what are servername_NW65OS and -NW65PROD volumes?

After patching our NW65SP8 server recently, it seems we have acquired some new volumes that aren't accessible under normal circumstances. Does anybody know what these are for or what they do? Are they permanent mount points for the installation CDs? If so, do we need them? Can we delete them?
servername_NW65OS
servername_NW65PROD

Thanks.

They aren't mount points. They are simply eDirectory Volume objects,
that represent the real volumes on a server in the directory.

No.

Yes.

Thanks Massimo. That question has bothered me for years. Good to have an answer at last.
