The Clusters plug-in for Novell iManager 2.7.5 or later was introduced in OES 11 SP1. It supports the management of OES and NetWare clusters and resources.

In addition to bug fixes, the following changes and enhancements were made in the January 2013 Scheduled Maintenance for OES 11:
Unmounting a pool:
The nlvm unmount <poolname> command has been modified to additionally remove the Device Mapper object for the pool, the link to the Device Mapper object, and the mount point for the pool. This allows you to gracefully log out the server from an iSCSI device that contains a pool. For information, see
Logging Out of an iSCSI Device that Contains an NSS Pool in the OES 11 SP1: NLVM Reference.
Unmounting a volume: NCP Server has been modified to automatically log dismounts of NSS volumes and NCP volumes.
