OES2 SP1 and OES11 SP1

Hi all,

Question:

We have 3 OES2 SP1 32 bit servers, Server A, B and C

Server A is holding the Master Replica, server B a read write and server C a read write.

We added 3 new OES11 SP1 64 bit servers to the tree, server D, E and F and no replica's on the servers

If we do a ndsrepair -T on server A, we can see all servers, A,B,C,D,E and F

If we do a ndsrepair -T on server B, we can see all servers, A,B,C,D,E and F

If we do a ndsrepair -T on server C, we can see all servers, A,B,C,D,E and F

If we do a ndsrepair -T on server D we only see the server itself

If we do a ndsrepair -T on server E, we see server A and itself

If we do a ndsrepair -T on server F we only see the server itself

Should'nt it be the case that all OES11 SP1 servers see each other and the OES2 SP1 servers, even there is no replica and they are OES11 SP1?

regards,

Mark

Re: OES2 SP1 and OES11 SP1

No, the 'Servers Known to this Database' and 'Timesync' reports do not
necessarily show all servers in the tree unless the servers on which they
run know about all of the servers by holding a replica of them. That does
not really matter, though, as long as eDirectory knows how to look up
other servers. in your case, with six servers in the tree, it is probably
safe to go ahead and add r/w replicas to the other systems which should
allow them to work more-quickly (no need to go on the wire for most
operations) in responding to client requests.

If you are experiencing any symptoms that you think may be related to
this, be sure that SLP is properly configured for your tree since, without
replicas on them, servers and clients may rely on SLP to find various
parts of the tree.

Good luck.

Hi Ab,

Thanks for the info, but it is still strange that:

If we do a ndsrepair -T on server D we only see the server itself

If we do a ndsrepair -T on server E, we see server A and itself

If we do a ndsrepair -T on server F we only see the server itself

That Server E will see itself and Server A. While installing server D, E and F we just added them to the same tree and entered the same info for SLP DA.

Regards,

Mark
