  • Users cannot authenticate using the configured netidentity contract.
  • The embedded service provider on the Linux Access Gateway returns the error: "300101008 No assertion returned in response"
  • All standard authentication contracts are working without any further problem


In this particular case there was no valid netidentity class stored on the NIDP server at: "/opt/novell/nids/lib/webapp/WEB-INF/lib" due to the NIDP re-install therefore the NIDP server was not able to provide a valid assertion which coudl be consumed be the LAG (NESP)
