The Quest for NAAS

Disclaimer:
Yes, I know that NAAS is EOL and that nAudit is the future, but NAAS is
free.
If Novell seriously used NAAS as their auditing mechanism prior to coming up
with nAudit, then it should still work, however complex it may be.

Now having said that, I'm trying to get a working NAAS system, but am having
zero luck.

I created a brand new NW6SP5 server in its own tree. It has an entry in my
DNS server.
I'm using the 4.91SP1 client on an XPSP2 workstation.

I've tried this without further patching the server after the initial
install, and I've tried it after installing the following:
eDir 8.7.3.7
NICI 2.6.8
NMAS 2.3.9
Secupd9
tcp 610m
JVM 1.4.2sp4
NSS5C

There are only two users in this system, Admin and a second, admin-level
user.
When I created the server, I left NAAS selected.

When I run mgrstart, the Pervasive NLM loads without complaint.

When I run the Pervasive workstation install from the PVRSW directory of the
server, I always get the following message:

"The server you chose appears to have the SPX and TCP/IP protocol(s) but the
network address returned does not look like a valid address.
Also verify that Pervasive.SQL is started on the server."

I've read through TID10070416 and all the TIDs it points to.

TID10070415 says "Add a replica" - It's the only server in the tree, so it
already has the Master replica.

I've added the NW server to the workstation's HOST file.

I've run out of ideas.
Any words of wisdom ?

Re: The Quest for NAAS

This might no be much help for your issue, but:

Novell's Nsure Auditing comes in two flavors. The Nsure Audit Starter
Pack and the Full Version. The Nsure Audit Starter Pack entitles you to
some but not all of the capabilities provided by the complete Nsure
Audit solution. Furthermore, the Nsure Audit Starter Pack includes
evaluation versions of all of the features in Nsure Audit.

Among other capabilities, Nsure Audit Starter Pack enables you to
centrally log events from NetWare 6.5 and eDirectory 8.7. Don't assume
that Nsure Audit Starter Pack is lacking on the feature front. It offers
far more than the auditing features Novell previously provided in Novell
Advanced Auditing Services (NAAS).

Refer to the following link for a comparison between the Nsure Audit,
Nsure Audit Starter Pack, and Novell Advanced Auditing Services (NAAS).

http://www.novell.com/connectionmagazine/2003/08/tech_talk_1.html#compare_features

The Nsure Audit Starter Pack is one of the available items to install
from the Novell 6.5 Products CD and the full Nsure Audit product
documentation is what you use for the Starter Pack flavor...

Re: The Quest for NAAS

Thanks for your response, Don
I may actually go that route
I was trying to avoid all the stuff you have to have in place before you can
use nAudit (MySQL, Bouncy Castle cryptographic package, iManager 2.0).
In addition, I absolutely loathe iManager.
Ahh well.....
