Having a problem getting our OES2L VM to create an NSS partition on an external RAID Array. I setup the VM with a file based disk for the main OS, then added the external array as a new hard drive after the install. The array shows up as /dev/xvdc in the VM (mapped to /dev/cciss/c0d0 on the host).

I've initialized the drive from iManager and it shows 16K of used space (Dos MBR I assume) and 2.46TB of free space. However, when I try to create a new NSS Pool in iManager, it does not list the device's freespace to choose from. NSSMU also reports "There are no partitions available to create pool". Course, it won't let me create just the partition (as I could in NetWare) then the pool.

Am I missing a step somewhere?
