Cluster Resource stuck in "NDS SYNC" or "edirectory Sync" state

Environment

Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2)

Situation

After making a change to a cluster resources or creating a new Cluster resources the resources would stay in a "NDS SYNC" state.  Restarting edirectory or rebooting the cluster would sometime remove the "NDS SYNC" state.

Resolution

Cause:
During cluster installation the installer manually typed to cluster name and context with incorrect case. 

Fix:
Modify the /etc/opt/novell/ncs/clstrlib.conf file to be the correct case for the cluster name and context that edirectory shows.
  Example:
    ...
    p8 
    S'cn=cluster,o=novell'
    p9
    ...

You will have to modify this on all cluster nodes and then reboot each node.  You can do the reboot one node at at time to ensure cluster availability.
