A client recently totally messed up his NDS because he didn't follow the basics. So I assembled this list for him, and figured you'd all benefit by keeping it in your back e-pockets just in case.
- If a server fails (especially within a multi-server NDS tree like Acme's) (name changed to protect the guilty!).
See these TIDs:
10013083 (both basically cover the same material but reading them all while waiting for some of the early steps, will help you understand what it is your are doing so that you can do the right things without killing anything).
- If you are changing a server such that you need to take it out of the tree and restore, (such as when replacing the harddrives or the whole server), then follow TID 10010933 10010933.
- For general NDS, things to have checked before calling Novell tech support, see TID 10014284 and 10060600
- Additional NDS health information is available on the following AppNotes (available on the Support Connection CDs or at http://developer.novell.com/research/index.htm )
- May 1998 - Using DSREPAIR to Maintain the Novell Directory Services Database
- August/October 1997 - Maintaining a Healthy NDS Tree: Parts 1 & 2
- Details for maintaining NDS:
January 1999 - Troubleshooting NDS in NetWare 5 with DSREPAIR and DSTRACE
- and an old but still useful for understanding the basics even if some of the details have changed:
October 1996 - Backing Up and Restoring Novell Directory Services in NetWare 4.11
