I have an OES2 server that is using iSCSI to a SAN and it has an NSS pool and volume created off that. It was all working fine, until after a reboot the NSS pool or volume is no longer found.

If I look in NSSMU the device is found and its got the entire disk as unpartitioned space and when I hit show partitions it displays only a traditional partition not NSS. In Partitions screen that device is not displayed. Pools and volumes screen is completely blank.

In YAST>partitioner the partition type is displayed as Novell Netware, also the EVMS device/types/mounts are no longer there. I've tried activating EMS but no luck. NSS /pools doesn't display anything. When I restart NSS I get the error below. See attached pic for Partitioner.

To me it looks like the entire drive has been wiped so thats why it can't see the pools. But it has only been rebooted so it doesn't make sense.

Any ideas or things to try?

Cheers
