29.9 NSS Volume Disappears from the NCP Console (ncpcon)

An NSS volume might not be found by the ncpcon utility if the volume’s mount point is renamed (the directory path is changed). For example, this might occur if you change the mount point’s directory path from /media/nss/volumename (the default path) to /targetpath/volumename.

When an NSS volume is created, the NCP server gets the path to the volume and caches it, assuming that it never changes. When you later run the NCP Console (ncpcon) utility and enter the volume command, it reports the volumes that are still found at their respective mount points. Only the volumes that are still valid as compared to the list in cache are reported.
