Novell iFolder 2.1
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 5


Customer wanted to add an additonal LDAP context to the iFolder LDAP server as some user objects had moved in the tree.

iManager / iFolder Server admin refused to return any contexts when clicking the search button.
Creating a new LDAP server did not allow the adding of any new contexts.
LDAP traces showed that a full list was being returned to the iManager server, just not displayed.


As yet unresolved.
As a workaround we manually added a value to the attribute


Modify the Attribute iFolderLDAPContexts on the iFolder_ldap01 object in the tree.

This can be done in Console One under the other tab or with an LDIF import.

Add the of ou=xxx.o=xxxxx context as a value to the attribute.

This allowed the additional user accounts to log into iFolder.
