I am having an issue with an OES2 install with all the latest updates.

The issue at hand is that after the server has run for a day or two, ndsd
and or owcimomd create high utilization in the server and then prevents
people from logging in to the server.

When I look at /var/log/messages I do not see anything suspicious.
Although when I look at the /var/opt/novell/edirectory/log/ndsd.log I see
alot of the following:

SSG Thread 8:2 taking too long to service a request (89:-1) - replacing
with a new thread

Does anyone else experience this problem?


The version information for the current kernel and the packages for
oqcimomd and ndsd are as follows:
