Environment

Novell eDirectory 8.7.3 for All Platforms
Novell iManager 2

Situation

Unable to configure iManager using configure Role Based Services
Configure iManager - Current logged in user is not authorized to configure iManager.
Available Novell Plug-in Modules - Module Installation Current logged in user is not authorized to configure iManager.
Installed Novell Plug-in Modules - Module Installation Current logged in user is not authorized to configure iManager

Resolution

In the tomcat home directory, (<path>\tomcat4\webapps\nps\WEB-INF), (/var/opt/novell/iManager/nps/WEB-INF for OES), there is a configiman.properties file. This file contains the name of the user or users who are authorized to run several administrative tasks for iManager on that server.

This file is automatically created with the installer Admins name added to the file but there have been rare instances where this was input incorrectly. The correct syntax should include the admin name and tree name ie;

admin.novell.treename=eDirectory

For all users to be able to access the administrative tasks you can input:

AllUsers=true

After applying the correct changes to your file you should not need to restart tomcat on the server. Apache will not need to be restarted.

Additional Information

configiman.properties file is missing or misconfigured
