namcd-Error while fetching context-parameter

Hi,

we have an repeating error under /var/log/messages.

The error states:

/usr/sbin/namcd[16500]: populate_groupHash_fromNDS: _nds_nss_struct_init with INIT_ALL is failed
/usr/sbin/namcd[16500]: _nds_nss_struct_init: failed to fetch workstation-context parameter, retval is : 2

Can anybody tell me what to do to get that error fixed?

haven't seen this before, but here is where I'd dig more

Check that eDir is healthy. On each server, run
ndsrepair -T #shows time sync between servers the current server
talks to, all should show in sync =yes
ndsrepair -E #shows sync state between servers the current server
talks to, all replicas should show in sync within an hour
ndsrepair -C -Ad -A #checks for (stuck) obits on the current replica,
there shouldn't be any that are more than an hour or so old.

Check the NSS and eDir logs for other errors that may point us more
usefully
/var/opt/novell/log/ncp2nss.log
/var/opt/novell/log/ncpserv.log
/var/opt/novell/eDirectory/log/ndsd.log

check NoRM, both general health and info on the NSS volumes.
