Environment

Novell Audit 2.0.2
64 Bit Operating Systems

Situation

When installing the Novell Audit (SLS) server on 64-bit machine, it is installed as a 32-bit application and requires a 32 bit eDirectory and ntls library set.  If these libraries aren't available, installation fails with the error message:

Failed to load any MDB driver - Error: Could not load driver
/usr/lib/mdb/mdbfile.so, error 2 - /usr/lib/mdb/mdbfile.so: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory


This error appears because auditext needs to load the MDB drivers and these drivers refer to 32-bit eDirectory libraries and 32-bit NTLS libraries.

Resolution

64 bit platforms are fully supported using Sentinel or Sentinel Log manager. As Novell Audit is end of life, customers are encouraged to use Novell Sentinel.

The additional information section is preserved for reference.

Additional Information

The following chart shows which components of Novell Audit can be installed depending upon the machine architecture and eDirectory install.
