/etc/opt/novell/ncs/resources.xml file will have duplicate entries for your cluster resources.

After a cluster down and a clean reboot of all nodes the first time you go into iManager you do not see the duplicates.

If you go into the properties of a cluster resource then when exiting you see the duplicate resource show up.  At this time the resource becomes unmanageable.


The duplicate resources are showing up for one of the three following reasons:
  1. The case of the "clusterDn" in /etc/opt/novell/ncs/clstrlib.conf is not correct.  You can correct this on each node and then reboot and this will fix the problem (the new clstrlib.py is not needed if you correct the case).
  2. Spaces were in the distinguished name of the cluster and they were not being handled correctly.
  3. Sometimes LDAP was given _ instead of spaces.

A new /opt/novell/ncs/bin/clstrlib.py file is available to fix all three of the above problems.  It will be dated April 2006 or later.  After copying in the new clstrlib.py file delete the current clstrlib.pyc file and reboot.  This will need to be done on all nodes in the cluster.
