Novell eDirectory 8.8 for All Platforms

In this scenario, a clone was being created for an eDirectory server that had crashed.

The NCP server object for the crashed server still existed in the tree.

During the dibclone process in iMonitor, the "Create Clone Object" option was unmarked in an attempt to reuse the existing NCP server object.


Functions in the dib clone process prevent the usage of an existing NCP server object in the tree for this scenarior

The NCP server object must be removed prior to the creation of a clone to replace the crashed eDirectory server.
