NetIQ eDirectory 9.0.3
NetIQ Identity Manager 4.5
NetIQ Identity Manager 4.6


eDirectory does not start after upgrading eDirectory to 9.0.x when Identity Manager 4.5 or 4.6 is installed.

Starting ndsd gives an error like:

[root@rhel6 log]# /etc/init.d/ndsd start
Executing customized settings before starting the NetIQ eDirectory server...

Based on the Checklist for Upgrading Identity Manager for Identity Manager the package 'novell-DXMLopensslx' must be removed from the system when upgrading to eDirectory 9.0.x when upgrading the Remote Loader.

Remote 'novell-DXMLopensslx':

# rpm -e novell-DXMLopensslx

Start ndsd:

# /etc/init.d/ndsd start


OpenSSL in Identity Manager 4.5 and 4.6 is incompatible with OpenSSL provided by eDirectory 9.0.x.
