NetIQ Identity Manager 4.5 AE install


When upgrading from IDM 4.0.2 Advanced Edition to IDM 4.5 Advanced Edition, you receive the following error after logging in as admin during command line, or gui install.

/tmp/install.dir.32660/Linux/resource/jre/bin/java: symbol lookup error: /opt/novell/eDirectory/lib//libspmclnt.so: undefined symbol: DDCDuplicateContext


Verify the following prior to attempting to install IDM 4.5 AE.

01) Make sure the /tmp mount location has at least 2 GB of free disk space. I have seen product and patch installs fail when that location has less than 2 GB free.

02) in the console before starting the instalation set both path and ld_library_path so that they read form /tmp/lib first:

export PATH=/tmp/lib:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/tmp/lib
