Environment

Novell eDirectory 8.7.3.9 for NetWare 6.5
Novell iManager 2.7
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 7

Situation

After applying the FTF3 patch for eDirectory 8.7.3.9, iManager no longer allows logins. The error message that is presented on the login screen is:
"AdminNamespace.java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError"
This information is presented in the logger screen on the NetWare server:
"Incompatible JClient/DClient package
JClient Revision: 1.5.1256
DClient Revision: 1.3.1184
NDSNamespaceImpl.....87 java.lang.Exception: Unable to initialize
JClient: java.lang.VerifyError: Incompatible JClient/DClient package
JClient Revision: 1.5.1256
DClient Revision: 1.3.1184
NDSNamespaceImpl.....88 This could be because of NICI of native library issues
DirAuthenticator...1099 Unable to create AdminNamespace
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError

Resolution

The jclnt.nlm that is included with the ftf 3 patch is dated April 2, 2007 while the one that is included with NW65SP7 is dated August 29, 2007. If the file from SP7 is copied back to the sys:system directory on the server, iManager will run with no errors.
