Source: eDirectory or NDS
Explanation: A request was made to modify an eDirectory or NDS attribute using data that does not conform to the syntax specified within the eDirectory or NDS schema attribute definition.
Warning: Applying all solutions mentioned in this topic could make the problem worse if the actual cause of the problem is not known. Before following a course of action, make sure that you understand the cause of the error and the consequences for the actions suggested.
Possible Cause: This error occurs most often when an attribute value being added to an object is incorrect or when the value is pointing to an object that does not exist in the tree.
Action: Verify that the object name being added as a value is correct, and verify that the object exists in the tree.
Possible Cause: An attempt was made to modify an eDirectory or NDS attribute whose syntax is a distinguished name. The following are possible causes of the error:
Action: Make sure the object name does not contain illegal characters.
Possible Cause: A fault occurred in the application that is being used to manipulate the attribute values.
Action: Contact the developer of the application.
Possible Cause: The error might also occur when a bindery-type object (usually created by a third-party program) becomes corrupt.
Action: If the -613 errors are on these types of objects, delete all objects created by the program, and then reinstall the program.
Possible Cause: This error is also seen during the install or upgrade to NetWare 4.1 (or later versions).
Action: If you are installing or upgrading to NetWare 4.1 (or later versions), run Partition Continuity in NDS manager to view any synchronization errors on the partition that you are installing the server into. Using NDS manager, run Repair Local Database on the server holding the master replica of the partition.
If a new NetWare 4.1 (or later version) server hangs during installation while copying over the existing eDirectory or NDS objects, run DSTRACE on the server holding the master replica of the partition that you are installing the server into. Do this by setting the set DSTRACE = +sync command.
If an error exists after running DSTRACE, run DSREPAIR on the master.
If the problem still exists, run the set DSTRACE = +sync command to find the object returning the error and check the description field (and any other field which accepts a string) for any unusual ASCII characters. Correct the corruption or delete the object, and the replica should complete copying to the new server.
