Novell eDirectory for NetWare 6.5


Once eDirectory is applied to a NetWare 6.5 server running the XTier middle tier server (NetStorage, Zen Middle Tier), Apache takes 3-4 hours to fully initialize. The Apache 2.0.59 for NetWare console screen is blank and does not show the listening ports or modules loaded.
This occurs when Apache attempts to load the module MOD_XSRV.NLM. This is the module that connects Apache to the XTier middle tier server used by NetStorage and Zen. Only Apache servers loading MOD_XSRV.NLM will have this issue.


This issue has been solved in eDirectory or higher versions
