Dependency Conflict for eDirectory Installation

Hi,

I was installing eDirectory for the first time from NOWS SBE package which includes SLES 10, OES2 SP1.

I have reached the step where I need to select the OES pattern to install. Wanting to try it out first I selected eDirectory and iManager only and their respective dependent services including SMS, LUM and Remote Manager. When I check the dependency a warning pop up that says:

There are no installable providers of xntp for pattern:novell-edirectory

I know that I can configure the ntp server once I have installed the whole thing in YaST, but I don't understand why there would be a dependency conflict on this. I have to uncheck xntp package in the eDirectory details in order to move on.

Since it's not clear from the above, have you already got a server up &
running that you now want to install eDirectory on or are you trying to
install NOWS SBE?

I ask because I would expect an existing NOWS SBE install to already
have eDirectory (it's kind of a key component).

It is very clear that he said he was installing eDirectory for the first time. What happened is that when you install the patterns with a NOWS CD, yast will throw a dependency error saying that xntp is not available for installing the eDirectory. And if you check to install xntp under the base package, another dependency error will occur.
I just choose to ignore these errors and move forward with the installation, and then go back to install the xntp at a later stage.
