iManager 2.7.7 issues with IDM plugins after IDM upgrade


Hi all,

I'm doing an IDM upgrade from 4.0.1 to 4.0.2 and have run into an issue
where even after upgrading iManager to 2.7.7 I'm unable to manage the
IDM drivers etc. I'm getting the error "This page requires that
Identity Manager Version: 3.0.1 or newer be installed on all associated
servers."

This support article
(http://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7008807) seems to relate to
the issue I'm having (albeit with a different IDM version). As per that
article I've attempted to install the latest IDM plugins I'm able to
find from the Novell download site (version 4.0.1) however keep running
into the same issue. Are there any later plugins available for version
4.0.2? The servers I'm upgrading dont have internet access so am
relying on the Novell downloads site to get updates.

Cheers,

Andrew.

The updated IDM iManager plugins are bundled with the 4.0.2
Metadirectory installer.

..\products\IDM\windows\setup\imanplugins\27\IDMPlugins_IMAN_2_7_IDM_4_0_
2_0.npm

(path quoted from windows ISO, adjust appropriately for linux)

Try installing this manually.

Also, there are post 4.0.2 updates available in the online plugin
update section of iManager

Being offline, that makes things tricky. In the IDM 3.6.x day, Novell
would generally publish the iManager plugins for offline download also.
I'll ask about this and reply when I get an answer.

OK, I've taken a quick look at this.

in iManager config, there is a reference to the standard update check URL
http://www.novell.com/products/consoles/imanager/iman_mod_desc.xml

If you open that URL in a regular browser and then search for IDM, you find one entry:
http://cdn2.novell.com/cached/designer/imanager_plugins/IDMPlugins_IMAN_2_7_IDM_4_0_2_1.npm

Just download that and install it locally, then you should be up to date. Hope that helps.

Also, I'd recommend a fresh install of iManager 2.7.7 - the update process works but carries with it quite a lot of cruft.

In particular a fresh install gives the latest version of Tomcat (performance and security improvements).

Uninstall old iManager.
Install new iManager from latest media/download (I generally choose not to install any of the plugins during the base install)
Patch with the latest service pack (if it wasn't already applied from the main install).
Restart Tomcat.
Apply eDir plugins (matching eDir version).
Restart Tomcat
Apply IDM plugins (the one I mentioned above)
Restart Tomcat.
Install any other plugins you may need.
NOTE: The password management plugins are included with the IDM ones so you can ignore those.

Re: iManager 2.7.7 issues with IDM plugins after IDM upgrade


Thanks Alex much appreciated 🙂 Yes I've done a fresh iManager 2.7.7
install as one of my troubleshooting steps - as things weren't working
in 2.7.5 either so saw it as an opportunity to put the latest version
on.

As an FYI for others the NPM location on the Linux ISO is
.../products/IDM/linux/setup/packages/imanplugins/27/IDMPlugins_IMAN_2_7_IDM_4_0_2_0.npm.
Just incredibly frustrating they have a downloads site and don't list
the plugin updates on there (latest version is 4.0.1) - particularly
given a lot of environments are restricted and don't have internet
access.
