Environment

Open Enterprise Server 11 SP1 (OES11SP1)
Novell-DNS

Situation

When installing Novell-DNS the following error when installing DNS through YaST:
NCP SERVER OBJECT CONFIGURATION FOR DNS FAILED WHILE CONFIGURING NOVELL DNS SERVICES

Resolution

Take a ndstrace while extending Novell - DNS schema
Enable time, tags, ldap, scma, scmd, and misc in the ndstrace (see TID 7002672 on how to use ndstrace and log the output).

Look for errors in the traces, example:
1440421632 LDAP: [2013/09/10 14:18:51.163] DoModify on connection 0x4866e00
1440421632 LDAP: [2013/09/10 14:18:51.163] modify: dn (cn=IS1,ou=PRV,o=NOVELL)
1440421632 LDAP: [2013/09/10 14:18:51.164] modifications:
1440421632 LDAP: [2013/09/10 14:18:51.164] add: dnipDNSServerVersion
1440421632 MISC: [2013/09/10 14:18:51.164] Entry .IS1.PRV.NOVELL.NOVELL_TREE. has an Illegal Attr Name: .dnipDNSServerVersion.[Attribute Definitions].[Schema Root], failed, illegal attribute (-608)
1440421632 LDAP: [2013/09/10 14:18:51.164] DDCModifyEntry failed, err = illegal attribute (-608)
1440421632 LDAP: [2013/09/10 14:18:51.164] Sending operation result 65:"":"NDS error: illegal attribute (-608)" to connection 0x4866e00

In this case dnipDNSServerVersion attribute is failing to be added to dnipDNSDHCPServerVersion objectclass
If this is the case contact Novell Support to modify schema and add dnipDNSServerVersion to dnipDNSDHCPServerVersion objectclass.
