I cannot create NCS Cluster Pools.
It looks like some kind of NSS permission problem as the pool is not
added to NDS.
I hope anyone has a reasonable idea. I've already tried some
approaches.

================================================== ========

Configuration:
NCS 1.8.2-33
OES SP2 (Evaluation Version)
iscsi 4.0.1-88.26
on VMware-server-1.0.1-29996

================================================== ========

Using iManager (1st approach):
Storage->Pools->New... (selecting a cluster node)

name: USER

Used Size (MB) Device Name Free Size (MB) Type
(x) 2048 sdb10231 10231 shared
Pool Size:
2048
[x] Cluster Enable on Creation
[x] Mount On Creation

Shared Pool Clustering Parameters:
Virtual Server Name: USER_SRV
CIFS Virtual Server Name: USER_SRV
IP Address: 192.168.1.100

Advertising Protocols:
[x] NCP
[x] CIFS
[ ] AFP

------------------------------------------------------------
The error message appears:
Error: Unknown error with error code: -672.

Code -672 is explaned in nwec.pdf as:
The requester does not have sufficient rights to the information
specified in a request.

But I am logged into iManager as admin and I have unlimited access as
supervisor!

Result is:
The pool is generated as NSS partition, but it is not added to the NDS
nor in the server context nor in the cluster. So it does not become a
cluster resource.

================================================== ========

Using nssmu:

Pools->Create

Pool Name: USER
Pool Size: 2048 MB

Activate on Creation: Yes
Cluster Enable on Creation: Yes

Shared Pool Clustering Parameters
Virtual Server Name: USER_SRV
CIFS Server Name: USER_SRV
IP Address: 1192.168.1.100

Advertising Protocols
NCP: Yes
CIFS: Yes
AFP: No

------------------------------------------------------------
The error message appears:
-672 Error adding pool to NDS

Result is the same as before.

================================================== ========

Using iManager (2nd approach):
Clusters->Cluster Options (selecting the cluster)

Cluster Objects->New

Type: Pool

Pool Name: USER
Virtual Server Name: USER_SRV
CIFS Server Name: USER_SRV
IP Address: 192.168.1.100
Advertising Protocols:
[ ] AFP
[x] CIFS
[x] NCP

[x] Online Resource after Create
[ ] Define Additional Properties

------------------------------------------------------------
The error message appears:
Error: Could not continue the operation because there were invalid
parameters.

Result:
This time the pool is not created at all.
