.

Errors seen on logger screen:
CLUSTER-<INFO.-<210>: Maybe not shared err=1
CLUSTER-<INFO.-<209>: Cluster Enable error= 1 from=2
Error cluster enabling the NSS pool
MM_INVALID_OBJECT

Any ideas?

Thanks,

No sure what might be the reason here. The pool is marked shareable for
clustering?

In addition to the patches you have applied, you also have the
n65nss5a.exe patch. Try applying that and then retry the operation.

Re: Can Not Cluster Enable Storage Pool

Ues NSSMU.

Create the LUN on the shared storage, then the partition, then lastly
the pool. Once created you can use NSSMU to mark it shareable or try
using iMangler again.

I always use NSSMU as it is far quicker...

Re: Can Not Cluster Enable Storage Pool

Thanks. I must be missing something - How can you mark it shareable with
NSSMU v3.24.01? I can not find any such option in that interface.

FWIW, I installed N65NSS5A and still have the same problem .

Re: Can Not Cluster Enable Storage Pool

Tim's got it right. I was able to share the pool with NSSMU (hit F6 in
device mgmt) and then I used iManager to configure my clustered volume
resource.

Thanks Tim!!

When looking at the pool in NSSMU look at the menu at the bottom ofthe
screen, there's a funtion key to mark it shareable for clustering.
Can't remember off my head which one it is.

What, the NRM console window you have open when reading the newsgroups was
locked up?

(grins, ducks, and rolls)

My copy, BTW, doesn't show the key, but I don't have NCS loaded on that
machine.

Was at a location where I didn't have access to any Novell boxes 😞

Sorry, I was misstaken. It's not done on the pool but rather on the device.
Select the device in question and hit F6 to Share it.

I'll give you credit, but I couldn't resist teasing you.

And I missed that it was the device screen, also, though I checked
partitions, pools, and volumes.
