Re: issues with DHost Console for NetIQ eDirectory 9.0.3.1

It may help if you describe what you think you should be seeing, and use
CODE tags around anything meant to be treated verbatim.

My guess at what you see as wrong is that dsrepair is loaded; why is that
running? What were you trying to repair, and why?

Re: issues with DHost Console for NetIQ eDirectory 9.0.3.1

in short:
dhostcon.exe is broken, opened a SR for that ..

for example:
- dhostcon.exe sometimes is case-sensitive (ismodloaded), other times not (load)
- dhostcon.exe ismodloaded works only for a few modules
- dhostcon.exe unload works only for a few modules

------------------------
1. 'ismodloaded' is case sensitive (dsrepair is loaded)
------------------------
.\dhostcon.exe 192.168.0.1 ismodloaded DSREPAIR.DLM

results in
Module "DSREPAIR.DLM" is loaded.



.\dhostcon.exe 192.168.0.1 ismodloaded dsrepair.dlm

results in
Module "DSREPAIR.DLM" is not currently loaded.


this might be expected behaviour on linux, on windows it's not. if it's wanted that way,
it should be made clear in documenation and in the cmdline. and used consistently with
all switches of the tool (which is not the case atm).

------------------------
2. 'ismodloaded' reports running modules as not loaded
------------------------
.\dhostcon.exe 192.168.0.1 ismodloaded NLDAP.DLM

results in
Module "NLDAP.DLM" is not currently loaded.



.\dhostcon.exe 192.168.0.1 ismodloaded nldap.dlm

results in
Module "NLDAP.DLM" is not currently loaded.


same with nmas, pki, sasl, dhlog, ... dhost.exe for example is found though

------------------------
3. load <module>, other than ismodloaded, is case insensitive
------------------------
.\dhostcon.exe 10.252.130.213 load dsrepair.dlm

results in
Module "DSREPAIR.DLM" has been loaded.


inconsistent with ismodloaded and load

------------------------
4. load module works (even case-insensitive), unload can't find module
------------------------
.\dhostcon.exe 10.252.130.212 load nldap.dlm

results in
Module "NLDAP.DLM" has been loaded.



.\dhostcon.exe 10.252.130.212 unload NLDAP.DLM

results in
ERROR-DHOSTCON-FFFFE8A9(-5975): Module "NLDAP.DLM" is already unloaded

It's open; is that what you wanted to know? I suspect you have a Service
Request open through Vincent; if so, he can probably give you more details
than I can. Also he, or whoever is working the SR, is the person who can
share information with engineering or product management regarding the
priority that should be given to this bug over others.
