Upgrade Problem - OES11


I have a strange error occur when upgrading a SLES10SP4/OES2SP3 system to SLES11SP2/OES11SP1.

During the "OES Configuration" section of the upgrade I get a box that says:

"Calling the YaST module `inst_edirectory_preconfig has failed."

Looking in the "/var/log/YaST2/y2log I see this:

"[Interpreter] ProductControl.ycp:1308 Can't find YCP client component inst_edirectory_preconfig: No such file or directory"

Any ideas on what provides "inst_edirectory_preconfig" and why it is missing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
