6.1 NCP Volumes on Linux

NCP volumes can be created on Linux POSIX file systems (such as Ext2, Ext3, btrfs, XFS, and Reiser) on an OES 2018 SP1 server.

By default, Novell Storage Services (NSS) volumes on Linux are NCP volumes. However, NSS volumes are managed through NSS management tools and commands.

IMPORTANT:Except where otherwise noted, “NCP volumes” refers only to NCP shares on Linux POSIX file systems.

NSS volumes are mounted by default in NSS and NCP Server on server restart. You can prevent an NSS volume from mounting automatically in NCP Server by modifying its NCP/NSS bindings so that the volume is not automatically mounted at server restart. For information, see Section 10.9, Configuring the NCP/NSS Bindings for an NSS Volume.
