Why my Volume replication or Failover doesn't work in case of NIS authentication?

When DSS is connected to NIS server the volume replication fails to configure and start. While configuring the replication the destination volumes are not listed on the GUI.


Problem is related to NIS users - some system users can be doubled or replaced by users distributed by NIS. The NIS should deliver only users above 100UID and groups above 100GID.


The NIS need to be reconfigred so it won't contain users and groups bellow 101.

Open-E software impacted:

All DSS versions.

I cannot see the NFS Storage Repository after enabling volume...       What DUnknown replication status mean?
