How to access

I've installed 8.7.3 on and OES Linux (SLED10) server. I've verified and
ndsd is running. How do I access the server?
I've tried a Novell client from a workstation, but even if I put the
server's IP address in the tree field, I can't browse contexts and can't log
in.

Thank you,

AlaN

Have you set up slp on the server?
Is this a new tree or did it join an existing one?

Re: How to access

Funny you should ask....

It's the only server. (trying to learn this stuff)

I read through the whole "Using SLP with eDirectory" in the edir 8.7.3
documentation, but when I try to run /usr/bin/slpinfo I get "no such file or
directory".

Yast shows an SlpServer icon, which I've configured so it will be the DA.

----

Curiously when I read the edirectory 8.8 documentation it instructs me "with
eDirectory 8.8, you need to separately install SLP before proceeding with
the eDirectory install." Yet I can't find any download of SLP at all, which
is one reason why I decided to try installing edir 8.7.3.

Re: How to access

BTW, I can access the DHost HTTP Server with a browser on port 8010.

SLP shouldn't be required in that case.

What do you see if you run rcndsd status?

Erm, it's slptool on Linux. Where did you find the reference to slpinfo?

In the edirectory 8.7 documentation under the heading "Installing novell
edirectory on Linux, solaris, aix", subheading "SLP usage with edirectory"
Here:

Re: How to access

No. SLES10, then I downloaded and installed eDir_873_linux_full.tar.gz
The only OES I see for download is for SLES9.

Ahh. Therein lies the issue!
OES provides the services that you would expect from a Netware box, NSS,
NCP etc. They are not part of SLES.

THe current OES is based on SLES 9, but the upcoming OES 2 will be based
on SLES 10. It will be done as an addon product that can be installed at
the same time, or post install, as SLES 10. At present, what you are
trying to do will not work.
