Novell exteNd Director 5.2.1
Novell exteNd Application Server 5.2.1


Created a new Director 5.2.1 project in the Director Designer. When trying to deploy the project to the exteNd Application Server 5.2.1 receive the following error:

Error: "Deployment failure, reason: Failed to deploy EAR JAR %1.
Cleaning up EAR deployment
AgoDeploymentException: Failed to deploy EAR JAR %1.

Access to the exteNd Application Server was restricted. Meaning that a User ID and Password are required when accessing the Application Server.


This problem was caused by the exteNd Application Server's Administrative User ID and Password were not supplied for the Deployment in the project. This is corrected by using the following steps:

1. Have the project open in the Director Designer

2. Select Project and then Deployment Settings

3. Select the Server Profile Tab
a. In the 'Profile name' drop down select the Profile that should be used for the deployment
b. At the bottom of the Server Profile Page supply the Application Server's Administrative User's ID and password in the 'User name' and 'Password' Fields.
c. Press the OK button

4. Now deploy the project
