Example: Original volumes SYS, SALES, ACCT
Cloned disk volumes renamed: SYS1, SALES1, ACCT1

That doesn't make sense.
Hard drives should run all the time.
Hard drives that you put, lets say into a safe, it might be corrupt after a few years.
So that makes no sense.

What you intended to do is, to mount and connect the drives, so that it can be used in worst case scenario, but why not use the disks as mirror disks?

So you have to sets of drives, running at the same time, holding all the current data, and if one disk fails, you can buy and put in a new one, while all the users can do their work at the mirror disk. After new disk is installed, you have to remirror the disks so that the new disk will get the latest data.

When you clone a hard drive, the target drive is (or should be) an exact copy of the donor drive, including the name of each partition, so you must have done something wrong when cloning.

Sounds that you already have connected the cloned hard drive to the server and rebooted the server, so that the volumes have been added to the NDS (eDirectory).

You should be able to rename the volume names in nwconfig.
Therefore, start nwconfig at the server console.
Choose "Standard Disk Options" then "Netware Volume Options".
Choose the SYS volume and hit enter.
At the preselected Volume Name hit enter and rename the original SYS volume to SYS2.
Then do the same with SYS1 and rename it to SYS.

After that, you have to delete the volume objects from the NDS (eDirectory) and run DSREPAIR at the server console.
Choose "Unattended full repair", until Total errors in the upper right corner of the screen shows 0.

When done, exit DSREPAIR and down the server.
Disconnect the unneeded hard drive and power on the server.

Btw.: Make sure, that the DOS partition of the new hard drive is set to active, so that it is bootable.

Hi,
In Windows built in Disk Management, you can extend and create volumes and so on. But you can not rename your partitions. For this reason, I recommend free version of Partition Assistant for you to achieve your goal.
