When trying to add a new server on the tree, the operation will not finish, giving constantly the "partition busy" message in the screen
Before doing so, please check the next following lines to make
sure that the symptoms apply to your case.
To check if this is the problem you have with iMonitor, launch it on the server holding the master of Root, choose the Schema menu from the panel in the left and then choose "Schema Root" from the Class Definitions sub menu.
You will see here the entry information and the attributes of this object. Look for the "Partition Control" attribute. It will display something like:

If function is anything different than "Idle", it means that
there is a schema operation in progress. If you have control over
it try to finish it, otherwise a Novell Technical Support Engineer
will need to dial in to fix the issue.
To check for this problem with dsbrowse, load dsbrowse.nlm, Choose"Schema Browse", press F3 to see the properties of [Schema Root], choose "View attributes", choose Partition Control, View Value Details and then choose "Press
