Novell eDirectory 8.8 Support Pack 2
After upgrading to eDirectory 8.8.2, creating NDS archives
through dsrepair fails occasionaly. When it fails, the dsrepair
screen never releases control and after a while the server becomes
unresponsive and eventually freezes. It is only possible to jump
into the debugger at this point.
eDirectory 8.8.2 has changed the way it internally handles
stream files. The problem would only be encountered if one of the
stream files that dsrepair is trying to archive happens to be used
at the moment of the repair. The only interim workaround would be
to make sure that no stream file is open at the moment that the
archive is being taken.
A fix for this is included in eDir 8.8.2 FTF2
