Hello All;

I have 2 x OES 11 SP2 with NCS servers with the latest updates. These servers are virtuialized on a SLES 11 SP3 with KVM

Following the Docs on putting DHCP on a NCS with NSS volumes
Installing and Configuring a Cluster 8.3.3
Step 9

9. To hardlink, enable the shared volume on which the dhcpd.conf and dhcpd.leases files are hosted eg.DHCPVOL.

Invoke nsscon in the linux terminal and execute the following commands:


in doing the first command, I receive
nss /ZLSSUpgradeCurrentVolumeMediaFormat=VOL1
VolumeMediaFormat upgrade for volume "VOL1" failed. Status = 20888.

The second command states the first command must be done.
nss /hardlinks=Vol1
Hardlinks may not be created on volume "vol1" until it is upgraded using the "ZLSSUpgradeCurrentVolumeMediaFormat" command...


I can offline, online, migrate the pool (with a single volume) between the 2 servers with no issues.

I have checked the nss and ncs modules on the 2 SLES 11 SP3 servers and they are exactly the same.

using nsscon, I can see the _ADMIN and VOL1 volumes. The _ADMIN has the hardlink attribute. So why does VOl1 not upgrade the media format? And what must be done to make this command work?


I cannot continue until this step is fully completed.

Thank you.
