Jun 14, 2006 10:05:54 PM Checking for unused workstations in container: PRV/CAMPUS.NOVELL
Jun 14, 2006 10:05:54 PM javax.naming.NameNotFoundException [Root exception is com.novell.service.jncp.NDSException: ccode = -601 (0xfffffda7)]

This error causes the currently scheduled instance of the removal process to stop, and not process any more containers. The removal will kick off again at the next scheduled time, go through the containers removing old workstations until it hits the container with the forward slash ("/"). At which point it stops processing again.


Rename Container to remove the forward slash ("/").
