A Forum reader asked the following question about using DSRepair in Linux:

"I have eDir 8.8 installed on SUSE Linux and Windows. When I run DSRepair from Windows, I get a network address error 11001. When I try to run DSRepair from SUSE Linux at /opt/novell/eDirectory/bin I get "command not found". However, I do see DSRepair in the directory. What am I doing wrong?"

Here are responses on the issue from three Novell experts:

From C Preethi:

You need to set your PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variables in the session wherever you are running the DSRepair.

In your case, it would be as follows (do this before running DSRepair):

export PATH=/opt/novell/eDirectory/bin:/opt/novell/eDirectory/sbin:$PATH

Then, run DSRepair.

From Aaron Burgemeister:

At the end of your eDir 8.8 install you should have seen it prompt you to update your PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH statements. This can be updated permanently with bash files. See TID 10100009 for details. To get the entire system in one shot add those same lines to /etc/bash.bashrc.local (probably not existing yet, so create it) or, per user, ~/.bashrc

From Jim Henderson:

Also with eDirectory 8.8, there is an "ndspath" command that can be included in a .bashrc with the following:

. /opt/novell/eDirectory/bin/ndspath

This will make all of the path adjustments (including LD_LIBRARY_PATH, PATH, and MANPATH) for you. It does, however, only currently work with bash and bash-compatible shells.
