    NSS will not start

    Just set up a new OES9 SP2 linux server. Everything went ok, but when I
    went into iManager to create an nss volume, it said nss wasn't running.
    (thought that was supposed to be installed by default??)

    In Yast, system, nss it says it needs "Novell Backup Services SMS" installed
    first. When I try to install SMS it says it is already installed, do I want
    to re-install. If I say "yes", it says the rpms for SMS need to be
    installed. It starts to read package information and then gives a "The
    installation of SMS failed to install all required RPMs" error.

    Anyone have an idea of what I did wrong and how can I get nss running?

    Thanks

    Matt

    Hi,
    how have you set up your Linux Partitions? Do you use EVMS and have you done
    the Steps described in Documentation?
    You need to "move" the boot partition to /dev/evms/boot and afterwards you
    can create NSS Volumes by NSSMU.

    The next thing you should verify is, that your User is in the same Linux
    Workstation Group as your Linux Server.
    And your User should be Linux User Enabled

    After this you can manage NSS Volumes by iManager

    regards Christian

    I have just done a full install of OES 9 and I installed NSS when I did the
    install. Linux partitions are all default install. Last time I installed
    this on a test server everthing worked fine. Something happened on this
    install that messed up nss.

    I'll try your suggestions and get back.
