Environment

Novell Privileged User Manager 2.3.0

Situation

Prior to NPUM 2.3.0-2, when a host attempted to connect to itself locally, it would use the NPUM
registered address. 

Resolution

With NPUM 2.3.0-2 (or greater) if a host has to connect to itself, the agent will attempt to connect to localhost using 127.0.0.1.   This is the default setting.

To change from the default setting, create a connector.xml in:

For SLES specific rpm installs:
/etc/opt/novell/novell/npum/service/local

For all other platforms:
/opt/novell/novell/npum/service/local

With the following information:
Note: In the example below, 127.0.0.2 was used as the desired address.

<Admin>
  <Connector port="29120" ssl_ctx="service" localhost="127.0.0.2"/>
</Admin>
