After upgrading my test machine from OES2 SP1 32-bit to OES2 SP2 32-bit (obviously upgraded SLES10 SP2 to SP3), nss is nonfunctional. Of course, this is vmware ESX, so I'm also using the VMI kernel.

nssmu won't run (either admin volume is not found or you don't have rights to it)

I checked /var/log/messages and it looks like it's complaining about ldap and namcd.

I checked the /var/log/boot.msg and it seems this is the error:

loading nss kernel module
loading ndpmod kernel module
Starting ndpapp daemon
loading nsscomn kernel module
FATAL: Error inserting nsscomn (/lib/modules/ Operationg not permitted
ERROR: Failed load of nsscomn
.. . . ABORTING /etc/init.d/novell-nss . . . .
mknod: missing operand after '0'

blah blah blah

Is kernel-vmi no longer compatible with SP3/OES2 SP2?

I'd been using it just fine previously with OES2 SP1 and SLES 10 SP2
