Novell eDirectory 8.8 for Linux
If eDirectory cores, Novell Technical Support may find that there is memory corruption. They will ask that you enable "MALLOC_CHECK". The sole goal of this document is to identify the proper way to implement this setting and point to other documents on this topic.
For Linux -- Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES2) or Suse Linux Enterprise Server servers, do the following:
- identify the location of the pre_ndsd_start script
(current location is in /opt/novell/eDirectory/sbin)
- edit the pre_ndsd_start script and put the following line at the top
NOTE: eDirectory on SLES 12 or RHEL 7: You must add all environment variables required for the eDirectory service in the env file located in the /etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf directory.export
- Restart ndsd (rcndsd restart)
Note: this will restart ncpserv as well, and other services like clustering on OES may *not* reconnect properly. In this case, it may be more expedient to restart the entire server.
Here are a few TIDs with additional information on trouble shooting ndsd cores:
