Novell Access Management 3 Linux Access Gateway
nam3ir1.tar.gz patch (Novell Access Manager Interim Release 1) applied


When you apply the NAM3IR1 patch in the Access Gateway and the password of the user in the FTP server has a "@" on it, the lagupgrade process will fail. The ftp command formed by the lagupgrade command was: ftp default:stay@vm@ .... where the username is default and password stay@vm. The resulting error mentioned that vm@ is an invalid address


Fixed in 3.0 SP2.

Use a password that does not have a @ character for now. The underlying FTP client used by is curl, which supports such passwords. However, the credentials need to be encoded and this is not happening.
