NSS OES, Apache, Sybase

hello

we have some strange problems accessing files on a NSS OES Volume (OES
SP2). We have one partition formatted with Reiser and one with NSS.

first:
Apache: when we set the Document-Root to a NSS-Directory, Apache can't
access the document root (whereas it works anywhere on the Reiser
partition when the access-rights are set).
We did set in ConsoleOne all rights for the Directories in question to
the user wwwrun2 (this is the user Apache is configured to run with).
Also we logged in on the OES-machine and set the directories rights-flags
to "world".
Nothing helps.

second:
Sybase iAnywhere SQL-Server: sybase uses a database file (i.e. webdb.db).
Even when logged in as root-user on the oes-machine, Sybase won't start
if the db-file is on the NSS partition. Access rights is definitly no
issue as we can copy the file around.
Again, when the db-file is placed on the Reiser partition, everything
works.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Andrej

Re: NSS OES, Apache, Sybase

You have to use the " EnableSendfile Off " directive in your apache
configration. The reason, as I understand it, is, that the NSS volume
is considered a 'remote filesystem'.

I personally don't have any experience with sybase, but i can't see any
reason to put the database on an NSS volume. Personally i consider it
'unstable', but this could be influenced by my experiences with it in
beta and first release phase.
