Cant access REMOTE MANAGER

Got out first SLES server in a Netware tree, all running well. Server added into edirectory (with my account name, which is full admin), relevant partitiions added, and I can access remote manager om http://<server>:8008.

However NOONE else can, whether using their user name or username.context.

The users can access every other server in the tree, and have full admin rights to the tree also.

PLease can someone advise, error message is a simple 'username or password invalid'

Users need to be LUM enabled to be able to access NRM. By default, only
the install user is.

I usually use root acess to get at the remote manager.

Also make sure you have ports open in firewall as required.

8008, 8009, 5900 5901 ???

For a quick test on each box to id <user>. If you get no such user you need to LUM enable that user.

Re: Cant access REMOTE MANAGER

I also cannot get logged into Remote Manager. Get user or password incorrect, even trying to use Admin user which is the user I installed OES. I have the users/group LUM enabled using iManager but still cannot login to Remote Manager using ANY e-dir user, only can login using root. I went back through the LUM documentation and the one part that confuses me (don't know if this is part of the problem) is the part that says the following:
2. From the desktop environment, launch YaST.

3. Click Security and Users > Linux User Management.

4. Specify whether eDirectory is running on the computer itself (Local System) or on another computer on the network (Remote System).


I do not have a "Linux User Management" Icon in YAST, only "User Management" so I have no way to specify whether eDir is running on the computer. I do have a read/write replica of the tree on the linux server. Is this part of the problem? If so, why don't I see the "Linux User Management" Icon in YAST?

How can I get logged into Remote Manager using e-dir accounts??
