Hi,

I have started having a few issues with some of our Netware servers 6.5SP8 with Pools de activating.
Unfortunately these servers have only one pool with all the data volumes & SYS in it and are around 650GB in size.
I can't remeber exactly the errors on screen but after rebooting I ran a verify (which took around 8 hours) which came up saying no errors, but "WARNINGS
Unaccounted Blocks Exist."

I am not sure what this means. About 5 weeks after this it happened again. After a reboot all is fine but now I am wondering if I should do a full rebuild?
Current NSS verion is N65NSS8a. I have the next version, N65NSS8c here which I will apply tonight, should I leave it at that to see what it does or do a rebuild after that as well?

This is a standard file & print server, runs GWise, plus a few other services like DHCP, printing etc. I know all the warnings about there being a good chance of files being lost etc but just how much of a chance is there?
Especially in the GWise side - this is the server in HO and the GW PO is around 200GB so I am a bit hessitant.

This is from the VLF log - I am not sure what to interpret from it..
Any ideas folks?
I am pretty confident it is not a hardware issue but, who knows.

Thanks - Mark
