Environment

Novell Access Manager 3.1 Linux Novell Identity Server
Novell Access Manager 3.1 Access Administration

Situation

Copied over the Novell Identity Server ZIP file to a directory on SLES 10 server. Ran the install.sh file to start the Admin Console installation but received the following error after clicking the menu option to install the Admin Console.

"It appears that the installer is missing critical files. Please verify that the installation directory is complete and re-run the installer. Terminating Installation."

Resolution

Remove any space characters from the install directory. The Identity Server ZIP file has been uncompressed in a /tmp/Access Manager/ subdirectory (space between Access and Manager). Running the Admin Console install option caused the nds-install to fail with the following error
