Novell SUSE 9 Server No Connection

I lost connection with my linux server (which has be running all year) that has the public drive and all the students drives. Yikes!! The server it still showing up on the eDirectory tree but it says there is no connection.  I can ping the server but there must be some other problem (I'm sure eDirectory related).

Suse Enterprise 9 server running OES
Netware 6.5 servers

OES v1 on the Linux kernel.

You say you can PING.  When you say it shows up in the tree, what do you mean?

Do the NetWare servers still "see" it?  Either via SLP or Timesync?  Have you tried accessing iManager on that server?

Let's step back a bit.

You're sitting at your desk, and you open ConsoleOne on your Windows XP Pro workstation, and look in the tree.  You don't see the OES/linux server but you do see the OES/NW6.5 servers?  No server object, but then you open iManager on one of your NetWare 6.5 servers and do see the OES/Linux server object?

You can PING the OES/Linux server and get a response.  

If you go to one of your NetWare servers and type in "DISPLAY SLP SERVICES" do you see services on all of the OES/NW6.5 servers but none on the OES/Linux server?  If you go into DSREPAIR.NLM on that same server and select "Time Synchronization" does it report that it can't reach the OES/Linux server?  
If you then go to the "advanced options" screen and select "servers known to this database" do you not see that server?

How about, can you do a nslookup on the DNS name and/or hostname of the OES/Linux server, from your PC?  Will it resolve?  Will a reverse-lookup resolve to the DNS name?

Have you looked at the server's /var/log/messages logfile to see if there's a general problem on the server?  Have you verified all the services are running?
