No Volumes are available at their mount point and when trying to execute 'nssmu', the server returns the error:
NSS Management Utility - ERROR Either the Admin volume was not found or you don't have rights to access it.
Also 'rcnovell-nss status' and 'rcnamcd status ' will show as "dead"
Ensure eDirectory NDS Daemon is running via:
- rcndsd status
Ensure namcd is properly configured:
- edit /etc/nam.conf
- Verify the preferred-server, ldap-port and ldap-ssl-port are valid. These values should be from the Master LDAP or a good known Server with a RW replica.
- You may test this via 'telnet IPofLDAPserver 636' or 'telnet IPofLDAPserver 389' being the ports specified valid within the Server configuration.
Once the namcd configuration is correct:
- execute 'namconfig -k' to import the SSL Certificate into the local server/workstation.
You may at this point execute
- 'rcnamcd start'
- 'rcnamcd status' should report "running"
- 'rcnovell-nss start'
Novell Storage Services depends on the eDirectory Novell Account Management caching daemon (namcd) and namcd depends on the eDirectory NDS Daemon.
Should the nam.conf need a full reconfiguration, it can be downloaded by executing 'namconfig get' and then redirected to a file for further editing and future usage as /etc/nam.conf
