Had a problem one one my oes2 servers yesterday where all NCP
connections to the box just completely died. LDAP still worked fine, but
all Novell Client connections where dead in the water. Since the box was
the default (messaging) server for over a thousand users that wasn't
pretty. Restarting ndsd did not help, I had to bounce the box.
ndsd.log was flooded with messages like the ones below:

NCPEngine_VerifyConnectionSocket error, conn: 222, sock 455 != 101
Process NPC error - VerifyConnectionSocket failed for conn: 222, sock: 101
NCPEngine_VerifyConnectionSocket error, conn: 222, sock 455 != 101
Process NPC error - VerifyConnectionSocket failed for conn: 222, sock: 101
NCPEngine_VerifyConnectionSocket error, conn: 222, sock 455 != 101
Process NPC error - VerifyConnectionSocket failed for conn: 222, sock: 101
NCPEngine_FindConnectionWithSocket error, sock: 498
NCPEngine_FindConnectionWithSocket error, sock: 498
NCPEngine_FindConnectionWithSocket error, sock: 500

Has anybody seen this before?

Thanks
