2-node OES Cluster nodes reboot when attempting to online iPrint resource.
After the nodes had rebooted, all subsequent attempts to online the iPrint resource fails.
Nothing is written to /var/opt/novell/log/iprint/ipsmd.log.

Browse the Ndps filesystem on the shared storage for Example :/mnt/iprint/.../ndpsmanager.psm/xxxxxxxxxx.PA
hidden files were noticed in various printer agent queue directories identified by xxxxxxxxxx.PA.

Cause :
File system corruption.


Perform a filesystem repair :
1. unmount the shared storage where the Ndps Manager database exists.
2. Perform a fsck on the Linux filesystem : fsck.reiserfs --rebuild-tree /mnt/iprint
