Hello.

So we have various sites, but a set of core sites with Novell File Servers, our Filr Server can talk to VOL1 on all of these sites except ironically the server at the same physical site as itself. When we try to talk to VOL1 we just see no files.

When you look in /var/log/messages you see this....

I've left it for days on end to see if it will sync, but it doesn't. I guess there is something a little hinky with VOL1...
