13.7 Removing the Local Definition for a Cluster-Enabled Shadow Volume

If you cluster-enabled an existing shadow volume, you must remove the SHADOW_VOLUME line from the /etc/opt/novell/ncpserv.conf file that was added for the local shadow volume. The line is added automatically on a node when the resource is brought online, and removed automatically when the resource is taken offline.

  1. Log in as the root user on the node where you created the shadow volume, then open a terminal console.

  2. Offline the shadow volume cluster resource by entering

    cluster offline resource_name
    
  3. Open the /etc/opt/novell/ncpserv.conf file in a text editor.

  4. Remove the SHADOW_VOLUME line from the file.

    SHADOW_VOLUME primary_volumename secondary_volume_path
    

    For example:

    SHADOW_VOLUME VOL1 /media/nss/ARCVOL1
    
  5. Save the file.

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

    rcndsd stop
    
    rcndsd start
