NICISDI.KEY

Hi,

I have removed a server from our development tree following the
information in TID 10019060. During point (7) of the process it reads
that
some security objects need to be deleted such as the “SSL
CertificateDNS”.
It also mentions that the NICISDI.KEY needs to be deleted which I did
and
now can not access the server from a Macintosh computer. How can I fix

this so I can login from a Macintosh again using the old passwords. If
I
create a new simple password all works well, I have tried using
SDIDIAG.NLM and PKIDIAG.NLM but this did not fix anything.

NICI 2.4
Netware 5.1 SPK 4
NFAP 1.01

Thanks,
Glen.

Re: NICISDI.KEY

Have you reinstalled it in a new tree or an existing tree? It should
have
got a new key if so.

Re: NICISDI.KEY

Hi,

The server I removed will not be reinstalled into another tree. The
instructions read that I should remove the NICISDI.KEY from the server

that is still in use which is the only one in the tree, so I did, and
now
after recreating the NICISDI.KEY the users with simple passwords can
not
login.

Thanks,
Glen.

Re: NICISDI.KEY

Do I understand correctly that you deleted the .KEY file from the
server
that was to remain in the tree, not the server you were removing? That
TID
you reference only tells you to delete it from the server you are
going to
remove - and even then, I can't really see why you'd want to do that.
So you've deleted the tree key from the CA of your tree and your whole

security infrastructure is nuked. I believe your best bet is to follow
TID
10056795 - Scenario #1 - there is an 8-step process here, start with
step 1,
the section starting with "Or".

Re: NICISDI.KEY

Yes, stupid I know, but it’s the development environment so not much
is
lost. I did manage to copy the original NICISDI.KEY back to the server
and
Mac users are now able to authenticate again.
I would like to find out more about what NICI files need to be
restored /
recovered if a server needs rebuilding in the event of a crash.

Thanks for all your help,
Glen.

Re: NICISDI.KEY

If you search the knowledgebase for NICISDI.KEY you should find a
number of
helpful TIDs.
