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


Applied the May maintenance release for OES2 SP3.
Attempt to use "" script in a cron job to set a new password failed
The proxy_users.conf is zero bytes.


The /etc/opt/novell/proxymgmt/proxy_user.conf was empty.
Put in the correct proxy FDN.  (Fully Distinguished Name of the user acting as proxy.  In my case it is the OESCommonProxy user.  For example: "cn=OESCommonProxy_myserver,o=suse"
If you do not know what user this should be, you can find out the user name that was used for Novell Sluster Services with the following commands which are run as root:

  export SECRET_ID=NovellClusterServices.Novell
  /opt/novell/ncs/bin/ncs-casautil -d

This has been fixed in future releases.
