Novell BorderManager 3.9 Support Pack 1
Master and slaves are on the same tree


When a configuration change is made in a S2S configuration as removing a slave server, when vpn master sends the updates to the slaves, they will hang. On the slave server console, a new screen will appear, VPSlave trace screen and the message " press any key" to continuing. After pressing any key, server will hang and a hard reboot will be necessary.


Fixed in NBM39SP2 support pack

Additional Information

As workaround, stop the vpn services on the master, then make the necessary changes and then restart the vpn services on the master. In this way vpn slave will not show any issues.
