Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 8
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux
Novell eDirectory 8.8 for Linux
Novell eDirectory 8.8 for NetWare 6.5


During the upgrade to eDirectory 8.8.5, the database cache configuration is changed and a hard limit of 200,000 KB is set.
The hard limit is only set during the upgrade if no hard limit was specified before.
If the database cache size is to small, this can lead to performance issues.


In case the preset database cache size is to small, the size can be adjusted using iMonitor or by editing _ndsdb.ini.
