Using iManager, after generating a Cluster report, under the "Distinguished name" it is expected to see an entry similar to: cn=SERVER.ou=OrganisationalUnit.o=Organization.t=TreeName
On the Linux platform it shows only the server name, on the NetWare platform it only shows only .CN for all nodes.


A Post Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 8 CMA.NLM addresses this issue on the NetWare Platform, available from Novell Technical Services.
On Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 Support Pack 1 on the Linux platform this has been addressed in the oes2sp1-stability-update, available trough the Novell update channels.
On a regular and mixed cluster all nodes need to be updated with the Post Novell NetWare 6.5 SP8 CMA.NLM or oes2sp1-stability-update respectivly as this information is retrieved from the master node, which can be any given node member of the cluster.
