Environment

Novell eDirectory 8.8.1 for All Platforms
Novell eDirectory 8.8.2 for All Platforms
Novell eDirectory 8.8.3 for All Platforms

Situation

NLDAP loads but fails to listen on secure (389) or unsecure (636) ports.
The Master Replica server for the ldap objects (of the server that cannot load nldap) was down.
 
After turning trace options on for the ldap server object. (See TID10062292 - How do I trace LDAP activity to a screen or log file?)  The following errors are seen after restarting nldap.

Resolution

This issue has been resolved in a future release of eDirectory.
 
Workaround:   Designate another server (through DSRepair) (preferrably the ldap server if it holds a replica of the ldap objects) to be the master replica server for the ring, then ldap will load.
