Novell eDirectory for Linux


Every two days eDirectory on a SLES 9 server cores in the ndsd process.
Examining the stack using GDB shows we are failing in the NCPDestroyConnSessions function of the libncpengine.so library.


Novell has identified the issue as a fault in the NCPengine code. NCPengine is attempting to clear a connection for whom the memory has already been cleared. Novell hopes to release this patch in a post patch.
