PsmStatus print manager status page and login

Greetings, running OES2SP1 on SLES10SP2, am trying to login to the
https://servername/PsmStatus page to see the status of my iPrint printers,
but the login seems odd. I can't put context info (it just keeps reasking
the user/pswd), but if I just put a eDir username and their pswd it works
fine.

Does this mean this login is crawling the eDir tree (from the print manager
context up only?) to find a matching user?

If so, what happens if there are 2 users with the same name at different
contexts?

Why doesn't this page use a standard FQDN login? Was it for user
simplicity?

Cheers
James

Alas, what you see is one of the main "design" problems of OES2. OES2 is
not a nicely integrated product but rather a collection of different
programs that all use different ways of authenticating and administration.
In the case of iPrint, the web authentication is configured in the file:

/etc/opt/novell/iprint/http/conf/iprint_ssl.conf

It is configured as a search starting at a particular context defined in
that configuration file.

OK, guess I'll live with it. I was thinking for a bit that it was like the
GroupWise POA's where you define an http login user and pswd in C1 so was
poking around in iManager for this, guess like you say they're really not
being consistent!
