I have a test tree with one server running on OES2 SP1 (Linux). Now I'm
trying to add another server to the same tree, but when OES2 install
reaches to the stage of configuring eDirectory, it fails with error:

ndsconfig failed to configure and start eDirectory

The detailed log ends with this message:

A call to create NDS database failed. Error description: Illegal
containment. Novell eDirectory Server configuration failed.

I did run eDirectory health check before starting the new server install
and it showed no problems.

Perhaps I should mention that this tree has Domain Services for Windows in
non-name-mapped mode. The new server object is attempted to be created in
context cn=Users,dc=domain,dc=com, which I find strange but the installer
doesn't allow me to change that. The existing server is under

Any ideas?
