Fixed in these versions:


Additional Information

As a workaround, set the shadow volume's directory to the default in /media/nss
1) Activate the primary and shadow pools
2) Deactivate the primary and shadow volumes (leave pools active)
3) "ncpcon remove shadow_volume /l <primary volume name>"
4) Mount the volumes
5) Highlight the shadow volume in nssmu and hit F2 to change the volume path to /media/nss/...
6) Use NRM to add the shadow volume back
