Environment

Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2)

Situation

Tsands would fail to load on the OES2 host with the error "Tsands failed to register with smdr"
The command /opt/novell/sms/bin/./smsconfig -l tsands was used. The other TSAs such as tsafs and tsaif would load fine.

Resolution

In order for tsands to load it must be able to communicate with edirectory. Check the
/etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/nds.conf
to see what ip addresses and ports edirectory is listening on. Ex.
Check to make sure that edirectory is listening on port 524 as in the above example. Edirectory does not support any other ports.
Check to make sure that edirectory is listening on the correct ip addresses. You can add multiple ip addresses that correspond to NICs in the server as in the following steps:

Follow these steps:

1. Stop eDirectory using ndsmanage
2. Keep a copy of /etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/nds.conf
ex: cp /etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/nds.conf /etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/nds_org.conf
3. Edit the /etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/nds.conf as follows,
Change,

to

n4u.server.interfaces=,@524
to whaterver ip addresses are in the box. If multiple NICs are used then these addresses can be added. If these are public addresses it may cause a security problem. Best if they're internal addresses.

4. Restart eDirectory using ndsmanage
