Error -637 trying to move User object in the tree

I was able to move a user object from one context to another, but unfortunately I picked the wrong context. Now, when I try to move the object to the correct context, I get the "Error -637 After an object has been moved from one context in the tree to another, the Directory database will not allow the object to be moved again until all replicas of that object have been updated." I have waited 24 hours and was still not able to move the object. How can I force an update. Running on SLED 10 OES.

Thanks

First you have to check replica synchronisation. Sounds like one or more
servers haven't been updated with that information (so the replicas
aren't in sync). Fix that, and youre problem ist fixed too.

I use to be able to do a dsrepair -A ( I think???) on Netware, but what is the command on OES Linux?

Re: Error -637 trying to move User object in the tree

Obituaries, for all platforms, should be viewed in iMonitor under Reports:
Obituary Report. Run this on servers in the affected replica rings and
figure out why the obituaries are stuck and fix that.

Repairing the DIB has never been related to fixing obituary issues unless
there were, coincidentally, bigger DIB corruption issues that could
actually be fixed by ndsrepair, which is not usually the case. ndsrepair
is often used to timestamp obituaries, but as your obituaries are new that
shouldn't be an issue, and if it ever is an issue there is a timestamp
option within, you guessed it, iMonitor.

Good luck.

Re: Error -637 trying to move User object in the tree

After examining the replica configuration, I noticed a replica on a server VM that was apparently shut down for some reason. Once I restarted the VM the replica apparently finished it sync and I was able to move the object. Thanks.
