    broken admin user

    I am having problems with my admin user. When I go in to change the
    rights for a folder or file, it tells me that it failed to add the
    trustee and that I may not have sufficent rights. I have checked the
    user at the root level and made sure he has supervisor and all other
    attributes. I also tried to add another user to the top level and got
    the same results. I then created a completely new user, gave them
    supervisor as assigned rights, added them as a Trustee of root and gave
    it supervisor assigned rights and again got the same result. I have run
    dsrepair and that has not made a difference. The OS version is Netware
    6.5 Support Pack 5, the eDirectory version is 8.7.3.7 SMP and my NDS
    version is 10552.79. I checked time sycronization with my other servers
    as well.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jay

    There may be an IRF blocking file system or NSD rights flowing down to
    the affected server. Try granting explicit S rights to the affected
    server object.

    Also, check licensing: You should have an NLS_LSP object for each 6.5
    server, in its container. A 6.5 server license object should be in the
    same container as the server object(s), or above that in the tree, and
    not assigned to any server. If non-MLA, a 6.5 user (conn) license needs
    to be in the same container as the user objects, or above that in the
    tree, and not assigned to any server. Make sure the two license types
    are successfully being consumed.

    I don't see anything labled as an NLS_LSP object. I went to new object to
    add one and I don't see anything. When I type in version at the system
    console it tells me that my license is audited, but that is the way my
    other servers are showing as well. My apologies, I have kind of been
    thrown into this situation by the person that was here before me.

    Thanks,

    That's a problem then. On the console run Setupnls, login as admin
    (supplying the context) when it asks.

    Andrew,

    Does it take a while or a restart for that change to propogate? I ran
    that tool, found the item in the tree now, but I still get the same error
    when I try to add a trustee.

    Thanks,

    Jay

    That change does not have to propagate, it is server-centric. Now you
    need to go over the rest of the licensing items I listed, one by one;
    they /all/ have to be OK for licensing to work.

    Also, did you "Try granting explicit S rights to the affected server
    object" as I suggested?
