Novell Identity Manager 3.5.1
Novell Identity Manager Driver - Linux and UNIX - Fan Out


The cdrv-install script does two things. The first one is the creation of the eDir objects. For this the script is asking for IP and port number to the eDir and uses both. The second part is the creation of the indexes. This is done by the script cdrv-index. This script is asking for the ip, username and password, but not the port to use.


This has been reported to development (Bug 365271) and will be fixed in the next version of IDM after 3.5.1 Currently, you can fix the problem by adding a -p xxxx everywhere ndsindex was called. Replace the xxxx with the port number such as 8389.
