Novell eDirectory 8.8 for Linux
- Added a new Linux server with eDirectory 8.8 into an existing tree
- Noticed a large increase in synchronization traffic. (Note: this can be measured with tools that log all packets, especially NCP ones.)
- Gathered NDS traces and determined that the sssactiveServerList values were being updated quite often. Here's an example with Outbound Synchronization and Outbound Synchronization Detail enabled:
OSyncD: put valueless value succeeded, .sssActiveServerList.[Attribute Definitions].[Schema Root]. MTS [2008/08/27 8:03:14, 14, 1].
Disable Secret Store on the new Linux Server.
