nss-2.70-5008

I started getting this error over the last week or so (nss-2.70-5008 and
5009). I found one of the drives had 15 media errors. I replaced the
drive and I am still getting these errors. The pool size is ~680gb.
Researching this error looks like I need to do perform a pool rebuild.
Is that correct? Also, any estimate on how long this would take? This
is our main production server. It is also the master of the tree. I
could possibly get another server setup to replace this one.
suggestions?

Netware 6 with sp3.

Re: nss-2.70-5008

Your old NSS code has severe bugs. You must apply nw6sp5 and nw6nss5c,
then and only then do

nss /poolrebuild /purge

on all your pools. Make sure you have tested backups first, just in case.

After service pack and nss5c should I run the poolverify first? Any
estimate on how long this will take to run poolverify and poolrebuild?
680gb pool.

No point in running a verify, no. The rebuild will take between 2
minutes and 8 hours, depending on your hardware.

one of my volumes in pool is reporting a negative number for purgeable
files. After getting sp and nss5 updates applied do I run the poolrebuild
twice, once without the purge switch and then again with the purge switch
or will a poolrebuild /purge kill two birds with one stone?

Just once will be fine.

sys was also getting nss errors
when i ran the install for sp5 I received an error message install - file
or directory sys:webapps\emframe\* cannot be removed.
Error code 160 (A0 hex)
so i ran a poolrebuild on the sys volume and rebooted server after
rebooting I applied sp5 again. I then received the following error
another error during sp install - an attempt to create a record for
product imanager in the product database
failed. Error:2. (nwconfig-6-354). I received this error for other
products as well (nici, nls, nmas). When I pressed enter to continue the
sp finished liked normal and server was rebooted. I applied the nss patch
and ran the poolrebuild on the data pool. It ran and found about 60mb of
corrupted files.
Question I have is that when I go into nwconfig and choose
view/configure/remove installed products the screen is blank. Any ideas
on this one? Is products.dat corrupted?

corrupt or flagged RO, or Btrieve is failing to load. See if nwmkde is
loaded, if not load it manually and see what errors you get in th
elogger screen.

If it's loaded OK, check products.dat is not RO. Ifit's OK then it's
probablyt corrupt, delete it. You can copy one over from a good server
with the same products installed, or use prodsync to generate a new one.
