Novell Identity Manager 3.6.1


SuSe Linux Enterprise 10 SP3 installed in a virtual enviroment.  User Application appliance installed on a SuSe Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP3.  After configuring the User Application server and testing it in a lab environment, the desire is now to use move the image from the LAB virtual environment to the Production virutal environment, requiring the server name and networking configuration on the server be changed.


This solution is based upon the default install of the User Application on a SuSe Linux Enterprise server.

After changing the IP address and the hostname on the User Application server, one file specific to the UserApplication must be modified.

File IDM-ds.xml, in a default install of the UA is located in /opt/novell/idm/jboss/server/IDM/deploy

The example below shows the line that needs to modified to reflect the new IP address that has been assigned to the server:

where the IP of, which is the original IP address that was defined, needs to be changed to the new IP address assigned to the server.
