5.3 Creating NSS Storage Objects in eDirectory

When you use NSSMU or iManager to create an NSS pool or volume on a server, a Storage object is automatically created in Novell eDirectory™. By default, the name of the Storage object is the server’s name with an underscore and the object’s name appended (for example, myserver_sys). A Storage object represents a logical or physical object on a server, whether it is a writable disk, a CD, or other storage medium.

IMPORTANT:An NSS volume must have a Storage object in eDirectory to be able to participate in Novell Distributed File Services.

For more information about Novell eDirectory, see Object Classes and Properties in the Novell eDirectory 8.8 Administration Guide.
