Novell Access Manager 3.1 Access Administration
Novell Access Manager 3.2 Access Administration
Novell Access Manager 4.0 Access Administration


When any modification to the configuration is made the admin console only allows a cluster configuration update. All servers within the cluster do not have the option to update individually.


Using an ldap browser, access edir on the AC and go to:

"2c4db57eb61c35af" is specific to setup so it will always be different on each AC.

Under this access current level
access attribute "romaApplianceGroupSAXMLDoc"
In that xml, "UpdateAllReq="false""  should be there, if the value is set to true, change it to false.
e.g. value:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><romaApplianceGroup xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://vcdnschema/xmlschemas/romaApplianceGroup.xsd" romaLastModified="" romaLastModifiedBy="" romaGroupName="lag-cluster" romaDescription="" romaXMLDocumentVersion="1.0.1" romaCluster="true" romaPrimary="ag-2B9E5D0B8CB4BBFC" UpdateAllReq="false" romaGroupType="ag" romaHomogeneous="true">  <exGatewayURL /></romaApplianceGroup>

After making the change, restart Tomcat on the AC:
For 3.1.x: rcnovell-tomcat5 restart
For 3.2 and 4.0: rcnovell-ac restart
