Re: volume daemon is not accessible!

Prior to V4.x you will see this message when a user is trying to execute an LSM command and they are not the superuser. With V4.x the message is more obvious: "You are not privileged to run volprint".

Please check if vold is still running as a process. If not use the following commands:

1. add "pseudo-device lsm_ted 0"
"pseudo-device lsm 1"
into your kernel parameter file and rebuild kernel. Reboot kernel afterwards

2. check lsm license with
# lmf list |grep LSM-OA
output must be:
LSM-OA active unlimited

3. check if vold is running:
# ps waux |grep vold
if not running, use #/sbin/vold to start the vold daemon.

4. zero disklabel of disk which will be used by LSM!!

5. # volsetup rz2

there are different ways and commands to create volumes (e.g. volassist make vol01 10m etc.)

have a look into the documentation and be sure you understand the concept and the lsm objects prior to "play around".
