Source: eDirectory or NDS
Explanation: An attempt to walk the eDirectory or NDS tree or to resolve an object name failed because no referrals to servers holding replicas of the object were found.
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: An attempt to walk the eDirectory or NDS tree or to resolve an object name failed because the source server was unable to locate any servers holding replicas of the object.
Action: Verify that the replica rings are consistent. This can be accomplished by running the Continuity Check in NDS manager.
Possible Cause: Occurrence of this error during an attempt to connect to the target server could indicate LAN/WAN issues, such as SAP/RIP filtering, or discrepancies in the connectivity between partition boundaries.
Possible Cause: Occurrence of this error during an eDirectory or NDS background process could indicate discrepancies in the connectivity between partition boundaries.
Action: Verify all network addresses as well as all remote server IDs on the source and target servers using the Advanced Menu options in DSREPAIR.
Verify the partition connectivity by using the following steps:
Start at the [Root] partition and ensure consistency between the replica rings of the servers holding a replica of the partition.
Continue this process downward through the eDirectory or NDS tree, examining each partition root, until the targeted partition is reached.
Ensure each replica ring has a master replica.
Ensure any required subordinate reference replicas are in place.
