Create new volume results in -601 error NDS object not exist

I have created new pool and volume on my OES server. When I created the pool and volume I saw an error -601 NDS object does not exist. How do I get my new volume to show up as an object in eDirectory?

Assuming neither the pool nor volume NDS objects have been created i'd start checking the "NSS identity". By default an user object named "servernameadmin" (if the servername is "FS1" the object's name would be "FS1admin") with supervisory rights the the server's context gets created when NSS gets initially configured. Further on this object serves as identity for stuff such as creating volumes. There's no referential integrity for this object, so if it gets deleted / renamed / moved (or it doesn't have the needed rights or the server object gets moved...) the behaviour you encounter would be expected. In such cases you could simply rerun the NSS config workflow in yast.

You were correct, my "servernameadmin" objects were missing. With the help of another person, I was able to find and run the NSS config in yast which did solve the problem. Thanks for your help.

An easy one. Often overseen as these service accounts normally get deleted by persons other than those who created them.
