Novell Open Enterprise Server (Linux based)
NSS volumes


User had been moved from one container in edirectory to a new container.
Users can not map drives.
The admin user is able to map drives successfully.


The cache on the server still had the data for the user in the old container.
To fix do the following in order:
1. "namconfig cache_refresh"
This will stop namcd daemon, remove persistent cache files and restart the namcd daemon again.
2. "nsscon" then "resetidcache" then "exit"
This will reset the cache for NSS so it will go build a new cache based on new updates in edirectory.
3. "ncpcon nss resync=VOLUMENAME" where VOLUMENAME is the name of the NSS volumes.
This will resync the trustees from NSS to NCP.
