Environment

Novell Access Manager 3.1.2 InterimRelease 2 (3.1.2-328)
Novell Access Manager 3.1.2 InterimRelease 3 (3.1.2-345)
Linux Access Gateway

Situation

Attempting to re-import LAG into the Administration Console using the /chroot/lag/opt/novell/bin/lagconfigure.sh script after manually modifying IP settings of the Network Adapter in YaSTthe import seems to complete successfully, but the LAG has not been imported, and when you look at ifconfig the IP settings for the NetWork Adapter have returned to their original install settings.

The lag_import.log has the following:

JCC_REMOTE_PORT 8444

The JCC Configuration failed. Please view the problem within the logfile found
at /tmp/novell_access_manager/lag_import.log

Resolution

  On the LAG:
1. Backup /var/novell/cfgdb/.backup/config.xml
2. Change the IP address in the config.xml from the old address to the new desired address (also verify the subnet mask is correct)
3. Run the lagconfigure.sh script.

Additional Information

The lagconfigure.sh script copies a stored config.xml (in the /var/novell/cfgdb/.backup/ directory) that is created when you first install the LAG. This config.xml contains the original IP address you entered, and copies the config.xml over to .current during the import, and the settings within it become the IP settings:
