I did this and there is still the problem.

Could not change pool ADMUSERS to the ACTIVE state.
Status=20896 comnPool.c[890].
Use 'NSS /ErrorCode=20896' to obtain more information.

All pools are visable from one of the cluster members but it just cannot mount it. Any other suggestions?

Thanks for your suggestion, Tim. The other thing that I had to do was to
modify the ldncs.ncf to include the CVB, SBDLIB and SBD which were missing.
