The "IP address" field of a cluster resource shows empty in iManager and ConsoleOne when you check the properties of the cluster resource.
If you enter the IP address and save the changes and check again, the IP address field is empty again.


The problem is that the eDirectory link on the cluster resource to the Virtual NCP server is missing.
To add it, please do the following:

- In ConsoleOne, open the properties page for the cluster resource that has the issue.
- In the resource property page, you must disable the "IP Address" tab via the "Page Options" button.
- Close and reopen the property page for the Cluster resource.
- Go to the "Other" tab.
- Add the attribute "NCS:NCP Server" and point it to the virtual NCP server for the resource.
- Enable the "IP Address" tab again via the steps in #2 above.
- Click OK to save the changes.

Below is a full list of the eDirectory links:

- Clustered Volume (NCS:Volume Resource)
NCS:NCP Server -> Virtual NCP Server*
NCS:Volumes ->All Volumes

- Virtual NCP Server (NCP Server)
Resource -> Cluster Resource
NCS:NetWare Cluster -> Cluster Object*
NCS:Volumes -> All Volumes

- Volume (Volume)
nssfsPool -> Pool Object*
Host Server -> Virtual NCP Server*

- Pool (nssfsPool)
