nssmu

I've just installed my first OES11 server, running on a vmware virtual server. I've now tried adding another disk, running rescan-scsi-bus.sh make it appear in the list of devices using nssmu, however I can not add pools or volumes using nssmu, I press the INS key but nothing happens. I can create pools and volumes quite happily using imanager but I've always prefered nssmu for it's simplicity and speed.

Am I missing something, can't nssmu be used anymore?

Many Thanks

Paul

Did you try INIT first?

Yes I've initialised the drive, even now having set them all up in Imanager I can't use the INS, the DEL key and all others work fine.

Works fine for me on my test OES11 server. My NSSMU is version 4.14a build 4018 , not that that should make a difference.

Also ... have you checked whether your INS key is actually working?

How are you running nssmu? On a console directly the server itself or via VNC or other remote tool?

Had the same problem, it doesn´t do anything but go back to the empty pool-overview.

The problem only happens, when doing this via Putty, on the serverterminal directly i had no problem anymore!

Yes, this is due to the default funtionkey setting in Putty: that sends an ESC[function] instead of the needed F3. Just change the setting to VT100+/Linux mode (within the keyboard settings) and it should work again. The right mode depends on which key you need (VT100 lets the F1 to F5 work correctly, Linux mode does the other bits IIRC... never checked that exactly)

Cheers,
Willem
