Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 3


Miggui is able to authenticate to the server where it is being run.

Authentication to other OES2SP3 servers results in error:  Authentication to the server failed.  SSL error during LDAP authentication.  Verify the eDirectory credentials.  Refer to the migration.log for more details. 

Authentication to SSL port on the server using an LDAP browser works fine as the same user which is being used to authenticate in miggui.
