Cluster Resource loses registration with bindery.novell service when ndsd is restarted.

Novell Cluster Services 1.8.4
Novell eDirectory 8.8 for Linux
Novell eDirectory 8.8 for NetWare 6.5


When ds/ndsd is restarted on a server hosting a cluster resource the
resource will deregister from the bindery.novell service after an hour timeout.
  • Software that relies on slp/bindery.novell for resolution will not be able to locate the cluster resource.  An example would be SMS backup software.
  • eDirectory does not re-register with slp for cluster resource after ndsd is restarted.


Reported issue to engineering to address from a code standpoint.

First, before stopping and restarting ndsd for any reason, be sure to migrate any resources hosted by this server to another node in the cluster.  This way the resource will not lose the slp registration.
To get the cluster resource to register with bindery.novell, offline and on line the resource again..
