This is working well for most NSS pools, however after specifying the new pool size on the remote SAN, and pressing F3 to accept the new values, some of the NSS pools fail to move with error "23361 - No Space for Move Stamps".
The NSS 'pool move' code takes advantage of that unused space to store the mirror stamps that are being used for the actual pool move.
When this space is available, a pool move can successfully be performed.
There is however always a possibility that the pool is using all the space for one reason or another. These could be pools that were originally created on earlier version of Novell NetWare.
NSS checks to make sure the space required is available (NSS needs 6 sectors to store the stamps), and if not, will return the reported error. There is nothing that can be done with the pool as to fix this.
It was however determined that after expanding the pool, with a minimum of 12 MB, then this causes the rounding to a 1MB boundary to take place again, which in turn will allow the stamps to be written, and the pool move to succeed. It will slightly affect the pool size, but also does solve the problem relatively easy.
