trying to configure DNS to run on a OES2SP1 cluster volume.
getting the same error message returned by java client and imanager -

Error: Create request for DNS server failed

Preferred node list for selected NCP Server contains node(s) with older version.

I get that regardless of whether there's one or three nodes listed for that
I can create a dns server on any of the cluster nodes without incident.

everything is up to date and consistent across all three nodes. (sles and oes2sp1 and drivers etc, this is a newly installed, online updated, cluster) time and edir both in sync, nothing of note in logs.

searching for this error message returns nothing useful (one mention of it in 2005 on a netware cluster)

any clues ?

many thanks,
