On startup eDirectory reported a -618 error. A ndsrepair with the rebuild option was run (ndsrepair âR âl yes âi no ât no âr no âv no).
Afterwards the -618 on startup remained but another error was seen as well: -6020 ERR BAD RFL SERIAL NUM. The customer attempted to load NDSD so that the RFL would be ignored (NDSD_IGNORE_RFL=Y) but this did not resolve the issue.
A custom RFL location was being used instead of the default one. The default location held the newly rebuilt RFL files. Therefore, the _ndsdb.ini file was modified so any references to the old RFL directory were removed.
Upon restart, NDSD loads without errors.
