Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2)
Novell QuickFinder Server
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 8


Indexing documents located on an NSS volume of a remote NetWare 6.5 SP8 server, and display search results based on the rights of the users performing the search.

No search results are displayed, no matter what rights the user has.

/var/opt/novell/tomcat5/logs/catalina.out reports that search hits are present but the user is unauthorized.

Right-based searches made on NSS volumes local to the QuickFinder server does not show this issue.

The indexed server where the documents are located does not hold a local replica of the partition where the user making the search resides.


Fixed in Open Enterprise Server 2 Support Pack 2.

Add on the indexed server a R/W replica of the partition where the users making the searches are located, or either move the documents to a server holding it. After this operation a restart of Tomcat 5 may be needed on the QuickFinder server.
