Source:  eDirectory or NDS

Explanation:  An attempt was made to perform an operation or submit a request to a server that exists in a different eDirectory or NDS tree.

Possible Cause:  Occurrence of this error during an attempt to communicate with a server or during an eDirectory or NDS background process indicates the target server has an object that exists in the source server's eDirectory or NDS tree; however, the target server now exists in a different eDirectory or NDS tree.

Action:  If a server has been lost and reinstalled into an eDirectory or NDS tree other than its original tree, the server's object must be removed from the original eDirectory or NDS tree.

To remove a server that has been installed into another eDirectory or NDS tree, do the following:

  1. Confirm that the server claims to belong to a different tree.

    This can be done by using the config command on a NetWare server.

    If the eDirectory or NDS tree name display is different, proceed to step 2. Otherwise, contact a Novell Support Provider.

  2. After confirming the eDirectory or NDS tree names, shut down the target server or temporarily disconnect it from the network.

    This will allow the administration utilities to ping the server and not receive a ping reply. If the utility receives a ping reply when attempting to remove a server object from the tree, the utility will not allow the object to be removed. If the utility does not receive a ping reply, the object will be removed.

  3. Remove the server object from the tree.
