This guide is designed to help you learn the ins and outs of processing stuck obituaries on OES2 Linux and SLES.
Updated: SLP Snoop shows SLP services and attributes by scope and service type.
This is a reimplementation of the old Novell Consulting “SLPSNOOP”
utility which doesn’t work on Windows Vista and above or Linux.
You’ve followed all the best practices and documentation. Your eDirectory trees are healthy and replicating with no errors. Time is in synchronization and ndsrepair shows no errors or external references hanging out there.
So, what do you do when eDirectory gets a request to remove 20,000 members from a group and replicates the change to all of the replicas?
Checks eDirectory object associations for NCS volume resources on OES Linux.
When iManager prompts you that new iManager plug-ins (NPMs) are available to install, are you in the habit of simply selecting and installing them?
Then later you can’t remember which ones you installed when? Or perhaps something isn’t working quite the same as it did before?
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a changelog of iManager plug-in updates?
This is a check script which runs ndsrepair on an OES (linux) server and alerts if the oldest partition continuity age on the server is higher than the specified (or default) thresholds. It also outputs the oldest partition age (in seconds) as performance data.
This is a check script which runs ndsrepair on an OES (linux) server and alerts if the time is out of sync from eDirectory’s point of view on any contactable servers. It also outputs a list of any servers that couldn’t be contacted.
Part of eDirectory health checking is to monitor for stuck obituaries in the environment.
I’ve put together a Nagios check script which can be used by system administrators to monitor the oldest obituary and alert if an age threshold is hit. It also outputs performance data which can be used to graph the trends of each obituary state.
This is a check script which runs ndsrepair on an OES (linux) server and alerts if the total obituaries on the server is higher than the specified (or default) thresholds. It also outputs all the obituary numbers in various states as performance data.
