Troubleshooting eDirectory Error Codes

You might have received a strange message from the eDirectory server. The code you received is -613, which means the Universal Password is invalid. The eDirectory engine cannot decrypt this message because it treats blank spaces as null values. In order to resolve this error, you need to look at all of the attributes and values of the eDirectory server. Try to think of all scenarios to solve the issue.

When you receive eDirectory error codes, it means that you are experiencing a problem with the database. You can identify these errors by checking the NetIQ error codes Web page. A number of these error codes are related to the database’s architecture, but the specific reason for their occurrence is not clear. You should contact Novell if you encounter them. If you continue to encounter these errors, make sure you check with Novell.

If you’re using eDirectory, you should check the operating system error codes as well. Certain background processes require functionality from the operating system, and so can generate error codes related to this platform. The operating system error codes returned by these background processes are the same as the ones generated by eDirectory. So, it’s a good idea to read the OS error code before attempting troubleshooting.

The file name you entered is invalid or you’ve used an invalid file handle. The directory name contains illegal characters. The file name contains other directories or files. The directory entry table (DET) was not accessible or was corrupted. You may also experience invalid directory handle due to the server going offline without rebooting the client. These errors are not uncommon and are typically related to the name of the file that you’re trying to rename.

If you’ve tried to update the object ID of an attribute, but you’re still receiving an error, try reloading the eDirectory server. Then, run DSRepair to fix the problem. Adding an ACL attribute value that conflicts with the existing trustee or creating a partition on the server with a specified object might also result in this error. This can be a frustrating process.

eDirectory can’t handle fully qualified names. However, you can map these properties to eDirectory attributes using the CN=This attribute. You can also contact RSA Security Customer Support to receive a hotfix for this problem. You can download it from the support site.
