Novell eDirectory 8.8 for NetWare 6.5


Working RADIUS server fails after upgrading server to eDirectory 8.8
Error 1673
RADIUS.NLM will not load
Authentication errors
Schema errors


RADIUS.NLM is end-of-life and no longer supported.  It will not work on servers running eDirectory 8.8.

The alternatives are
  • Use FreeRADIUS on a Linux (SLES, OES2, etc) platform
  • Run RADIUS.NLM on a NetWare server with eDirectory 8.7.3 (this is unsupported but should work)
