Environment

Novell International Cryptographic Infrastructure (NICI)
Novell eDirectory 8.8 SP5
Novell NetWare 6.5

Situation

How do I tell which version of NICI I am running?

Resolution

On NetWare:
Load NWCONFIG | Select 'Product Options' | Select'View/Configure/Remove installed Products' | Look for NICI and NICIU0

Here you will see 2 entries for example:
NICI 2.7.0 Novell International Cryptographic Infrastructure
NICIU0 2.7.0 NICI U.S./Worldwide (128bit) Crypto XENG

It is also possible to see the NICI version from the server system console by entering the following:
modules XMGR.NLM or for short m xmgr*

(Address Space = OS)
NICI XMGR from Novell, Inc
Version 27010.02.01 September 25, 2006
Copyright 1996-2005, Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
This server is running NICI 2.7.0

On Windows:
Go to 'Settings' | 'Control Panel' | 'Add/Remove Programs'
Here you will see a reference to NICI, for example:
NICI (Shared) U.S./Worldwide (128 bit) 2.7.0

On Linux / UNIX:
The following will query all the installed packages and display only the NICI package.
rpm -qa | grep nici
For example:
[root@oes novell]# rpm -qa | grep nici
nici-2.7.0-0.01

Another way that will also show additional information independent of the Unix distribution is:
cat /etc/nici.cfg

Example:
[root@oes novell] cat /etc/nici.cfg
ConfigDirectory:s:16:/var/novell/nici
SharedLibrary:s:9:/usr/lib/libccs2.so
DAC:b:20:66:e2:d4:92:b0:c9:3a:9d:1e:ee:01:96:31:1a:9c:06:12:46:ea:79
MkUserDir:s:24:/var/novell/nici/nicimud
DAC2:b:20:54:ed:c8:4b:28:b4:54:6d:e7:de:2d:72:95:a7:9d:a8:dc:bd:e5:f2
NiciVersion:s:5:2.7.0
BuildDate:s:6:050906
NiciStrength:s:2:u0
In this scenario the NICI version is 2.7.0

(NOTE: On OES11 SP1, use this command: cat /etc/opt/novell/nici.cfg)
