Environment


Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 2
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 3
Dynamic Storage Technology

Situation

DST policy shows that it's "Currently Running" and never appears to complete. 
It seems to occur on random jobs but is related to multiple jobs or policies scheduled to start at the same time. 
Once a job is in this state the entire service has to be restarted to get it back to normal.  

Resolution

Workaround:  You may restart the service and manually start the job again.  rcnovell-httpstkd restart

The problem has been reported to engineering and currently testing a fix in LIBNRM.SO

Fix is in the novell-nrm-2.0.1-0.14 rpm package included with OES 2 SP3 April 2011 Scheduled Maintenance update release.
