Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 3
Multipathing configured to use aliases instead of the WWID of the storage devices.


When trying to create a new pool through NSSMU a 20403 error is returned.


If multipathing is configured to use aliases, the device alias and the pool name cannot be the same.  The 20403 error is a result of attempting to use a name that is already in use.  Either use a different pool name or change the alias being used in the multipath.conf file and the pool should create without problem.
