Just use iManager, and make sure the user is LUM enabled...

Re: How recreate novlwww user

I tried it.
But I need reinstall OES services also.
Manually recreating this user (and enable for LUM) does not help me.
Reinstallation iManager cannot be successfull - probably some folders on
the Linux box need to have owner user novlwww.
But what exactly folders?

Not sure, but check to make sure that the user can be seen by the Linux
system:
getent passwd

If that's ok then at least the user appears. Do you have any idea what UID
the old www user had?

Re: How recreate novlwww user

I see this user in passwd.
I don't know exactly old UID and GID for this user.
In documentation written what this user must have UID 100.
I tried it, but result the same - iManager reinstallation process can't
set some rights for unknown for me folders.
Again question - how to reinstall full OES services (exception - nds
service - it working fine).
I tried delete NSS, LUM and web services (without reinstallation apache
and TOMCAT), delete old users: novlwww, wwwrun,adminmyrver, group www,
Linux workstation.
And install again. But new user novlwww does not appear.
Manually creating does not resolve my problem.
One exception - after upgrade to SP2 I saw user novlwww in passwd, but
this user not transferred to eDirectory after reinstallation NSS and LUM.
Now I need correct way for full reinstallation LUM and web services.
May be I need reinstall apache and tomcat also?
Or manually assign rights to some folders for system users
(novlwww,wwwrun,www)... But who know what exactly folders?
