Fix for ConsoleOne Error -634 The target server does not have a copy of what the source

Error seen when attempting to authenticate to eDirectory in ConsoleOne on SLES 10 Linux: 

(Error-634) The target server does not have a copy of what the source
server is requesting. Or, the source server has no objects that match
the request and has no referrals on which to search for the object.

 The SLES Linux box does not have eDirectory installed on it.
 
The solution is, instead of specifying a tree name, specify the IP address of a server with a RW replica to authenticate to.  Specify the IP address in the tree field of the Novell Client login screen.

  1. this is true with imanager running on NW6.5 boxes not carrying replicas

  2. Hi

    when you say “specify the IP address of a server with a RW replica to authenticate to” What do you mean by RW replica? I did use the IP address in the tree field but now I get the following error: “Unknown meaning for error number 0x6F;Please call a Novell support provider”

    thanks

  3. Great piece of advise, works like a charm. I’m new to Linux and was struggling with getting C1 to work, so thought I missed something in the install / config.

    Cheers!
