Novell Access Manager 3.1 Linux Access Gateway


An Access Manager environment exists with multiple versions of the Linux Access Gateway (LAG) in testing, staging a production. When a coredump is being analysed, it is often difficult to determine what version of the LAG the crash occured on, and on what OS platform. The following commands allow you determine this:

1. To verify the OS version from core dump (whether the LAG OS is SLES9 or SLES11)

      strings <core.filename> | grep GCC


     SLES9:        GCC: (GNU) 3.3.3

     SLES11:      GCC: (SUSE Linux) 4.3.2

2. To get the LAG build version


      strings <core.filename> | grep  Via

  In the Via Header - you can see the LAG version.   


   Via: 1.1 (Access Gateway 3.1.2-328-AE9993EC3E3B3870)
