Novell eDirectory 8.8 for All Platforms


ERROR: -641 (ERR_INVALID_REQUEST) on moving NCP server objects with ConsoleOne or iManager.
Problem occurs only when master of the partition holding the NCP server objects is on Novell eDirectory 8.8 server. It goes away on moving the master of the partition to an Novell eDirectory 8.7.3 server.
Manually removing some attributes from the NCP server objects also enables the Novell eDirectory 8.8 server to process the move request successfully.


This is a bug occuring with Novell eDirectory 8.8 servers when the size of object to be moved is greater than 64 K. The bug has been fixed and the fix is included in the Novell eDirectory 8.8 SP1 release.
