I initially installed an OES server's /boot, /root and swap partitions
to be managed by LVMS thinking I could set the unpartitioned space to be
managed by EVMS and then create my NSS volumes. I believe this is
incorrect as I cannot see the unpartitioned space (which I set up EVMS
to manage) in nssmu. Am I correct or is something else wrong?

That said, should I follow the procedures outlined in the 'nss file
system administration guide for OES documentation, section titles 'c.3.1
mounting your system device with EVMS ' or would I be better off
re-installing the server?

If I re-install and definitely when I install my next OES server, what
is the recommended installation/configuration procedures I should follow
to use hardware RAID5 and still be able to create NSS volumes?
