Recently put the oes11sp3 November 2016 maintenance patch on a couple
R&D oes11sp3 boxes running GW2014r2sp1.

After the reboot, ndsd does not start automatically (thinking due to
namcd not running) and the servers take a very long time to boot.

If I get into the servers, I can start rcnamcd and then stop ndsd, the
servers boot up.

I can then manually start ndsd, then nss, and the servers seem to be
normal.

Any ideas on where to look to resolve this?

Here is part of the ndsd.log from the last time I tried booting it:
