Resolution

Edit the sys:\system\smsstart.ncf and add /cluster=on to the TSAFS.NLM load line.

Example:
LOAD TSAFS.NLM /cluster=on

This will cause the TSAFS.NLM to load with this switch each time SMS is loaded with this script.
Unload SMS with SMSSTOP.
Confirm TSAFS.NLM is unloaded.
Manually unload it if it is not unloaded.
Reload SMS with SMSSTART.

The TSAFS.NLM can also be manually unloaded from the NetWare console and reloaded with this switch.
