When trying to use `ndsrepair -S -Ad` to import schema from a remote NetWare tree a -634 error was returned. Using `ndstrace` showed several -634 and -622 errors as well with the +RSLV filter.


Configure the Linux server to point to the NetWare tree for its DA. Adding the following two lines to the /etc/slp.conf file and restarting the `slpd` service should do what is necessary.

net.slp.useScopes = yourScopeAccordingToNetWare

net.slp.DAAddresses = yourNetWareDAServerIPAddress

Note: There are spaces surrounding the '=' character. Restarting slpd should be possible with the following command:

/etc/init.d/slpd restart

After performing these steps the "Import Remote Schema" worked properly.
