Installation of the Novell Enhanced Smart Card Method (NESCM) from iManager 2.7.2 running on a NetWare server results in a Java Page fault exception.


Current workaround:

Install the NESCM Method with nmasinst.nlm  from the server console.


Run Novell iManager 2.7.2  from a Linux server and authenticate to the NetWare server.  This will allow you install the method successful.
