When changing the look namespace to "long" for a NSS volume using Novell iManager a wrong entry is being created in fstab.
The entry being created is "ns=Long" this should be "ns=long"
In /var/log/messages the following messages will be displayed:
Volume Mount Name Space option ns= has unknown value: Long
Since "Long" is not a valid namespace the system will be mounting the Volume with the default namespace "unix" which is case sensitive.

The nssmgmt.npm must be dated 30 June or later, this plug-in will work with Novell iManager 2.5 and 2.6
