A3: A Novell 5.1 server will perform a registration for each service it needs to advertise. This is typically one for nwserver.novell and an ndap.novell for each replica the server holds (if there were 4 replicas on the server, there will be 4 different ndap.novell registrations). There are also other services such as srs.novell for the NDPS Broker (BROKER.NLM) or rconsole.novell for the Java Rconsole. So it depends on what is loaded on the server. Each of these services will default to having a lifetime of 1 hour (you can change this by using the SET SLP SA DEFAULT LIFETIME parameter on each server advertising services). The SA will reregister the service so it has a new one-hour lifetime within 128 seconds of when it is going to expire.
