Environment

NetIQ eDirectory 9

Situation

What issues are seen when using eDirectory and the OpenSLP that ships with the SLES 12 and RH 7.2 platforms?

SLES 12 SP1
Good to go.

SLES 12
Problems with the shipping version: OpenSLP 2.0.0-2.9.x86_64.  Issues are seen with tree registration.

Redhat 7.2
Problems with the shipping version: OpenSLP 2.0.0-5.el7.x86_64.  This bundled version of OpenSLP is having similar issues of tree registration as above.


Resolution

SLES 12 SP1
Good to go.  See above.

SLES 12
Best resolution: update OpenSLP from the SLES channel.
(Alternative workaround: use the version of OpenSLP that ships on the SLES12 SP1 iso.)
For more information please see: https://www.suse.com/support/update/announcement/2016/suse-ru-20160517-1.html

Redhat 7.2
At the time of shipping there was no version of SLP available from Redhat for RH 7.2 that worked.  Fully patched 7.2 customers that continue to have problems are encouraged to contact their Linux vendor to see if any non-released patches may help.
