I am trying to create a volume and pool in OES on SUSE via IManager
2.5.
I tried to create a volume and pool then click 'next', but it comes
back
to the same screen.asking for the new name for the volume or pool.
Can
anyone help us with this ? Thanks in advance

If you are attempting to create NSS volumes on free space on the same
disk
as / or /boot, then you need to make sure you installed EVMS at
install
time. If so, take a look at:

If you have a separate drive on which you are putting the NSS volumes,
you
might try using nssmu at the command line.

we had gret difficulty in this. the evm/lvm method works well on ide
but
didn't work very well (actually not at all) on our IBMx345. we
partitioned
the raid to two logical drives (10G and the rest). NSS can see two
seperate
drives and can quite happily use the second drive for NSS. NSS runs
like a
dog tho.

Formatting the second drive as Ext3 runs sooo much sweeter. It can beconfigured as a "ncp mount" so could be useful for you if you have all
your
disk in one logical drive.
