I have an OES 11 server that has the simple task of holding the master
partitions of my network and hosting iManager.

Due to not updating the credentials with my current SUSE keycode, the
server had not been patched and was still on SLES11 SP2, OES11 SP1 and
eDirectory 8.8 SP7.
I dealt with that issue and the server patched itself to current
versions of SLES, OES and eDirectory.

Unfortunately, after patching the server, iManager no longer works.
The login screen still comes up, but attempts to log result in a 500 or
503 web page error.
Remote Manager is also non-functional, although iMonitor works fine.

Initially, I found that novell-tomcat6 wasn't starting automatically,
but that's no longer the case.
I've no clue as to why. It would manually start without error, but
iManager/Remote monitor are still non-functional. Now it starts
properly, but no change in iManager/Remote Manager.

Since all the server does is hold the partitions and host iManager, I
figured I'd just create another server with iManager installed, add
partition replicas to it, promote the replica to master, and remove
remove my original iManager server from the system.

The problem: Attempts to promote, edit or add any replica results in a
-608 illegal attribute error.
An attempt to put a R/W replica on the new server looks to be stuck.

This is what I see if I look at iMonitor on the original iManager
server.

That gets repeated over and over.

My biggest concern is that I can't create or modify any objects until
this is cleared up.

I tried moving a test user on the new iManager installation and got a
message that the move request failed.
I tried the same in C1 and got a little more info:
(Error -654) Another partition operation is currently taking place.

I've created an SR with Novell, but thought I'd also look to the forums
for advice in fixing it.
The new server can be destroyed, but I don't think that will fix the
underlying issue.
