Novell iManager 2.6
Novell iManager 2.5 Maintenance Update 3


Can't modify Object Class attribute in iManager 2.6
Unable to modify Object Class attribute in iManager 2.6 using the Other Tab
Error -603 on trace screen


This has been fixed in iManager 2.6 Maintenance Update 1 which is now available through the automatic plug-in downloader from within iManager 2.6 and it is also available at under filename iman26mu1.tgz.

Additional Information

A bug was introduced in the iManager 2.6 shipping version and also in the iManager 2.5 mu3 patch.  The problem presents itself when using the Modify Object task under Directory Administration, then accessing the "Other" tab to see the attributes that don't have predefined edit screens, select Object Class attribute and click the edit button.  In previous versions of iManager, this action listed the object class values on the selected object and allowed an Auxiliary class to be added or removed.  In the specified versions above, an empty edit box is displayed, and no modification is possible.

This same behavior can occur for other attributes also.  The issue is with LDAP automapping.  Any attribute with an NDS name that is not a legal LDAP name (spaces and colons are illegal, for example) may fail when attempting to access or edit them from the Other tab.
