When modifying the properties of a LUM-enabled user using the "Modify User" task, under the "Users" role, in iManager, the "Linux Profile" tab is missing. Modifying the same user from the "Modify Object" task, under "the Directory Administration role, shows the "Linux Profile" tab correctly.


This issue is due to a known error in the default Role Based Services (RBS) configuration. To resolve this problem, disable RBS, or perform the following steps:

  1. Edit /var/opt/novell/iManager/nps/portal/modules/LinuxUserManagement/plugins/PosixAccount.xml file.
  2. Locate the <display-name-key>LinuxUserManagementUnixProfilePage</display-name-key> tag, and add the following entry:
  3. Launch iManager, and select the "Configure" icon located along the top of the window.
  4. Select the "Role Based Services" role.
  5. Select the "RBS Configuration" task.
  6. In the right pane, select the name of the iManager 2.x default collection.
  7. Select the "Property Book" tab.
  8. Check the "Modify User" property book, then select the Actions | Page List menu item.
  9. In the "Available Pages" listbox, find "LinuxUserManagement.LinuxUserManagementPosixAccount" item. Once highlighted, press the right arrow to move the item into the "Assigned Pages" listbox.
  10. Press the "Ok" button to save the changes.
After following the above steps, the "Linux Profile" tab should be visible when using the "Modify User" task to edit LUM-enabled users.
