I/OTest script to check if the disk I/O is causing slow performance

Slow VM Performacne, use IOTest to see if the disk IO is the culprit

This script will test the disk IO by copying 500Mb of data using the same block size as eDir uses and with the same api eDir uses “fdatasync”.
This writes 500 Mb of data each iteration to the iotest.log in the dib directory, usually the /var/opt/novell/eDirectory/data/dib/
It will overwrite the previous data in the iotest.log each time it runs.  Anything under 100 MB/s is a concern and will cause slowness for eDirectory and possible memory build up.  IO causes a bottleneck for events to be written to disk.  A build up of memory by ndsd can cause a ndsd to take all available memory (both virtual and resident) causing ndsd to core.

If slow IO writes are seen with the iotest script begin the process of adding hard drives and reducing the number of VMs per hard… Continue reading

New Features in DSfW OES11SP2

OES11SP2 is Available for Download

OES11sp2 is now available for download.

Sites and Subnets functionality is the biggest addition to DSfW.  It will allow the configuration of users to authenticate to a specific Domain Controller.  For this feature to work all Domain Controllers must be OES11sp2 servers.
Easy Wins configuration, Mac Client Support, Windows 8 Support,  Windows 2012 Support, and SASL NTMSSP Support are also big additions.
The SASL NTLMSSP Support will allow NTLM over LDAP bind request to be fullfilled.  Since more and more applications are supporting SASL NTLMSSP as the primary authentication mechanism for 2008 and 2012 servers this will allow more applications to work directly with DSfW.
The Novell Client has worked with well DSfW since OES2SP3, but that configuration was not supported.  It is now supported.
Download and test OES11sp2.  It is more robust and feature rich than previous version.  You will want to upgrade… Continue reading

New DSfW Monitor Script

I previously created two scripts, dsfw_processcheck.sh and dsfw_portchk.sh, one to monitor pids and one to monitor ports.  With the two script they are helpful to ensure the DSfW services are up.  A new script combines the two and adds additional options.  The script not only checks for pids and ports, but it can be used to create a cron job to run the script every 10 minutes by adding the “add” switch.  To remove the cron job use the “rm” switch.

If a DSfW server running DNS (or not) has a DSfW specific process stop or crash a quick stop gap measure is to monitor the DSfW processes and restart them if one or more of the DSfW processes stop.

If the DSfW server is an Additional Domain Controller (ADC) DNS might not be configured on the server.  If DNS is not running on the server remove the novell-named section… Continue reading

DSfW: Provisioning using python script

Need to do the DSfW install via a putty session/ no gui.  Look at this coolsolution article DSfW: Provisioning using python script.  It provides a python script to do the provisioning portion of the  install with out the need of X Server.  It is also reported to be faster.  Great for scripted installs.

Adding displayName to DSfW user accounts

BES10 requires AD authentication so DSfW is being deployed to accomplish this in eDirectory environments.
The displayName attribute is one attribute that must be populated.

The following attributes must be populated for BES10
displayName
mail
samAccountName
distinguishedName
objectGUID

All but two are automatically populated on DSfW users.
displayName and mail are not.  Hopefully mail is already populated since this is for an e-mail application.  displayName most likely is not.

This video will go over a script that can be used populate displayName with the value used in samAccountName.  It will also show you how to modify the script if the value from another attribute is desired to be used for displayName.

The script does the following search to find users and generate a ldif file

ldapsearch -Y EXTERNAL -LLL -Q -b “$DEFAULTNAMINGCONTEXT” -s sub ‘(&(objectclass=user)(samAccountName=*)(!(|(objectClass=Computer)(displayName=*)(cn:dn:=users)(ou:dn:=oessystemobjects))))’ dn: samAccountName |sed s[samAccountName[‘changetype:modify\nadd: displayName\ndisplayname’[g | grep -v ^# >/tmp/add_displayname.ldif

NDSD Health Check Script

I’ve received a great deal of feed back on the DSfW Health Check Script and applied some changes. One of the suggestions was to do only a ndsd (eDirectory) script. The DSfW Health Check Script works for both DSfW and eDirectory servers, but if all you want to do is check eDirectory health on a DSfW server or want a script only for ndsd that is smaller and simple this is an option.

I am always looking for suggestions. I’ve created a video for the ndsd_heaclthchk script. Watch to to learn about configuring it for your specific needs.

For for NDSD Health Check in the download section.

