Remote Loader for GW2012 on SLES10 - Configuration problems


Hello,

So I have a SLES10 with GW2012 on it and I'm attempting to integrate it
with my IDM 4.0.2. I'm planning to run a remote loader on the GW2012
server and the driver on that server aswell. I have installed the remote
loader and the driver using the IDM 4.0.2 media and also installed the
Novell Client for SLES10. So far so good. Now, according to this guide:


http://tinyurl.com/cru8fjg

I need to configure the remote loader manually, with a config file. I've
created one that looks like this:

-commandport 8000
-connection "port=8090"
-tracefile /root/Desktop/gwremoteloader.txt
-module "?"
-trace 3

In the guide it says the following:

1. Using the Identity Manager media, install the Remote Loader on the
target machine.
2. Copy the .so file or the .jar file containing the Identity Manager
application shim onto the target machine.
3. Place .jar files in the dirxml/classes directory under the lib
directory (e.g.,$DXML_PATH/dirxml/classes).

Now I have 3 problems:

1. There are tons of .so files on the 4.0.2 media. None are named in a
way that it is obvious that it is the one. It also says I that I can use
the .jar file. Same problem. Tons of .jar files and I have no idea what
class to look for in it.
2. The guide tells me to place the .so or .jar file in the
"dirxml/classes directory under the lib directory". There are two of
those: /usr/lib/dirxml/classes &
/opt/novell/eDirectory/lib/dirxml/classes
3. Just for fun, I copied one of the random .so files from the media,
and used the -module parameter. I got this error: Unrecognize command
line option '-module'

Any idea how to solve this?

Jacob.

You shouldn't be using -module for a Java-based shim; you should be using
-class instead, using com.novell.gw.dirxml.driver.gw.GWdriverShim as the
class.

Be sure that the JARs are all in place, but you shouldn't need to do this
manually. The Novell Client will not be used; that is only necessary if
you have the shim and the Remote Loader on windows, which hopefully you
are not doing since you have GW on SLES (a much better setup, btw).

Good luck.

Re: Remote Loader for GW2012 on SLES10 - Configuration problems


Thanks alot, that cleared up a couple of things! I have the remote
loader installed on the SLES10 where GW2012 resides. I'm not really sure
what you mean when you say I shouldn't need to create it manually. It
says so in the 4.0.2 remote loader guide and there is no config file
anywhere, so I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to make it myself. I'll try
out what you suggested. Thanks!

Jacob.

The conf file you should create yourself, but copying JARs around and
stuff shouldn't be necessary as long as you used the product installer to
install the 32-bit RL and the GW shim since those are all going to be in
the right spot. Once done put your RL conf file (the one you posted last
time) in (as I recall) /etc/opt/novell/dirxml/rdxml and then the system
service for the RL (/etc/init.d/rdxml) will automatically run any RL confs
found in that directory, which means they'll auto-start on a reboot too.

Good luck.
