Restart NSS Services

Does anyone know if you can restart NSS services on a Linux OES server
without rebooting? The script that loads NSS has the restart/stop
commented out. I'm mounting snapshot drives (from a third party
software) to do offsite backups. The script mounts the SAN snapshot,
rescans the bus, activates the pool and mounts the volumes. At the end
of the backup the script dismounts the volumes, deactivates the pool and
remove the SAN snapshots. The problem I have is that NSS won't release
the pool information without rebooting. When I run the script for the
next server to backup pool will not activate. I don't have the error
message handy but it seems that the problem is due to information on the
preceding Pool is being held in memory or a configuration file.

Lets start by getting the actual error message.

Are you trying /etc/init.d/novell-nss stop?

I don't know what specific SAN stuff you are using... but perhaps using dmsetup remove ? or similar to make the volume disappear.

But I think if you can get some more specific info as to the actual error, we can dig into it further.

No, you can't.

But please elaborate on the problems you're seeing, I don't fully
understand them at this point. Are you saying the pools all have the
same name?

Thanks for the responses. I have started the process of renaming the
pools to make them unique which will solve my problem. The error I was
getting was an NSS error 25867 which is a complaint the the superblock
isn't there. By renaming the pools I avoid the issue. Thanks Again.
