OES - NSS - GroupWise domain error

I'm writing here becuase I am pretty convinced this a an OES issue. I
can take it to the GW group if need be. In C1 on my windows workstation
I'm creating a secondary domain, all is fine until it goes to put down
the files in the path (OES/NSS) I've specified. It creates the directory
structure but when it goes to create the wpdomain.dc and wphost.dc files
it fails with a write error (GW 8200, generic file IO error). It leaves
a zero length file behind. I cannot do anything to the file until I
disconnect and reconnect to the server or delete it via the linux
command line.

The server is OES with patches applied and the volume is NSS on its own
disk, no EVMS involved. Aside from the GW domain creation I can write,
edit and delete files to the same potential database location without
issue. I've tried this from a couple of different C1 installs to make
sure that it isnt the issue.

Any ideas?

Re: OES - NSS - GroupWise domain error

OK, so I've not figured out the problem, but I've worked around it. I
created the domain structure locally and moved it to the server and
updated the path info the C1 objects. The server now has no trouble R/W
to the files. It was only on creation. Very strange.

Re: OES - NSS - GroupWise domain error and namcd

We were getting the same thing.

Our config is NSS vols on own disk, using evms since it's required for NSS.

Our GW install would bomb out creating the PO with an I/O error 0x8200.
If subsequently, we tried to manually create the PO in C1, we could
not browse the NSS volumes! i.e. when trying to specify the PO
directory, we would have to type it in manually. The browse pop-up
would not display any files or folders in the NSS volumes.

We ended up installing the entire GW system on the SYS volume which is
in /usr/novell/sys--not an NSS volume.

However, now we have a bigger problem...

After rebooting, namcd will not run (no error messages in
/var/log/messages) so no usrs are found by apache or anything else. I
should probably post this as another thread.
