I am trying to access the files in NSS pools as the root user, to rsync them to another server..

When I try to access them via GUI, I get "the folder could not be displayed". When I try to access them via command line I get "Not a directory"

I can access them from an edirectory login, on another machine, but not as root.

Server OES linux 2, edirectory, NSS on separate partition.

Thanks in advance