The configuration options are as follows

Troubleshooting High Utilization – High Utilization Gstack tool

Some times ndsd or another process can cause a server to go into high utilization or to become unresponsive.  A great TID to follow for OES servers is TID 7007332 – Troubleshooting ndsd becoming unresponsive on OES Linux.  A TID specific for DSfW servers to start with is TID 7010462- Troubleshooting slow logins and unresponsive DSfW server.

When trouble shooting a process stuck in high utilization or causing a server to slow down or become unresponsive looking at a top output for a daemon like ndsd with individual threads shown and a correlating gstack can show us which thread is in high utilization and what that thread is doing.  In most cases it is best to take a number of gstacks every 10 seconds to 60 seconds depending on the situation.  We can see not only what that thread is doing but if the same thread is stuck.  … Continue reading

DSfW and eDirectory Health Check

It is a good idea to periodically check the health of DSfW and eDirectory servers.

This video concentrates on a script I wrote that can be ran on both eDirectory and DSfW servers.

The script demonstrated in this video is called dsfw_edir_healthchk.sh.  To get the latest version of the script click on the DSfW Health Check link in the download section on DSfWDude.com.

A great TID to start off with for a eDirectory health check is TID 3564075.
On a DSfW server start off with an eDirectory health check as well as TID 7001884 which has DSfW specific commands to check the health and overall operation of a DSfW server.

The script does most of the suggestions in both TIDs mentioned above plus a few more checks.

For eDirectory there are 8 checks the script does and for DSfW 35 checks.

The script is not DSfW specific.  It can… Continue reading

DSfW Express Install in OES11SP1

With OES11SP1 there are two install options.  Express and regular.

The difference between the two is the express install will not prompt for the server and dib location, SLP configuration, the OES proxy user, or the DNS configuration.  If there are no other Novell DNS servers in the tree this is a good option.  Otherwise do the regular install to use the same DNS Locator object as the existing Novell DNS server is using.

Install error: ndsconfig error 74

Installs can be tricky especially when installing into an existing tree that has been around since NetWare 4.11, has multiple partitions, several locations, and dozens of servers.  If the tree is not healthy the install of DSfW has a greater chance of failure.  If communication with all servers is good, the tree is healthy, and the Preparing for Domain Services for Windows Install TID is followed then usually the install goes through with out any issues.

If there is a failure a common error is ndsconfig error 74.   This video goes over the error.  The troubleshooting of this error can be applied to a similar error “ndsconfig error 80″.

DSfW Slow Performance/Group Types

DSfW, like AD, has multiple group types.  This is found in the grouptype attribute.  TID 7004405 goes over the three group types.

Domain Local group: -2147483644
Global group: -2147483646
Universal group: -2147483640

The default group type is Universal group.   This group type can generate a lot of extra traffic causing the performance of the domain controller to suffer.

Global and Universal groups calculate a virtual attribute called tokenGroupsDomainLocal. This attribute is calculated for the group by the slapi layer. When a user is a member of several groups login times can increase. An increase in ndsd utilization can also result from the calculation of the tokenGroupsDomainLocal when a large number of groups reside within the domain.

If ndsd utilization is high or login times need to be reduced, change groups to Domain Local groups to avoid the calculation of the tokenGroupsDomainLocal virtual attribute.

Here is a command using ldapsearch… Continue reading

Windows 8 and DSfW

I am still in the process of using Windows 8 with Domain Services for Windows.  From what I have seen so far it behaves similar to Windows 7 as a workstation joined to the domain.  Logging in, mapping drives, running GPOs, executing login script from a GPO, all seem to work as in Windows 7.  The biggest challenge for me is getting used to the Start menu in Windows 8 and that  isn’t DSfW related.

Windows 8 with VMWare View 5.1.1 and DSfW OES11SP1 all appear to play well with each other.  Making templates and linked clones do not seem to have any gotchyas to look out for.  Let me know or the Novell Forums know if you discover a bug with DSfW and Windows 8.

Diagnostic tool for DNS Records

The DSfW team has a great tool called check-dns.pl to help diagnose DNS issue with DSfW.

The tool validates essential records for forward and reverse lookups.  This tool can be found at Novell Coolsolutions.

The tool might incorrectly report PDC and DC records if there is more than one Domain Controller.  The Coolsolutions article will be updated with a new check-dns.pl to address this issue.

Until the Coolsolutions article is updated you can download it from dsfwdude.com.
