Novell Open Workgroup Suite SBE 2.5


When opening the Web-Management-UI on Novell Open Workgroup Suite SBE ("simba"), the update-applet keeps showing the spinning wheel and doesn't refresh.


While downloading new patch information and updating the RSS feed, these files are created:


If the spinning wheel issue occurs, it is likely that there are leftovers from a previous instance. Please remove these files:

rm /var/lib/simba/sbs/conf/checking.txt
rm /var/lib/simba/sbs/conf/checking_rss.txt

Then, restart the simba daemon:

/etc/init.d/simba restart

and re-login to the web-frontend.
