Situation

Context list is empty when browsing for eDirectory context in NURM

Resolution

In order to browse for the eDirectory context in NURM, the edir_root_ca cert must exist in the /etc/alternatives/jre/lib/security/cacerts certificate store and contain a valid eDir CA cert. Follow this process to create the needed CA cert:
 
Verify CA Certificate
  1. Run this command to make sure the CA has not expired:
    • openssl x509 -in /etc/opt/novell/certs/SSCert.der -inform der -noout -text |grep "Not After"

  2. If the CA has expired, you will need to recreate the CA in iManager and export it to the server using this document: https://www.novell.com/communities/coolsolutions/cool_tools/certificate-recreation-script-oes1-and-oes2/

Remove any existing edir_root_ca

Run these commands to remove any existing edir_root_ca certs from the stores:
 
OES2018:
  • ST="-keystore /etc/alternatives/jre/lib/security/cacerts -storepass changeit"; keytool $ST -list |grep edir |cut -d\, -f1 |while read EC; do echo $EC; keytool $ST -delete -alias $EC; done
  • ST="-keystore /var/opt/novell/tomcat/conf/cacerts -storepass changeit"; keytool $ST -list |grep edir |cut -d\, -f1 |while read EC; do echo $EC; keytool $ST -delete -alias $EC; done
OES2015:
  • ST="-keystore /etc/alternatives/jre/lib/security/cacerts -storepass changeit"; keytool $ST -list |grep edir |cut -d\, -f1 |while read EC; do echo $EC; keytool $ST -delete -alias $EC; done
  • ST="-keystore /var/opt/novell/tomcat6/conf/cacerts -storepass changeit"; keytool $ST -list |grep edir |cut -d\, -f1 |while read EC; do echo $EC; keytool $ST -delete -alias $EC; done
 
Create edir_root_ca

Run this command to add the edir_root_ca cert to the stores:
  • /opt/novell/eDirectory/sbin/keystore_setup.sh
 
Restart Tomcat
 
OES2015:  rcnovell-tomcat6 restart
OES2018:  rcnovell-tomcat restart
