Environment

Novell eDirectory 8.8 for All Platforms

Situation

With multiple instances installed, eDirectory upgrade reports "failed dib upgrade"

Resolution

Before the upgrade starts, all the instances have to be stopped.  Therefore, the health check will always report a time sync error.  If this is the only error in the health check file, this warning can be ignored.  The file in question is /var/opt/novell/eDirectory/log/ndscheck.log.  Here's an example of this timesync error:

+---------------------------------+-------+----------+--------------+---------------+
 Server Name                       Status   Time Sync  Time Delta      Replica State

.CN=nts34-1.O=novell.T=JJS-885.       DOWN      -626 -          -               ON
