Hi all: I had a strange thing happen yesterday. But first, we run OES2 SP3 and eDir is up to date at version 8.8.7. So yesterday two of our servers stopped communicating to eDirectory. These two servers only hold a replica of the OU in which they reside (i.e. no root replica). I was able to ssh into the servers, and on running "ndsrepair -N", it would return an error stating a - failure to communicate and that the certificates were invalid (paraphrased). I rebooted the two servers and now everything is fine and dandy. I have tested all the server certificates and they return valid.

I know the description is lacking a lot of detail, but I was hoping for suggestions on what might have happened or what I should look at to prevent this in the future.

Thanks for your help, Chris.
