Novell NetWare 6.5
iMonitor shows large values for the Max Ring Delta in eDirectory 8.7.x
Last successful synchronization is under an hour.
No errors in DSTRACE or REPORT SYNCHRONIZATION STATUS
1. There is actually a problem with replica synchronization. Looks for an error count in iMonitor - Agent Synchronization.
2. There are Subordinate Reference replicas in the ring. The trancitive vectors will merge, but will take longer than real replicas.
3. If there is only one server in the ring then this value will climb. Since we have no fault tolerance in this situation the value represents the amount of data that is at risk.
