Team,

I am new to Novell OES usage.

My configuration: SLES 11 SP2 + OES 11 SP1

I created NSS Pools & volumes:

167_VOL4 83843072 812016 80350640 2% /media/nss/167_VOL4


Issue: Now i attempt to run dt tool (Direct IO option) as test run. The test fails & dt fails to write.
without direct io flag, dt tool run is working.

I read Novell Support Doc ID: 7001517 & understand there's an option to enable/disable Direct IO to file/volume.



Question: Can you suggest how can i toggle DIO & non DIO? Procedure please.
