Hi all,

I attempted an down server upgrade and it did well until it got to eDir. It kept failing with errors about not finding an file or directory:

Command socket error: No such file or directory. ErrorCode=2
Jul 15 15:47:57 n4u_send_command failed with error code=-1

and ndsconfig.log contained:

Jul 15 15:47:50 Path of Novell eDirectory configuration file /etc/opt/novell/eD
irectory/conf/nds.conf
Jul 15 15:47:50 NCPShim Init Failed, error -601


I tried using ndstrace but it would just die imediatly. nldap wouldn't start either. ndsd would start but complain that it couldn't connect to the tcp or tls ports.

I eventually tried removing the directory with ndsconfig rm but that didn't work either. I then tried uninstalling and reinstalling all of the edir related rpm packages. Again no luck.

I then removed the edir config manually and decided to try adding it back to the tree using ndsconfig add. That gave me the same result I was getting originally. Since I can't load ndstrace I can't see what object it can't find.

Thats where I am at now. If anyone has an idea how I can get this server back up I would be very happy to hear it.

Oh, and here is the output of this last try:
