    2.5.
    I tried to create a volume and pool then click 'next', but it comes
    back
    to the same screen.asking for the new name for the volume or pool.
    Can

    If you are attempting to create NSS volumes on free space on the same
    disk
    as / or /boot, then you need to make sure you installed EVMS at
    install
    time. If so, take a look at:

    If you have a separate drive on which you are putting the NSS volumes,
    you
    might try using nssmu at the command line.

    we had gret difficulty in this. the evm/lvm method works well on ide
    but
    didn't work very well (actually not at all) on our IBMx345. we
    partitioned
    the raid to two logical drives (10G and the rest). NSS can see two
    seperate
    drives and can quite happily use the second drive for NSS. NSS runs
    like a
    dog tho.

    Formatting the second drive as Ext3 runs sooo much sweeter. It can beconfigured as a "ncp mount" so could be useful for you if you have all
    your
    disk in one logical drive.
