troubleshooting LUM

  1. rpm -qa | grep lum
  2. rcnamcd status should be running
    1. rcnamcd was NOT starting because the ldap server (MUST have replica for LUM) we were talking to had its KMO/cert expired (pkidiag), once that was fixed, namcd would start.
  3. rcnscd status
  4. to re-download the keys, namconfig -k
  5. ensure /etc/nam.conf is pointing to the correct ip addr/etc
  6. see also
  7. find lumdiag and RUN LUMDIAG (not released yet)
  8. turn on ldap debug
    1. ldapconfig set “LDAP Screen Level=all”
    2. or on NW modify the ldap group object and enable all ldap options
  9. get a supportconfig and review the lum.txt
  10. ensure rcnscd is STOPPED/not running
  11. screen -a
    1. ctr A ' "^A"
  12. tail -f /var/log/messages
  13. ldapconfig get
  14. namgroupadd -A -P -x ou=is,o=novell templumgrp
  15. ndsrepair -P
  16. nameconfig get | grep -i prefe
  17. nameconfig get | grep -i persis requires user ID to have a replica copy
  18. namuseradd -a cn=admin,o=novell -x ou=is,o=novell -g cn=templumgrp2,ou=is,o=novell minime


  1. One CASE we had to REMOVE the server from edir - this is EXTREME and typically you don't need to do that.
  2. ndsconfig rm -a cn=admin.o=org
  3. scrub script
    1. needed dos2unix
