When something stops working in OES, debugging is incredibly difficult for the Administrator.
There needs to be a tool that checks all the OES service health. Certificates, services, communication, tree, etc. A tool that knows what to check and helps pin point the issue would be helpful.
I would love OES to be able to self heal, detect common problems and suggest or automate the repairs. I know Novell had a tool that was working in that direction but dropped that product.
