What do you see in iManager? Can you mange the Pool and see the Volumes? – can you mount the Volumes or browse them by UNC?

Here is a excerpt from the Admin Guide on NSS for OES2:

29.3.2 NSS Tools Recognize Only EVMS-Managed Devices
If the Storage plug-in for iManager or NSSMU for Linux does not recognize a device, it might be because NSS recognizes only what the Enterprise Volume Management System (EVMS) recognizes. NSS recognizes hard drives, CD drives, DVD drives, USB drives, and Zip drives that are managed by EVMS. If your hard drive is managed by Linux Volume Management (LVM), it cannot be managed by EVMS, and NSS does not recognize it. For NSS on Linux, whenever you reboot your system, EVMS discovers and mounts the device nodes under /dev/evms/. For example, if you use commands to create and mount a partition at /dev/sdb2/, after the reboot, EVMS discovers and mounts the partition at /dev/evms/sdb2. The iManager Storage plug-in and NSSMU work through EVMS to manage partitions, and this behavior is expected. However, if you create and mount partitions from the command line, your partitions might appear to be lost after a reboot and EVMS discovery. IMPORTANT: If you mount pools from the command line, you must modify your mount point to the partition’s new apparent location under /dev/evms/.
