There may be times where you want to disable caching on the LAG in order to troubleshoot.


On the LAG, create a touch file and remove the existing cache by doing the following:

touch /var/novell/.noCache

/etc/init.d/novell-vmc stop
rm /var/novell/.~newInstall
/etc/init.d/novell-vmc start

When done testing, simply delete the touch file and restart the vmc service to re-enable caching:

/etc/init.d/novell-vmc stop
/etc/init.d/novell-vmc start
