I have a working edirectory tree with 2 dsfw.Both were SLES10 sp3/OES2sp2. I try to add another server for novell-cifs in the tree but at 53% installation would stop with error "ndsconfig failed to configure and start edirectory". below are error details. im sure the tree admin is right since its the same user and context that i use to add dsfw. Hope somebody could provide idea..

Checking if server is ready to service requests...
Logging into the tree as "cn=administrator.cn=users.dc=dom.dc=com". Please wait...
ERROR -223: Unable to login - unknown error -223 (ffffffffffffff21 hex)
ERROR -223: Setup for NDS installation failed.
Please make certain that you have provided the complete server and admin contexts.
