iFolder3 Installation fails

I have a new OES Linux Server, clean install. Created NSS Volume and ifolder storage /var/nss/ifolderdata

Read the manual searched the TIDS, followed the install instructions. Yast installation of iFolder seems OK, but comes up with an error message -- "failed to Install iFolder check /var/log etc

The log is a mass of (to me) gobbledygook (I'm not a Linux expert - just know my way around the essentials) and the two things I see which seem to mean something are

lock violation on path /var/nss/ifolderdata and
522 error failed to configure iFolder

What am I doing wrong? Obviously missing something important

Re: iFolder3 Installation fails

Just from hanging out here, I can pretty safely say that installing iFolder
to an NSS volume is not recommended (invites complications as you've seen,
and provides no benefit at all). So, if you can try again on a non-NSS
volume, that would be great. If not, hopefully someone else will have
other suggestions for you.

Re: iFolder3 Installation fails

I am not an expert on iFolder3, but have got it to work.

Is this a OES-Linux server?
Is Mono installed?
Have you completed the mono chmods?
Have you worked on the iFolder3 configs in iManager on that server?

Re: iFolder3 Installation fails

Yes, it's an OES-Linux box
Not sure, and it's 80Kms from where I am now!
Mono? How, where and why?
No, because I couldn't get past the install.

If you tell me what needs to be done, I'm going out there either tomorrow
or the next day, I can do the necessary and report back, problem is, it's
at a customer site doubles as a Samba server so I need to go with a list
of things to try, then i try them and if it doesn't work, we'll have to
look again. It isn't life-threatening!

Thanks for offering to help

Re: iFolder3 Installation fails

OK, here is a list of pre-reqs for the install:
-OES Linux (there are additional items to do if you choose NSS to store
the ifolder data, I would recommend not using NSS at least on the first
one).
-Novell eDirectory 8.7.3 (can be configured on a different OES server)
-Novell iManager 2.5 (can be configured on a different OES server)
-Novell iFolder 3.x (I recommend a post-install)
-Web Access server (if desired)
-Mono (The Mono package is required for iFolder 3.x enterprise server
and for Web Access server.)
-Apache 2 Web Server (The apache2-worker package is required for
iFolder 3.x enterprise server and for Web access server.)

For the mono chmod:

Change the Mono permissions in the /usr/lib directory. At the prompt,
enter chmod 755 -R mono

Change the Mono permissions in the /etc directory. At the prompt, enter
chmod 755 -R mono

And once that is done and apache restarted go into iManager and set the
contexts to look for users. Then add the users you want.

Re: iFolder3 Installation fails

OES Linux - Yes
NSS for data - Yes
Novell eDirectory 8.7.3 - Yes
Novell iManager 2.5 - Yes
Novell iFolder 3.x - Yes
Server was setup and working before I tried to install iFolder3
Didn't try the web access for 2 reasons (a) iFolder install failed and (b)
they might want to install GroupWise 7.01 and GW WebAccess on it and not
sure if both are compatible
Apache2 - Yes
Tomcat - Yes
VNC - Yes (but have to fix firewall)
Mono - NO - where is it? How do I install what are the gotchas (22 years
of Novell products has taught me that all Novell products have a gotcha!)

Sounds like all I have to do is install Mono and do the Rights.

Re: iFolder3 Installation fails

I would move the iFolder storage to a non-NSS partition for your first
few installs.

in you fire up Yast and go to teh software install, just enter mono in
the search.

Might be.
