Stuck Network Addresses

Hi There,

I've been looking around for a while for an answer to this question but there doesn't seem to be a definitive answer to it.

What's the best way to clear stuck network addresses for users in eDirectory running on OES Linux.

I am looking for something of an equivalent to DSREPAIR N1 from NetWare.

The ndsrepair utility doesn't seem to offer the same functionality.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

-Iain

LDIF

dn: cn=bob,ou=whatever,o=yourco
changetype: modify
delete: networkaddress

It probably doesn't. It probably won't.

Re: Stuck Network Addresses

Hi

For reference this option does exist and work with latest versions of ndsrepair in OES (we run OES11SP2 - eDir 8.8SP8)
Command is

ndsrepair -R -Ad -n<#days>

We just ran into an issue, moving replicas from NetWare to OES and had to clear stale entries. We ran "ndsrepair -R -Ad -n1" and it cleared the entries.

HTH
Cheers
David

Interesting, thanks.

I would be surprised if any Network Address values were the problem for a
replica add / replica delete. But since you're doing a database repair,
it may have fixed something else while it was at it.

Re: Stuck Network Addresses

alternate to the LDIF, you can use an LDAP browser over port 636 (secure) to delete the network address attributes,. I use Apache Directory Studio, but most will let you do this
