The following are known OES-specific eDirectory issues. For general eDirectory issues, refer to the eDirectory documentation Web site.
After a system crash or power failure, eDirectory services (ndsd) might not automatically start in some situations.
To start eDirectory again:
Delete the /var/opt/novell/eDirectory/data/ndsd.pid file,
At a terminal prompt, enter /etc/init.d/ndsd start.
Novell has no current plans to change this.
The connection with eDirectory on guest operating systems is lost if the system time varies in the host operating system (SLES 10 or OES 2).
eDirectory relies on time being synchronized, and connections with eDirectory are lost if the system time varies in the host operating system. Be sure you understand and follow the instructions in “Virtual Machine Clock Settings” in the Virtualization with Xen guide.
