Netstorage and Cluster

I have a 2 node cluster that works fine. I had Netstorage working just fine
before I added a second node and moved some data on to the shared storage.
Now when Netstorage is accessed all files that are on the shared storage are
not visible. The login script maps the drive just fine no matter which node
has the storage resource and the name of the mapped directory appears in
Netstorage but it shows no files or directories in that folder. This happens
no matter what node has the resources. All resource that are not shared
remain visible and usable.

What have I done wrong?

Re: Netstorage and Cluster

It sounds like NS is still running as if it were not on a cluster, and
is still talking to one node's IP address not the clustered one.

The relevant documentation for running NS on a cluster is at is at
http://www.novell.com/documentation/nw65/index.html?page=/documentation/nw65/confgenu/data/am0oz45.html

Re: Netstorage and Cluster

Thanks. I read that documentation before I setup NS on the cluster and
followed exactly. I did get it to work by setting up a new Storage Location
and assigning it to the users group in iManager, that way all the files in
that location are available in NS and it works fine.

The problem is that when users login to NS they see all the mappings created
in the their normal login scripts but nothing appears to be in them (there
are lots). They then have to go to the storage locations and navigate to
their files. the question is how can I get the login script to work?

Re: Netstorage and Cluster

I don't know much about NS itself I'm afraid. What are the actual MAP
statements in their login scripts pls? Do they trigger any errors or
appear to be successful?

Re: Netstorage and Cluster

Here's the login script. Works flawlessly in the client but in NS the
hhcluster mappings show nothing.


write "USER "; LOGIN_NAME; " LAST LOGGED IN:"
LASTLOGINTIME
FDISPLAY SYS:login\info.TXT
write "USER "; LOGIN_NAME;
rem PAUSE
map *1:=hh6/sys:
map *2:=hh6/sys2:
map *3:=hh6/sys3:
map *4:=HH6/sys4:
map *5:=HH7/sys:
map *6:=HH7/sys2:
map root h:=hhcluster/data:\work
map root x:=hhcluster/data:\

Re: Netstorage and Cluster

You're mixing up backslashes and forward slashes, and using the bindery
mapping syntax.

You must use either the IP address or the NDS syntax for mapping to
cluster drives. See TID 10027333
