Thanks for any help.
I was able to introduce this hardware (Dell PE 2850) and type of install (before reinstall of SUSE/OES2) to our test tree so I am 99.3% sure this isn't user error.
I am trying to put our first OES2 Linux server into our production tree. Most of our servers are at SMP (NW6.5) one at The server which is the master is SMP.

My attempts show this -
Error -222 unable to login - unknown error -222 (fffffff22 hex)
Set for nds installation failed Please make certain you have provide the complete server and admin contexts

ndsconfig return value = 59
