I purchased a USB external drive. Connected it to my NetWare 6.5 sp7
server. Created a partition, pool, and NSS volume. Turned the drive
off and restarted it. The pool was now listed as traditional. The
volume was gone. Assumed my problem was due to the ungraceful
shutdown. I deleted the partition and recreated everything. This
time I dismounted the volume and deactivated the pool. Then I turned
the drive off and restarted it again. Same problem.

My goal is to use a USB drive for archival purposes. Archive data
would be copied to two drives. One would go off-site and the other
would remain on-site, plugged in, and available read-only to all

Am I going about this the wrong way? Should I format it as something
other than NSS? Suggestions?


Novell....it does a server good!
