Novell Open Enterprise Server (Linux based)
Novell eDirectory for Linux


During the installation of eDirectory into an existing tree or into a new tree, configuration process will stay at extending schema.

If ndsconfig is used after the OES server is installed w/o configuring eDirectory to either add the server into an existing tree or into a new tree, the configuration will complete.

No issues exist in schema or communication that would cause a failure extending schema.

Problem did not exist when trying to install the OES server using SP1.    


The problem with the OES SP2 installation during the eDirectory configuration was due to a semicolon ";" in the admin password.  When a password was provided for the admin account that did not include a semicolon ";", the configuration completed as expected.

This problem has been reported to Engineering.
