This sounds like you probably need to add more memory to your Fileserver. Each mounted volume on a netware server requires an amount of RAM corresponding to the volume size. And since you didn't say how much disk you are adding or how much disk you currently have it's hard to say if it's really the problem.

You can check your fileservers memory status by looking at the MONITOR.NLM screen option "Resource utilization". Check how much memory is aval for "Cache Buffers". Novell says never let this value go below 20% and recommends at least 40-60% of avail memory. Every piece of memory needed by applications running on the server or the system itself (like mounting a volume) is taken from the Cache Buffers pool.

The formula to calculate required server memory is found in your manual "Netware Installation and Upgrade" chapter 1.

This page says:

Minimum required is 4 MB.
Add 2MB if you use additional Netware Products (like Netware for Macintosh), PSERVER.NLM or if CLIB.NLM, STREAM.NLM or BTRIEVE.NLM is loaded.

Multiply the amount of your TOTAL disk space with 0.008 and add this value to the sum you got previous. For a 1 GM volume that's 8 MB.

After this you should check required memory for every additional third party product (Arcserve/DHCP/etc...) and add suggested memory.
