NSS on OES Error

Hello All,

Afetr installing a sled10sp1 with OES2 + eDir + NSS + ... etc
when trying to create an NSS pool/volume
I receive the following error message :
"
The selected segment is not available. Select pool segments from free
space on an unpartitioned device or an EVMS-managed device.
"

while my disk is partitionned with the following schema (see fig a-1)
http://www.novell.com/documentation/oes2/inst_oes_lx/index.html?page=/documentation/oes2/inst_oes_lx/data/b99qwkx.html#bbuvljo

I do not understand, I made nearly the same in a VM machine and it's
working fine.

thanks for your help,
Pascal

Re: NSS on OES Error

That doco link does not seem to be accurate as I tried it and it does not
work for me. The best way I found to be working well is that you should
have two separate disk-- one for the native linux file system and one
non-partitioned for NSS. If you duplicate this in VM, essentially you will
have a /dev/sda and /dev/sdb/. On physical machines, I have a hardware RAID
where I create a mirror on my first 2 disk and create a RAID5 on all the
remaining disks. This setup works flawlessly every time. When you finish
the installation with OES2, open a terminal and type "nssmu", then it works
like NetWare. Make sure you do not partition anything on the second disk.

Re: NSS on OES Error

thank you Rab,
indeed you're right, that's what I did with my VM and work perfectly,
'cause I added the second disk after installing SLES (using add device)

Do you have any idea if an NTFS partition would be "admit" on the disk
I know this might look strange, but we need it..
