We're going through a migration to OES on linux but of course we're still running netware 6.5. Pre-requisite to moving to OES was upgrading to 8.8.5.

Its a 2 node cluster so we have avoided outages as one server keeps going but the other abends like clock work at 100.00 and then if its set to reboot at 11.38.

have been using compaq insight manager (i think) to monitor and reboot the server once it abends - hence the two abends. Turned off the insight manager last night so finally got an abend log.

excerpt follows below:

The interesting questions are that compaq ilo reports that the abend has been occurring consistently with NLDAP.NLM and I've checked the version on the other cluster server and the versions are the same and yet the other server doesn't abend.

So I'm looking for any tips on futher debugging this.
