13.3.1 Re-creating eDirectory Objects

Novell Storage Service

Use the NSS Management utility to re-create the eDirectory objects for NSS pools and volumes. For additional information, see NSS Management Utility Quick Reference in the NSS Administration Guide.

  1. Re-create the eDirectory object for each NSS pool:

    1. Start NSSMU by entering the following command at the command prompt:

      nssmu

    2. Select Pools and press Enter to list all the NSS pools.

    3. Select a pool that needs to be re-created and press F4.

    4. Select Yes when you are prompted to delete and re-create an NDS pool object.

      The selected NDS pool object is re-created.

    5. Repeat from Step 1.c for each NDS pool object that needs to be re-created.

  2. Re-create the eDirectory object for each NSS volume:

    1. In NSSMU, select Volumes and press Enter to list all the NSS volumes.

    2. Select a volume and press F4.

    3. Select Yes when you are prompted to delete and re-create the NDS volume object.

      The selected volume object is re-created.

    4. Repeat from Step 2.b for each NDS volume object that needs to be re-created.

  3. (Conditional) If the eDirectory object for _ADMIN volume exists, execute the following command:

    rcadminfs restart

NCP Server

Use the NCP server console (NCPCON) utility to delete and re-create the eDirectory objects for the NCP volumes. For more information on the NCPCON utility, see NCP Server Console Utility in the NCP Server for Linux Administration Guide.

IMPORTANT:If restoration of the eDirectory database is not possible, simply delete the NCP server object.

  1. Delete the eDirectory object of the NCP volume by entering the following command:

    ncpcon remove volume SYS

  2. Re-create the eDirectory object of the NCP volume by entering the following command:

    ncpcon create volume SYS /usr/novell/sys
