Additional Information

This issue happens because the external reference server object is missing the "Status" attribute.

In order to prevent this error from occurring this repair option should be run from a server with replicas containing the server objects.  Additionally, when using NTP common time sources, NTP tools that provide a greater depth of information, such as ntpq can be used instead. 

Lastly, in eDirectory 9, the cn=monitor functionality will return this information as well.
