Changes in imanager are not being read by proxy

Environment

Novell BorderManager 3.9 Support Pack 1
Novell BorderManager 3.9 Support Pack 2

Situation

After submit changes in imanager 2.7, brdsrvs/proxy reloads but the new changes
are not in place, like for example, enabling ftp proxy or add a new group to a ACL control rule.

console.log shows this error:

3-26-2009 11:15:11 am: BRDSRV-3.70-3
Unable to read configuration from NDS (error - -672).

Normally a stopbrd/startbrd will force border to read the settings.

Resolution


This has been reported to engineering but as workaround,
assign to [public] object, supervisor rights to the BRDSRVS:configchange attribute.

Additional Information

the actual eDirectory verb being called here is DSAModifyEntry, which implies
the client is trying to make changes to the BM Server object.

This will most likely fail with a -672 and rightly so because .public only has
Browse rights to the tree by default. It could be authorized to read this
attribute, but definitely not to modify it.

I also see DSAModifyEntry being attempted for the same attribute and succeeding
as identity .GONZALO-NW6.nts.GONZALO-NW6-TREE. (server name)

The random nature of the problem might be because the DSAModifyEntry is only
attempted as public under certain conditions.
