ERROR: "Unable to find a server hosting a R/W replica of [Root]

The "Schema update" task in Deployment Manager from the NetWare 6.5sp8 (OES2 SP1) overlay CD reports: "Unable to find a server hosting a R/W replica of [Root]", when the server hosting the [Root] replicas is running eDirectory 8.8 or eDirectory 8.8.1.

eDirectory 8.8.2 and above are not affected.


Upgrading the servers hosting the [Root] replicas to eDirectory 8.8.2 or later resolves the issue.
The issue has been reported to engineering, however running the latest version of eDirectory 8.8 is suggested before performing the operation.
