Additional Information

Root Cause
When running Novell Remote Manager  a check is done for the amount of free disk space for each nss mount point  specifically the nss volume is checked. If a pool is in a de-active state then the volume cannot be checked for its free disk space and the error :lsa_pool_statfs: zOpen = 20801 is reported in /var/log/messagesfor that volume , depending on how many de-active pools there are at the time of the check determines the amount errors will be reported at that time . For example:
two de-active pools called pool1 and pool2, two entries of lsa_pool_statfs: zOpen = 20801will be added to /var/log/messages.

This error is more likely to occur on OES 2 Servers running clustering because some pools will be de-active on all nodes but the node the resources owning that pool is active on.
