13.8 Copying the NCP/NSS Bindings Setting for the Secondary Volume to All Nodes

After you have configured the DST pool cluster resource and before you fail the resource over to other nodes, you must copy the NCP/NSS bindings settings for the secondary NSS volume to the /etc/opt/novell/ncp2nss.conf file on each node. This is necessary only if you skipped the step as you set up multiple DST pool cluster resources. You must disable the NCP/NSS bindings for a resource’s secondary volume only once on each node.

The cluster resource should not be mounted on the node when you are changing its secondary volume’s NCP/NSS binding settings. The following procedure assumes that the resource is currently mounted on another node, or it is offline.

For each node in the cluster, do the following:

  1. Log in to the node as the root user.

  2. Open the /etc/opt/novell/ncp2nss.conf file in a text editor.

  3. Copy or add the EXCLUDE_VOLUME line for the secondary volume to the file.

    EXCLUDE_VOLUME secondary_volumename

    For example:

  4. Save the file.

  5. Restart the Novell eDirectory daemon by entering the following commands:

    rcndsd stop
    rcndsd start
  6. Restart the NCP/NSS IPC daemon to synchronize the changes you made to the /etc/opt/novell/ncp2nss.conf file. At the terminal console prompt, enter

    /etc/init.d/ncp2nss restart

    If the NCP/NSS IPC daemon restarts successfully, the following messages are displayed in the terminal console:

    Shutting down Novell NCP/NSS IPC daemon...
    Starting the Novell NCP/NSS IPC daemon.
