Novell Access Management 3 Linux Novell Identity Server
Novell Access Management 3 Access Administration
Novell Access Management 3 Linux Access Gateway


Linux Access Gateway configured to accelerate back end Web server. Can authenticate and access protected resources successfully. When making any changes to the rewriter configuration (changing internal or custom rewriter profile), the changes are only applied after

- purging all objects from cache (cache clear operation in nash) and
- restarting the proxy services (/etc/init.d/novell-vmc restart)

Failure to do so will result in all rewriter changes not being applied to the system


Post Access Manager Interim Release 1 builds of the LAG will have this fixed. The current workaround however is to create a .rewriter file in the /var/novell (touch /var/novell/.rewriter). With this file created, all changes will be applied immediately.
