Here's a tip if you're a NetWare 6 administrator trying to set up mirrored drives with ConsoleOne.
In the partition manager section, after having selected "New" you must enter a Total Partition Size and a Hotfix Size that results in a Data Area Size that is the same as the partition you want to mirror (within 120MB).
If the Data Area Size is too small, the group you want to mirror to will not show up as an available selection.
If the Data Area Size is too large, you will get a "Failed" error with the error code -1.
NetWare 6 will automatically adjust the Hotfix size to give the correct Data Area Size if the Total Partition Size is close enough.
