Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 (OES 11) Linux Support Pack 2
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2015 (OES 2015) Linux
NetIQ Identity Manager 4.5
NetIQ Identity Manager Plug-ins for IDM


With iManager installed on an OES11 sp2 server, or on an OES 2015 server, after upgrading the NetIQ Identity Manager Plug-ins for IDM to the version (Local Version 10.7.20160113), trying to bring up the Identity manager Administration widget returns a system error.

java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: JVMCFRE003 bad major version; class=com/novell/nds/dirxml/engine/gcv/GCVException, offset=6 (unable to load class com.novell.nds.dirxml.engine.gcv.GCVException)\n at ..........


At present, there are three options available:

1. Downgrade the IDM Administration plug-in to a last known good version.
2. Utilize the iManager Remote until the OES channel has an updated version of java.
3. Set up a (non-OES) iManager server


OES11SP2 and OES2015 are based on SLES11sp3; Both were bundled with java 1.6.
