broken admin user

I am having problems with my admin user. When I go in to change the
rights for a folder or file, it tells me that it failed to add the
trustee and that I may not have sufficent rights. I have checked the
user at the root level and made sure he has supervisor and all other
attributes. I also tried to add another user to the top level and got
the same results. I then created a completely new user, gave them
supervisor as assigned rights, added them as a Trustee of root and gave
it supervisor assigned rights and again got the same result. I have run
dsrepair and that has not made a difference. The OS version is Netware
6.5 Support Pack 5, the eDirectory version is 8.7.3.7 SMP and my NDS
version is 10552.79. I checked time sycronization with my other servers
as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jay

Start doing a proper health check.

Re: broken admin user

There may be an IRF blocking file system or NSD rights flowing down to
the affected server. Try granting explicit S rights to the affected
server object.

Also, check licensing: You should have an NLS_LSP object for each 6.5
server, in its container. A 6.5 server license object should be in the
same container as the server object(s), or above that in the tree, and
not assigned to any server. If non-MLA, a 6.5 user (conn) license needs
to be in the same container as the user objects, or above that in the
tree, and not assigned to any server. Make sure the two license types
are successfully being consumed.

Re: broken admin user

I don't see anything labled as an NLS_LSP object. I went to new object to
add one and I don't see anything. When I type in version at the system
console it tells me that my license is audited, but that is the way my
other servers are showing as well. My apologies, I have kind of been
thrown into this situation by the person that was here before me.

Thanks,

That's a problem then. On the console run Setupnls, login as admin
(supplying the context) when it asks.

Re: broken admin user

Andrew,

Does it take a while or a restart for that change to propogate? I ran
that tool, found the item in the tree now, but I still get the same error
when I try to add a trustee.

Thanks,

Jay

Re: broken admin user

That change does not have to propagate, it is server-centric. Now you
need to go over the rest of the licensing items I listed, one by one;
they /all/ have to be OK for licensing to work.

Also, did you "Try granting explicit S rights to the affected server
object" as I suggested?
