Hi all,

We're running eDirectory 8.8 SP8, Patch 8 on SLES 11, and are attempting to get the LDAP password modify exop (oid up and running. This OID does not appear as a supportedExtension entry in the root DES, and yet the patch notes clearly indicate this functionality was available from patch 6 onward. Some hopefully relevant information:

# ndstat -s

[1] Instance at /etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/nds.conf: OES1.O=ASTRON.ASTRON

This list shows each server found in the local database.

Building server list

Server name Local Status Local ID Agent Revision Agent Version
.NTSERVER48-NDS.ASTRON.ASTRON. Up 0000805c 20505.07 eDirectory for NT v8.8 SP5 [DS]
.OES1.ASTRON.ASTRON. Up 00008030 20809.22 eDirectory for Linux x86_64 v8.8 SP8 [DS]
.OES2.ASTRON.ASTRON. Up 0000805d 20809.22 eDirectory for Linux x86_64 v8.8 SP8 [DS]

Now there's this Windows machine which runs a (much) older version, as you can see; the local eDirectory maintainer says this is merely a target in a replication ring (all our clients authenticate against the OES1 entry) and nothing actually checks against it. My suspicion is that the older version is blocking advertisement of the exop on our principal server, but I'm struggling to understand why that might be. The root DES is unique to each server, is it not?

Many thanks for any insight you can provide.
