OK, I've done a clean install of OES 2 but cannot get nss to start. By the looks of things it hasn't created the _Admin volume but this mostly seems to be connected with the nss startup script (startnss.bsh) in this release not knowing where nwraid.ko is. Can anybody help? I've seen various posts about links and kernel versions but they don't appear to be making sense.

NSS is NOT fully running!

What I will say is that "broken out of the box" is giving the go Microsoft guys in the office all the ammunition they could want. They can't believe their luck.
