Mirror with multiple NSS partitions

Hi All,

I'm doing a SAN-to-SAN hardware migration using the mirroring technique. All is well on one site, where I have a simple 1:1:1:1 relationship between LUN:NSS Partition:NSS Pool:NetWare Volume.

However, I have one data set which refuses to mirror. I have a single LUN, 3 x NSS Partitions, 1 NSS Pool and 1 NetWare Volume in this data set. When I hit the F3 key in NSSMU to start the mirror, I get the NSS error code 20896, which seems to be a "General Sharing" error.

I cannot for the life of me work out why this partition won't mirror following the same procedure for the other 30-odd data sets I've already mirrored.

Any suggestions please? I was hoping to get this last data set migrated tonight if I can get a fix .......

Re: Mirror with multiple NSS partitions

Is the LUN holding the 3 partitions flagged Shareable for Clustering? Is the one you are trying to mirror it to?

Sorry for not updating this earlier......

Basically, we rebooted the node and everything worked as expected when we tried the mirror process again. Murphy's Law of Computing I guess.
