Novell Support TID: How to create a cluster resource with a native Linux filesystem

To create a native Linux Cluster Resource for Novell Cluster Services, Enterprise Volume Management System (EVMS) is required. Additionally, in order to have the proper behavior, the resource needs to be created on a private cluster segment.

To use a native Linux volume with EVMS as a cluster resource, you need to use the Cluster Segment Manager (CSM) plugin. This plugin manages the ownership of the container. Using the CSM plugin, you can create a private container to host the volume.

There are some differences in working with EVMS volumes compared to NSS volumes. Please make sure you read the Cautions section of the document.
