How to remove NetWare Licenses

Hi,

a OES tree migrated from NetWare to OES2 Linux.
In eDirectory the NetWare License objects already exists.

I tried to remove this Licenses with NwAdmin32, ConsoleOne and iManger.
Every tool generates a other error message. iManger reports a NetWare
NLS is needed to remove this licenses.

Any ideas how to remove the NetWare licenses in an OES2 Linux only tree?

Re: How to remove NetWare Licenses

The fact the tree is on OES2 Linux is nothing to do with your problem, you'd have the same issue if it was all still on NetWare.

There are IRFs on licenses. Here's a free tool to help you http://www.dreamlan.com/freeware/rmLicIRF.zip

Hi,

thank you for the link, unfortunately this is an NLM. I am unable to
execute an NLM on Linux - or I do not knew how to execute an NLM on Linux.

Re: How to remove NetWare Licenses

Oh, of course, silly me. Well there's not much that can be done then short of getting Novell to dial in and delete them manually, or temporarily putting a NW server back in the tree to enable use of rmLicIRF. Or you could just ignore them, they will do no harm.

No. You *need* a *running* NLS somewhere in your tree to remove
licenses, this has nothing to do with the IRF. If you have removed the
last NW server but still have license objects in your tree, there is no
whatsoever way to get rid of them again without calling Novell (or
reinstalling a NW server).

Re: How to remove NetWare Licenses

Hi,

today Novell ESC cleared the IRF for this license objects, so I was able
to delete the licenses.

The engineer used the tool ndsdump to modify the ACL value.
Ndsdump appears to be an internal tool - I did not find any documentation.

Any idea where to get a current documentation for ndsdump?

Re: How to remove NetWare Licenses

You cannot. It is a purely internal tool for use by selected trained Novell engineers only.
