iManager Administration Identity Manager disabled


Hello,

It's the first time i installe eDir and Imanager. When i login in
Imanager i don't have the view Administration Identity Manager on my
head form.

My eDir instance : ndsconfig new -t robert-tree -n o=worldline -a
cn=admin.o=worldline -w admin -S otvmi252s -d
/var/opt/novell/eDirectory/data/dib/ -b 1025 -l 1027 -o 1028 -O 1029
--config-file /etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/nds.conf

I m not sure that the account admin is really administrator of the
tree.

Do you have an idear ?

Best reagards

Welcome; we can probably get over this little confusing point quickly.

I presume this is a non-root instance, if not a non-roto install. You
posted in the 'unix' forum, so is this really 'unix' (vs. Linux), probably
meaning Solaris? I ask since that would imply you're on eDirectory 8.8
SP7 or earlier, which is kind of old (8.8 SP8 has been out for a couple of
years now). If you're doing this on Linux, you may want to post in that
forum (in the future) as there are likely many more people following there
than here.

If you are referring to 'cn=admin.o=worldline' then that should be the
admin of the tree created by the command above, yes. If you believe it is
not for a specific reason, please let us know why.

iManager comes with some very basic plugins by default, but that does not
even include all of the eDirectory plugins, much less the IDM ones. The
reasoning is probably for speed, maintainability, etc., but in the end if
you want IDM plugins then you need to install the IDM plugins into
iManager, which is really easy to do. Also, note that you cannot use the
IDM plugins fully unless you have IDM installed in the current tree as
schema will be extended by the IDM install for IDM's purposes. Since I do
not see a note about that installation, be sure you complete that (per its
documentation) first. If you install IDM on the same box that hosts
iManager there is an optionas part of that installation to install the IDM
plugins; you can do this, but you may find newer plugins available via
iManager's online repository. Be sure to only upgrade, not downgrade,
plugins inadvertently.

To add plugins to iManager, go to 'Configure' (man behind the desk icon at
the top of the page), then 'Configure' (link), 'Plugins', 'Available
Plugins', and then choose any plugins you want to insatll. My personal
recommendation is to install one at a time, and restart Tomcat between
each plugin installation (probably not required, but it always works for
me, so I do not bother deviating from my proven norms anymore). I
typically install iManager, be sure it (the framework) is patched to the
latest, and then install eDirectory plugins, followed by NMAS plugins
(because I use them for auditing purposes), followed by IDM plugins.
After that you should see everything you expect for IDM administration.
Keep in mind that IDM Designer is the primary and preferred administration
tool for IDM these days, as it has a lot of features that iManager does not.
