Perform these tasks to verify that eDirectory and DSfW have been installed and configured correctly.
NOTE:After you have installed a child domain or an subsequent domain controller, the DNS server running at forest root domain (or the DNS server you are pointing to in /etc/resolv.conf file) must be restarted. Execute the following command on the server hosting the Novell DNS service:
Check the /etc/hosts file to ensure that it contains only one entry with this server’s primary IP address. For example:
192.168.1.1 oesdc.dsfw.com oesdc
Check the /etc/resolv.conf file to ensure that it contains a name server and domain search entry for server on which DNS is hosted. For example:
nameserver 192.168.1.1 search dsfw.com
Verify that eDirectory has been properly configured by using the following command:
/opt/novell/eDirectory/bin/ndsstat -h localhost
This command returns information similar to the following:
Tree Name: DSFW_TREE
Binary Version: 20217.06
Root Most Entry Depth: 0
Product Version: eDirectory for Linux v8.8 SP5 [DS]
Execute xadcntrl validate at the terminal prompt.
If the services are configured correctly, the result of the command will be similar to the following output:
Tree Name: DSFW-TREE Server Name: .CN=testfrd.OU=OESSystemObjects.dc=dsfw.dc=com.T=DSFW-TREE.

Execute the following commands:
rpcclient -k localhost –c dsroledominfo
If your server is configured correctly, you should see information similar to the following:
Machine Role = 
Directory Service is running.
Domain is in native mode.
