Can't Install eDir 8.8.7 in existing tree because of timeout


Environment: Windows 2008 R2, eDir 8.8.7

I am installing eDir 8.8.7 in an existing tree.
The install fails after quite a bit of time because of timeout. The
install log says, "install failed, too much time".

Authenticating to the directory is fast but when I try to search for
driver sets from the iManager overview page, it takes more than 3
minutes to find the driver sets from [ROOT]. I think this is the
problem during the install as well.

Using the GUI installer, it also takes quite a bit of time to connect to
the existing tree in order to choose the admin account, etc. However,
that part does eventually work. It's just when I say to begin the
install that things take forever and eventually timeout.

I've tried tuning eDirectory but nothing seems to help. dsrepair
returned only one error for 4 replicas, which I thought was too low. It
seems that there are always some errors and so zero errors on 3 servers
and 1 on the fourth seems too good to be true.

In any case, does anyone have any suggestions on how to troubleshoot
this process other than what is available in the eDir tuning document?

You're sure that the Windows firewall isn't in your way?

Could be. Ensure that your servers all have an index for Object Class.
That should help with the IDM driver set search as well.

Check the ports listed at the bottom of the page here:

Check your SLP configuration and that you can resolve things:

The problem did end up being with the firewall. Apparently, the admin
opened TCP and UDP only in one direction. The install could communicate
with the existing directory server to a point but the reverse traffic
was being blocked.

Thanks for the replies.
