Novell Identity Manager Identity Manager 3.0
Novell eDirectory 8.8 for Solaris
Solaris 9


New installation of Identity Manager 3.01 on Solaris 9. eDirectory 8.8 sp1 has already been installed. When running the install script and selecting option 1 : Metadirectory Server. the following error is returned.

eDirectory not found
eDirectory 8.7.3 or later has to be installed on this system to install the Identity Manager install set.

The ndstat command confirmed that eDirectory was installed.


The ndsconfig get command showed that no port number was assigned to the nds interface, just an ip address.
Assigning an ip address and port 524 to the nds interface with the command

ndsconfig set n4u.server.interfaces=@524

corrected the problem and allowed Identity Manager to be installed successfully.
