Symptom

"ERROR: SLP UA warning unable to contact Directory Agent. Verify DA availability, IP connectivity, DA discovery options and configuration."

Fix

The simplest fix for this solution is to load SLPDA.NLM on the network.  Then configure the other servers to register with the Directory Agent (DA) using the SYS:ETC\SLP.CFG file. For more information on configuring a Directory Agent and using the SLP.CFG file see solutions, TID# 10060296, How to create a Directory Agent with NetWare 5 and What is the SLP.CFG file and how is it used?

Setting the SLP DA Discovery Options in MONITOR to 04 is another solution.  As is applying SLP107FT.EXE, or later,  patch to update the SLP modules.
