NSS disk space lost is back

Hi all: One of my servers is again showing a problem with an NSS volume where the amount of space OES thinks the volume has used is grossly more than the actual amount stored on the volume. The server is running OES2 sp3 and is up-to-date with patches. Currently over 40 GB of disk space usage is unaccounted. OES says the volume has 90 GB used, while it really only have about 50 GB of data stored. I can fix this by a simple dis/re-mount of the volume but this must be done at night, and of course does not SOLVE the underlying problem, of which I have no idea.

I have posted about this before but was unable to come to a resolution. So, anyone seen this issue? Have a fix? Thanks, Chris.

only thing I don't think I can see mention to on your previous thread is whether you have run a check on your NSS pool

you want to look at 16.2.3 which is all about pool verify, metadata and so on (that's if you havn't already done this)

Novell Documentation

does linux see any free space if you run the df command, or is it just the NSS / NCP / OES tools that show the wrong amount of available space

Could you elaborate a little more as to what you mean when you say that OES reports 90 GB

Which tools are you using (NRM, iManager, NSSMU, Novell Client)
I'm assuming this is NSS?

If Using Novell Client, which client are you using?

What are your volume attributes?
What's the purgeable space?
