Novell Client for Windows 4.91 Support Pack 2 for Windows XP/2000/2003
Forgotten Password Self-Service for the Novell Client
The nsimPasswordReminder attribute was introduced with eDirectory 8.8 and NMAS 3.0. If eDirectory 8.8 (or greater) has not been installed into the tree, the schema definition for nsimPasswordReminder will not be available .
This will only effect those that selected the action for the Forgotten Password feature as "Show hint on page" option in the Universal Password Policy, Forgotten Password Action.
To extend the schema for the nsimPasswordReminder attribute, do the following:
1. Download and install Security Services 2.0.2 (or greater) patch, which includes NMAS 3.1.1.
2. When the Security Services Patch is installed, it will lay down the schema files, however it will not extend the schema.
3. Extend the schema with the following files: NMAS.SCH, NSPM.SCH, NSIMPM.SCH
These files are located in the following directories:
Use NWCONFIG | Directory Options | Extend Schema | (authenticate) F3 to specify a directory and file.
Linux, Solaris, AIX and HP-UX:/opt/novell/eDirectory/lib/nds-schema (relative to where eDirectory is installed)
After extending the schema and setting the ACL for the nsimPasswordReminder attribute, the hint feature will be available for the Novell Client 4.9 SP2 clients.
