Novell eDirectory 8.8sp1 for Windows
Novell eDirectory 8.8sp2 for Windows
Novell eDirectory 8.8sp3 for Windows


Repair network address cannot find the network address,  even though openslp is properly configured.


The workaround is to install the Novell Client on the windows server, use the hosts file, or DNS to resolve the name services. Use the NCP server object CN instead of the server hostname.

This issue has been resolved in eDirectory 8.8.5 which is available for download at https://download.novell.com
