What happened to the Saved Login Feature in Imanager 2.5?#

http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tip/15322.html

But, I can't get it to work. -jim

Issues:#

On Linux on ino0L900, PHP needs ot be upgraded.

On ino0s701, GUI seemd to be very slow when finding focus enter the user name and tree name in the GUI. (in X-Windows)

Solaris#

To Install use
iManagerInstallSolaris.bin -i console
The install logs are at /var/opt/novell/tomcat4/webapps/nps/WEB-INF/logs/install/iManager_Install_2.5_InstallLog.log

iManager_InstallLog.log is the sumary file of all errors.

Can not get iManager to Launch. No errors in any logs I can find.


Look at...
tail -f /var/opt/novell/tomcat4/logs/catalina.out

...

The above does not appear until you try to login from a browser.

The above makes me wonder a couple of things:

  1. Which jclient.jar is actually being used?
  2. Is iManager 2.5 really intended to be used on 8.7.x? (I'm assuming that DClient version is linked to eDirectory version.)

Looks like the upgrade on ino0s701 didn't upgrade Tomcat:
# pkgparam tomcat4 
none
US/Eastern
/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sadm/install/bin
/usr/sadm/sysadm
tomcat4
Apache Tomcat Servlet Container
4.1.27
application
sparc
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat
NDS-UI-SOLARIS20031016082107
tomcat4
/var/sadm/pkg/tomcat4/save
Oct 18 2004 17:10
# pkgparam -d tomcat4.pkg tomcat4
tomcat4
Apache Tomcat Servlet Container
4.1.30
application
sparc
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat
none
SIDS-SOLARIS920041220163521

After manually uninstalling both httpd and tomcat4 packages, then adding this symlink:

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     other          3 Jun 28 16:46 java -> jre

... all is well with iManager on ino0s701.


Attached a DRAFT document for installation on Linux and Solaris. It is incomplete.
