7.1 Creating an NSS Pool and Volume

Enter commands at a terminal command prompt as the root user.

Create an NSS pool named MYPOOL1 with a size of 100 GB on device /dev/sdb. Create a volume on the new pool named MYVOL.

nlvm create pool device=sdb size=100G name=MYPOOL1

nlvm create volume name=MYVOL pool=MYPOOL1

The command to create an NSS pool creates the partition, pool, Device mapper object, (such as /dev/nss/sdb1.1), and activates the pool.

The command to create the volume creates the volume and automatically mounts it if the pool is not shared. If the pool is shared and cluster enabled, you must configure the pool cluster resource and use the Novell Cluster Services commands to bring the resource and its volume online.
