Environment

Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 1
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 2

Situation

When trying to login to Novell Remote Manager (NRM), eDirectory based users get denied access with incorrect user id or password.  However, trying to login as "root" is successful -- "root" is in the local /etc/passwd and eDirectory users are not.

Resolution

Typically this will be an issue with NAM and TID 3401691 - namcd cannot connect to LDAP server has a very good set of trouble shooting steps.
