How to create the '_ADMIN' volume object in NDS

Change

Not properly deleting a server and it's associations from NDS, and then re-installing a server into the NDS with the same name again, caused the 'ADMIN_<server name>' volume object to be question marked, as it still referenced the 'old' server.

Fix

1) Start ConsoleOne
2) Right Click the container (organization or organizational unit) where the server object resides,
3)Select New | Object | Volume, and click OK.
4) Enter the volume name as "ADMIN_<SERVERNAME>"
5) and choose the corresponding server from the drop down Host server list.
6) Select '_ADMIN' from the drop down Physical Volume list, and click OK.
 
NOTE:
Because the '_ADMIN' volume is not a regular volume, there is no option to 'Upgrade Mounted Volumes into NDS' in either ConsoleOne or NSSMU.
