Novell Identity Manager 4.0.1
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1


IDM console upgrade from IDM 4.0 appears to hang after initially starting on SLES. 

The last line in the /tmp/idmInstall.log shows:

==== GetDIBLocation ========================================
ndsconfig get n4u.nds.dibdir | grep n4u.nds.dibdir


Edit the /etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/.edir/instances.0 file and place a # in front of all instance lines except one.  Run your upgrade for the one instance that did not get the #.  Remove the # from the instances.0 file.

Repeat the above procedure until all instances have been upgraded.
