Cannot cleanup container which contains license objects

Hi,

I am cleaning up a container (OU) which is not used any more.

But I cannot delete it because it contains Novell netware license objects.

Example:
Novell\+nLSProduct\=BorderManager Access Control\+nLSVersion\=370x

When I try to delete it via iManager.
(Error -629) The object being deleted or modified is not a leaf object. A container object that does not contain any objects is considered a leaf object, and therefore can be deleted.

I have no netware server(s) anymore in my tree so I can't delete it via NLM tools.

Kr,

Joeri

Re: Cannot cleanup container which contains license objects

One way to fix this is to call Micro Focus/NetIQ/Novell and have them help
you. I thought there was also an option in ndsrepair now that would let
you remove the IRF from license objects, but I'd need to look.

Ah yes, this one: https://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7012518

Hi,

We are running a newer version of EDIR:
Product Version: eDirectory for Linux x86_64 v8.8 SP8

By deleting via iManager I try to delete the sub object : SN: 15154558
(Error -672) The client does not have sufficient rights to complete the requested operation. For servers, this error in DSTRACE means that the replica list for the target server does not match the replica list for the source server.

I am also a bit afraid of that command in that TID:
ndsrepair -R -Ad -NLD

I don't what what it does and what impact it has for other things.
I don't think this command is specially designed for deleting those old license objects...

Kr,

Joeri

Being cautious about ndsrepair is smart; normally you should not use it,
other than for reporting (-E, -T) unless you believe the repair you run
will fix a problem you have, as in this case.

Why do you not believe it is for the license objects? It does not delete
them, but it does delete the IRF protecting them, meaning ou can then
delete them, which is what the TID indicates.
