6.0 Configuring the Client Login Extension MSI Files

You use the Client Login Extension Configuration utility to configure the extension MSI files. The MSI files are used to install the Client Login Extension on Windows workstations. If you have not already installed the utility, see Section 5.0, Installing the Client Login Extension.

The Client Login Extension MSI files are available in a number of different languages. You must configure the Client Login Extension file for each language, including English, before it can be used.

To configure the MSI files:

  1. Click the Client Login Extension Configuration utility for Novell Identity Manager 3.7.2 shortcut to launch the Client Login Extension Configuration utility.

    or

    Double-click the ClientLoginExtensionConfigurationUtility.exe file to launch the utility.

    The Path to the Installer to Configure option shows the path to the English version of the Client Login Extension installer file that is being configured. Whenever this text box contains a path to a valid MSI file, the utility automatically opens the file, populates the other controls with the information it contains, and enables the Configure Installer button.

    NOTE:In Windows 7 and 8, sometimes the Path to Installer to Configure field does not take you to the CLE installer file location. It displays the following error message:

    Location is not available
    

    To workaround this issue, you must manually browse and select the correct folder.

    In an environment where Internet is not directly accessible and the Client Login Extension needs to access it, you need to connect the Client Login Extension to a proxy server. To connect to the proxy server, select the Enable Proxy check-box and provide the IP address and the port number of the proxy server in the Proxy Server text-box.

  2. (Optional) If you want to select another language, click the Browse button to select the Client Login Extension installer file in a different language.

    By default, the Browse button opens in the Installer subfolder in the installation folder and displays all files that match with the Client Login Extension Installer pattern.

  3. Modify the information in the Welcome text or keep the information as it is presented.

    The information in the text box is displayed on the Welcome screen of the Client Login Extension. The string [ProductName] displays as Client Login Extension 3.7.2.

  4. Specify the URL that the Client Login Extension- restricted browser uses to connect to the User Application Forgotten Password page. You can use either a DNS name or an IP address. An example of a URL using a DNS name that links to the Forgotten Password page is:

    https://hostname:8443/IDM/jsps/pwdmgt/ForgotPassword.jsp

    This URL can also be configured to access the external password WAR. To do this, see Installing and Configuring the User Application WAR in the Identity Manager Roles Based Provisioning Module 4.0.2 User Application: Installation Guide.

    IMPORTANT:You must have a valid URL pointing to the User Application’s Forgotten Password page; otherwise, the client connection might fail and you might not be able to log in through the workstation. For more information, see Section 8.2, Troubleshooting.

  5. If you have workstations that use the Microsoft GINA, specify the text to be displayed on the link to the restricted browser that the Client Login Extension uses.

    The default text is Forgotten Password. The text for the button in the Novell Client is provided by the Novell Client and cannot be changed here.

  6. After all of the information is in place, click Configure Installer to write the new configuration settings to the selected Client Login Extension file.

  7. Click OK to close the confirmation message.

  8. The Client Login Extension Configuration utility remains open, allowing you to configure another Client Login Extension MSI file in a different language. To do so, click the Browse button to the right of the Path to the Installer to Configure option, select another language, and configure another .msi file by following Step 2 through Step 7.

    The localized Client Login Extension MSI files for the more common languages are delivered with the configuration utility in the Installers folder. You must configure each localized installer individually.

    To localize the Client Login Extension MSI files for languages other than those delivered with the Client Login Extension, see Section 6.1, Localizing Client Login Extension Files for Other Languages.

  9. To close the Client Login Extension Configuration utility window, click Exit.

    NOTE:You cannot run the Client Login Extension MSI file while it is open in the Client Login Extension Configuration utility.
