Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 3
March 2012 Maintenance Release for OES2 SP3


Trying to update eDirectory object for pool or volume using NSSMU | F8 | F4 produces the following Error: Write Error


Fixed RPM: novell-ncpns
Fix has been released with the July 2012 OES Maintenance update (oes2sp3-July-2012-Scheduled-Maintenance)


This is caused by the segfault in adminusd.  We are making a call to MapGUIDToRemoteDN which is always returning a 0 but should return an error in the case the DN length is zero.
If the object doesn't exist, the null value was being passed to adminusd and causing the segfault.
