NetIQ Access Manager 3.2
Novell Access Manager 3.1


  • Novell Access Manager Console 3.2SP1

  • The default NIDP "test-signing" certificate has been replaced with an official certificate before a userstore has been configured

  • Adding an eDirectory userstore with the option "Install NMAS SAML method" returns the eDirectory error "-601 FFFFFDA7   NO SUCH ENTRY"


  • export the configured signing certificate and its root chain
  • open iManager with the latest available "NMAS Plug-ins" and "Novell Certificate Server Plug-ins" installed.
  • open Roles and Tasks => NMAS Login Methods
  • select the SAML Assertion authentication method
  • open the affiliate menu
  • review / note the "Trusted Root Container" for each already configured affiliate
  • import previously exported signing certificate and root certificate(s) into the assigned "Roles and Tasks => Novell Certificate Server => Create Trusted Root".
