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?

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.

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.
