In a 64-bit OES 2 SP1 cluster the default name space on a cluster resource cannot be changed from long to unix through iManager or NSSMU.


A fix will be released with OES2 SP2 that will allow the changes to be made through iManager and NSSMU.  To resolve the problem in OES2 SP1 edit the cluster load script and modify the ncpcon mount line to add the /opt=ns=unix option.  The line should read ncpcon mount /opt=ns=unix <volumename>=VOLID.
