nssvol not supported by kernel

Hi,

I installed SLES 9. Setup NSS and mounted it at /home and started adding
users. All was well then I did an update through Red Carpet. Now trying
to mount /home the message is "mount: fs type nssvol not supported by
kernel".

SLES 9 SP2 arrived a couple of days ago. I wiped the server and
reinstalled from the new CDs. After a Red Carpet update mounting /home
gives the same message.

How do I get my home back?

Thanks
Bob Crandell

What does the following show?
grep nss /proc/filesystems
It should be:
nsspool
nodev nssvol
nodev nssadmin

Does the nss init script run during boot?

I had the same problem on a OES SP1 server yesterday. Installed some
patches with red-carpet, rebooted and the NSS Pool and Volumes where gone.

It took some time to figure out the actual problem, but i found the
solution:
The NSS rpm is broken up into some peaces now.

I'm new to OES and the rug patch services. Doesn't it care about
dependencies like YOU does?

Just install the following packages via red-carpet or rug:
- km_nss
- novell-evms-snapins (read the info text!)


Restart NSS or reboot the server and it should work again.


Cant tell about your SLES9 SP2 issue, though.

Good luck,

Grep returns nothing.
modprobe nsspool
returns module nsspool not found. The same with the others.

Rug and Red Carpet check on dependencies. They must have missed this one.
Those 2 packages are installed.

This happened with SP1 also but when SP2 showed up I didn't pursue it any
more. I figured it was fixed in SP2. So naive.

Ok. It's working now. I did a clean install ... again, and ran an update
with rug instead of Red Carpet. I'm guessing Red Carpet is buggy.

Thanks guys.
