Network Address attribute not being populated

Environment

Novell eDirectory 8.8 for Linux

Situation

When running eDirectory 8.8.3 or 8.8.4, changing any configuration parameter in iMonitor, the Login Update Enable field was also disabled.  This causes the Network Address, along with other login time attributes such as Login Time, Last Login Time, Intruder Address, etc, to not be populated.   Any applications that depend on the Network Address attribute value being present do not work properly.

In addition to the bug in iMonitor, having the Login Update Enable field disabled by the upgrade from 8.8.4 to 8.8.5 was reported by one customer running eDirectory in a Cluster environment.

Resolution

There was a bug in iMonitor that was fixed in eDirectory 8.8.3 FTF3, 8.8.4 FTF1, and 8.8.5 to resolve the bug in iMonitor.  However, once it has happened, you must manually re-enable the Login Update Enable field to get the Network Address and the other attributes to be populated at login time again.  This is done by the following:
1. Login to iMonitor as an administrative user
2. Select Agent Configuration, then click on Login Settings
3. Check the Login Update Enabled box, and make sure a value is present in the Login Delay.  Default value is 5 seconds.
4. Click on Submit for the change to take effect.
