The salvage flag has been set on an OES2 NSS volume.
Files have been deleted and a purge has not been executed.
A windows client shows a statistic of zero purgeable space.
iManager and an NSS verify log both show salvageable blocks, but salvageable files are not seen.
Manually re-adding the salvage flag to the NSS volume via NSSMU temporarily fixes the symptom until the next server reboot.


The /etc/opt/novell/ncpserv.conf has manually created entries for NSS volumes.  This file should not contain NSS volume entries.  Removing the manually created NSS volume entries fixes this issue.
