Novell Open Enterprise Server (Linux based) Support Pack 2 or later.


When clustering is trying to load you will see "Error communicating with cluster (/_admin/Novell/Cluster/Cluster.cmd)  Is Novell Cluster Services running?"
Usually seen after updating using the rug oes channel.


In Novell Open Enterprise Server for Linux with Support Pack 2, the location of the clustering information has changed from"/_admin/Novell/Cluster" to "/admin/Novell/Cluster". The underline has been removed on /_admin.
Manually edit the /opt/novell/ncs/bin/ file.
Search for the INIT function and make the one change indicated below.
