Replica is stuck in a New state
Unable to put RW replica on a NetWare 5.1 server


1)  First try running a repair on the server receiving the new replica and on the server with the Master replica of the same partition  Load DSREPAIR | Advanced Options | Repair local database | Set "Check local references" and "Rebuild Operational Schema" to Yes.  If this doesn't help, proceed with the next recommendation. 2)  Run DSREPAIR -XK2 on NW 5.1 to delete replicas from the server. (See TID7003126 for important information on the -XK2 procedure)  Remove the server from the replica ring.  Apply latest support pack on NW 5.1 server. Execute replica operation again.

Additional Information

It appears to be a schema problem on NW 5.1 running DS.NLM version 8.38
