Does NetIQ Designer require the Novell Client to Import Proj


I have a conflict on the VDI system I'm using so I'm not able to install
the Novell client. Is that required to import a project from the
Identity Vault and communicate with the eDir?

  • No, but it does require that you install NICI.

    The Designer install, though, should do the NICI part for you. If you do
    not do this, though, then comms with eDir will not work since NICI
    provides the security foundation for that, among other things.

    No, the Novell client for Windows is not required by Designer.

    !!!Thanks!!!
    This was the apparent issue. After I manually installed NICI, I was able
    to connect to the eDir tree normally.

    It appears that the path I was installing from was too long and NICI
    failed to install so I was unable to connect. I never received this
    error message, but from the readme for Designer 4.02:

    http://tinyurl.com/qghshfj

    "3.6 NICI Fails to Install on Windows during Designer Installation

    If you get the following error message during the installation of
    Designer, one of the reasons could be that the path of the Designer
    executable is too long. In spite of the error message, Designer
    installation completes successfully, but NICI fails to install."

    --and this is a similar issue if NICI isn't installed, as in my
    situation:


    "3.4 Establishing Communication with eDirectory within Designer 4.0.2
    Causes an Error on Windows 7

    This issue occurs because a previous version of NICI might not have
    uninstalled properly and might have some residual files left on the file
    system.

    To work around the issue, remove all the NICI files from the system and
    reinstall Designer and the Novell Client."
