Novell ConsoleOne Saving Login Script for OU

When I try to save a login script in Novell, I am getting the following error message.

Unknown meaning for error number 0x1; Please call a Novell support provider.

An error Occurred writing the changes to NDS.
Some data may not have been written.

Close or Detail button, but when I click on Detail no further data exists.

Is this just something in using the deprecated client? It appears to be saving regardless?

That unfortunately is an annoying java-related error that is or usually is cosmetic.  If you go ahead and click the Apply / Close or OK you'll see the error you've written about.  Click the cancel to dismiss the error and cancel to leave the OU.  You'll be prompted about clicking Yes or No that you've made changes.  Click Yes to Cancel.

Go back into the login script and confirm that your changes are in place.

If they are not, it is possible there are eDirectory troubles most likely with timesync.  Please post back info from the above and hopefully it solves your issue.  If not, we will assist further.

Yeah, basically, when I click details it gives me nothing, but I can say that it does save the Login script.

Is there a way in Novell to work similar to Group Policy in AD and have the login scrip replicate downward to all clients. I'm wondering if the best approach is to use the Resource Profiles opposed to the logins script method?

The login script in eDirectory is saved inside the directory and is replicated automatically to all replica servers in the tree (a process that AD "took" from eDirectory).  The script isn't "replicated downward to clients" but rather should be reachable assuming the workstation/client has an IP and can get to the tree/server.

A resource profile in the client tells the client which server and tree should be used.

Something else about the client...you can use an IP address in the Tree "box" instead of the actual tree name to get around "can't connect to tree or server" which sometimes indicates a SLP (service location protocol) problem with resolution.
