Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2)


Though eDirectory is already configured and running, when running YaST | OES Install and Configuration, YaST tries to force a reconfiguration of eDirectory.


At times, because of either failing to complete the full installation (for various reasons) or some sort of hang or latency in completing the full installation, /etc/sysconfig/novell/edir, is not properly modified to reflect the configuration of eDirectory.

The section, SERVICE_CONFIGURED, should reflect the configuration of eDirectory by being set to 'yes'.  If this section is set to 'no', it should be modified accordingly.

Additional Information

This file, /etc/sysconfig/novell/edir, is modified late in the installation and configuration process--after the display adapter and printer detection phase.  In some cases, where the installation is either halted or interrupted during this phase, the file will not be correctly modified, causing this issue.  A defect has been logged and a fix submitted.
