The /var/opt/novell/eDirectory/log/ndsd.log shows the following errors:
Loader Failed:for /opt/novell/eDirectory/lib64/nds-modules/libncpengine.so,error /opt/novell/eDirectory/lib64/nds-modules/libnds.so.1: undefined symbol: MASVXDSDeregisterService,errno 2
NCPShim Init Failed, error -5984
This can be accomplished by using one of these commands:
rpm -qa | grep -i open_enterprise_serverIf this package is not installed, it can be installed using rpm, zypper or rug.
rug se open_enterprise_server (on OES2)
zypper se open_enterprise_server (on OES11)
If the packages are not installed properly, they can be reinstalled. Please verify if these files exist on the server :
/etc/novell-releaseIf these files are not existing, the preferred method is (re-)installing the mentioned packages. As temporarily work-around manually copying the /etc/novell-release from a working server, with the same version of OES installed.
