Clustering the SYS volume

Environment

Novell NetWare 6.5
Novell Cluster Services
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2)
Novell Open Enterprise Server (Linux based)
Novell Open Enterprise Server (NetWare based)

Situation

The default SYS volume on linux is not an NSS volume. 
A SYS NCP volume mount point is automatically created and mounted when NCP Server is installed. The path to this mount point is /usr/novell/sys. This volume contains the same login and public directories that exist on NetWare. These directories let Novell clients run commands for logging in, mapping drives, etc., as well as providing the means for client commands to be run from login scripts.

Resolution

The SYS volume can not be clustered in NetWare.
The default SYS volume on linux can not be clustered.
