I have historically been able to mount a folder on our NOVELL SLES Linux server with no problems, but recently I've run into some problems. The last view days I have been unsuccessful in being able to mount the folder. I ran "ncpcon" to try and figure out if it lost it's brain or something?

OCUGW01:volume

Mounted Volumes
        SYS
        _ADMIN
        GWDATA

3 volumes mounted.
OCUGW01:volume GWDATA

                    Volume: GWDATA
                    Status: online mounted NSS Long
               Mount point: /media/nss/GWDATA
        Shadow Mount point: (null)
                  Capacity: 498.44 GB
                        ID: 2
                      GUID: 88a5a9e2-bf7b-01e0-80-00-f9a0e4548e1d
                 Pool name: GWPOOL

OCUGW01:rights view GWDATA:/media/nss/GWDATA
The following trustees have been assigned to GWDATA:/media/nss/GWDATA

Invalid command -- type help for a list of supported commands

Am I typing the command wrong here or did it lose the trustee's?

I ran eDirectory Health Checks and everything is coming back with Zero Errors.

It appears that the volume GWDATA is mounted and accessible from what you've included.  Can you not see any folders that should be in that volume?

In a terminal session or shell/putty, can you cd /media/nss/GWDATA and then do ls and see folders?

If the volume is there but "isn't there" you may have certificate problems that control ldap which controls LUM (Linux User Management) and that controls NSS.

If you can open iManager and use the Directory Administration role and the Modify Object task to navigate into whatever OU your server is located and find the SSL Certificate DNS object.  Once you're examining that object, click on the Certificates tab where you'll see a couple of certificates listed.  Click the blue link for either one and look at the start and expire dates and let me know.
