Novell BorderManager 3.9

Novell BorderManager 3.9 Support Pack 1


When accessing iManager, BorderManager, Proxy Services, application proxy, http, Logging tab and enable logging, the profile type only gives the option to select Extended or Common but not both as it was possible on previous versions.


That is working as designed. The idea behind it was to use Novell Audit to get common log info but, due to the difficulties to install and enable Novell Audit to get this info, this feature is back in NBM39SP2 support pack.

Additional Information

As workaround to get both common and extended logging on BM 3.9:

- Set the logging type to 'common' with iManager
- Made a backup config.xml file
- Edit the backup config.xml file so that the enabled attribute of the
extendedlogoptions tag read 1 instead of 0
- Reimport the config.xml file into the server
