We are doing our first Sles 11 Oes 11 install in our tree. We have done all of the configuration steps we are at the Configure and start edirectory using "ndsconfig" step

This fails with an Error
Ndsconfig failed to configure and start Edirectory.

under details it says unable to get host ip address.

When we click okay, we just go around in a loop and can't get any farther.
