OES SP2 eDirectory install error

Folks,

I'm working on a pilot for the US Navy using OES2 sp2. We are trying to get iFolder up and running and when we are asked to configure eDirectory we get the following error:

ndsconfig failed to configure and start edirectory oes2 sp2 bind to port 524 on said IP address.

We were in the process of using Yast to add-on a product. Also, adding other products resulted in MANY errors.

All networking functions are fine are are the configs for LDAP should be good.

This is basic stuff and we have spent all of labor day weekend trying to get this to work.

Re: OES SP2 eDirectory install error

Could you describe a little bit the scope of your testing?
Are you familiar with OES2, and you just want to test the new SP2, or is
this your first OES2 testing at all? In the latest case, you better use
the released OES2SP1 rather than the beta version.
Also, is this a standalone install or are you installing into an existing
tree?

Re: OES SP2 eDirectory install error

mcobb,

do you install OES on a physical or a virtual system ?

What exact error code did you get when you tried the installation ?
Are you able to switch the server console to a text session and check a logfile ?

/var/opt/novell/eDirectory/log/ndsd.log

Also please check with "date" if the current system time matches the one from an existing server of the edirectory you want to join.
