Source: eDirectory or NDS
Explanation: An attempt was made by an application to add a replica to an eDirectory or NDS server that already holds a nonsubordinate reference replica of the same partition.
Possible Cause: If this error occurs during the eDirectory or NDS background process, discrepancies might exist in the replica rings of the server holding replicas of the partition.
Possible Cause: Discrepancies might exist between the replica ring on the eDirectory or NDS server holding the master replica of the partition and the target server.
Action: Determine whether the target server already holds a replica. To do this, use the advanced menu option Replica and Partition Operations in DSREPAIR on the target server.
If the target server already holds a replica and it is not listed in the replica ring on the server holding the master replica, destroy the replica on the target server, and add it again using Partition Manager in NDS manager.
WARNING: When Send All Objects to Every Replica in the Ring operation is performed on large partitions or partitions with numerous replicas, considerable traffic on the network can result.
If the read/write replica does not have a target server but the master does, perform a Send All Objects to Every Replica in the Ring operation from DSREPAIR.
