Event Viewer records the following Event ID 8020 error message for the Directory Service Manager for NetWare (DSMN):
To work around this behavior, do one of the following:
- Remove the specified user account from the NetWare-based server. DSMN then recreates the account as part of the normal synchronization.
- Remove the NetWare-based server from DSMN management, and then add it back.
To determine what DSMN action caused the error, subtract 10001 from the error (10256 - 10001) or (10239 - 10001), and convert the decimal number to hexadecimal. The hexadecimal number is the NetWare error returned to DSMN by NetWare when the error occurred.
The error 10239 maps to a NetWare error of 238(EE), which maps to ERROR_OBJECT_ALREADY_EXISTS. The error 10256 maps to a generic NetWare error of 255(FF). This can be any of several errors, depending on the DSMN actions.
