Users receive "Connection expired" message when they have no time restrictions.

Environment

Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 (OES 11) Linux
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux

Situation

Typical users have no time restrictions.  However, when running unattended ndsrepair jobs, they may (or may not) start to receive messages about their connection being expired.  If they do receive messages, they will get 5 of them - 1 minute apart.

Resolution

This is more of a cosmetic issue as the workstation will auto-reconnect after the connection is cleared.
As this matter can be an annoyance or generate help/service desk calls, engineering is working on a fix.

Cause

The timing between when an eDirectory database closes and when the "check allowed long time" function runs.
