nds-imonitor crashes ndsd on remote server

Jump to solution

I had this now at least 3 times. I open nds imonitor on an OES 2018SP2 server and open an edirectory object like a server or somthing else. If I then try to change the replica to a replica on another server as the one on which nds-imonitor is running, ndsd on the server holding the replica I tried to change to, crashes with status 11/SEGV.

Has this anybody seen, too?

My current workaround is to open nds-imonitor on the server with the replica i want to see in another window/tab. Not a big issue, but quite annoying, expecially if I had a big server farm and many people, who are  able to access https://server-ip:8030.

I've not heard of this before so I checked with our eDir support folks.  The 2nd level support has always directed that a new iMonitor instance should be opened for / on each eDirectory server, as per your "workaround". Technically, the workaround is the directed method.

But, if this issue is a known one, it would be a good idea to remove the links, which induce a crash of ndsd on the other server, to avoid crashing ndsd.

In my small environment, this is no problem, because everybody, who opened nds-imonitor without my permission, has a high risk of getting fired, so this simply does not happen. But in another environment, that could easily lead to not responding edirectory-servers, which is not a good situation.

I'd recommend to unload iMonitor on OES2018SP2 for the time being via the host console or

ndstrace -c "unload imon"

In order to add weight to the defect, I have created an SR for you and assigned it to the technician that I was working with on Thursday.  He will keep the SR open for a couple of days and then close it.  You will be notified when a fix is available.

Not yet. The underlying issue has been identified, though. So we can expect a fix rather sooner than later.
