ERROR:  "-97 Error adding volume to NDS" is presented when creating a volume in a cluster enabled pool.
/var/log/messages reports "ncs-configd: [clstrlib.NWCLSTR_ClusterEnableVol,".T=TREE.O=CONTEXT.SERVER1_VOL1"] failed: exceptions.ValueError"


Each "ncpcon mount" command in the cluster resource load scripts has a volume ID.  These volume IDs need to be unique.  Edit the load scripts through iManager and make all the volume IDs unique.  The volume ID is at the end of the "ncpcon mount" command.

If you do not have duplicate volume IDs then this error is due to a bug.  The fix is in OES 2 SP1.

Change Log

Juston Mortenson: Added information about bug 448893 and that this was fixed in OES 2 SP1.
