OES2 did not support the DHX2 Authentication method for AFP until the release of the "November 2011Scheduled Maintenance Release for OES2 SP3"  which included novell-afptcpd-1.2.0-0.35.i586.rpm and novell-afptcpd-1.2.0-0.35.x86_64.rpm.

Support was also release with OES11.

You have applied the above mentioned OES2 SP3 updates but you do not see the Deffie-Hellman 2 option when configuring your AFP server.


Follow the steps below to get the AFP plug-in updated with these changes:

logout of iManager

At the console of the server that is running AFP, as admin, do the following:
rm -rf  /var/opt/novell/tomcat5/work/Catalina/localhost/nps/org/apache/jsp/portal/modules/afp
This step will remove the "afp" folder.

rcnovell-tomcat5  restart
This step will cause the updated plug-in changes to take effect

re-login to iManager
Verify the Deffie-Hellman 2 Option is available when using the AFP plug-in.
