Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 3
Novell Cluster Services 1.8.4


Using iManager to create a cluster resource you would get the following error:
Clustering Error: A system error has occurred while managing the clustering software (click the "More Info..." link below for the stack trace)

Error Message: Unknown error with error code: 497.

In the /var/log/messages you would see the following error:
ncs-configd: createVirtualNCPServer failed: {'info': 'NDS error: entry already exists (-606)', 'desc': 'Already exists'}


The virtual server object name was already in use in edirectory.
Delete the old virtual server object and then you can successfully create the cluster resource.
