Hi,

We have current environment IDM 4.5.2 with eDirectory 8.8.8 patch 8. Aim is to upgrade to IDM 4.5.5 with eDirectory 9.0.2 and then IDM 4.6

After applying 4.5.5 engine service pack and idm45_eDir90_compat i upgraded edirectory to 9.0.2. After upgrading ndsd is not starting instance.

below are some output of command i am getting.

This is a clustered environment and other copy of this is running in Hostname0 server with no issues having eDirectory 8.8.8 patch 8.
I have tried to set ndspath which didn't help me.

Please help me to fix this

Thanks
