Novell Open Workgroup Suite Small Business Edition (NOWS SBE) 2


Looking at the Simba Web Interface, the updates pane shows continuously busy, that the server is checking for updates, and never completes. Restarting the server has no affect on this.


Check for the existance of the file "/var/lib/simba/sbs/conf/updating.txt" and remove this if the file is present.
