Novell eDirectory 8.8 Support Pack 3 (64 bit) for Linux
Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Support Pack 1


- No iMonitor Dhost page icons are displayed after logging in to the dhost page
- Restarting eDirectory, logging back into iMonitor or clearing browser cache etc have no effect on the problem.
- Using different browsers has no impact on the issue as well.


The cause for this issue is broken symbolic links for the Dhost Icons directory on the 64 bit eDirectory 88 SP3 installs.

To fix this problem, do the following:

- cd /var/opt/novell/eDirectory/data/nds-http
- rm iconsole
- ln -s /opt/novell/eDirectory/lib64/nds-modules/nds-http/iconsole  iconsole
 -Restart eDirectory and Dhost icons should be visible now.

Additional Information

Note that the above problem has only been reported so far for 88 SP3 64 bit installs.

Other cases have been reported of iMonitor icons disappearing intermittently with eDirectory 88 SP1 and SP2 on Linux and Solaris, but that is a separate issue and is being investigated by NTS currently.
