Keep in mind the following information when you install Identity Manager by using the integrated installer:
Figuring out installation issues
Windows: The default location is C:\novell\IdentityManager\install\logs\. You can change the location of the log files based on the install location you specify.
"/home/siva/build/products/Reporting/IDMReport.bin" -DIA_USER_JRE_HOME="/opt/nov ell/idm/jre" -i silent -f "/tmp/idmreporting_configure.properties" execute command exitValue = 1 log file location :/tmp/idmreporting_configure.properties log file location :/opt/novell/idm/rbpm/IDMReporting//RPT_Install.log
The above snippet from the ii_install.log file indicates that the command has failed, because the exitValue is 1 (non-zero). For further analysis, refer to the /opt/novell/idm/rbpm/IDMReporting/RPT_Install.log as displayed in the command.
Passing mandatory parameters during configuration
Some of the inputs are not proper. They are highlighted in Red.
The port number is already in use.
The passed DNS hostname is invalid.
The DN format is incorrect.
Use a different port number if the port is already in use.
Specify a valid DNS name or specify a valid IP address if you don’t want to specify a DNS name.
Verify that a valid DN is specified in LDAP format.
Configuration fails if the hosts file contains 127.0.0.2 entry
Edit the /etc/hosts file if the hosts file has an entry with the 127.0.0.2 loopback address.
For example, 127.0.0.2 hostname. Comment it and make sure that the real IP address entry is in the file.
Installer throws java.io.FileNotFoundException
Issues with invoking installer in the GUI mode
See Identity Manager 4.0.2 Readme for a list of RPMs required for a successful installation and configuration of Identity Manager.
On Linux, the Remote Loader does not install through integrated installer
Also, port 8000 must be free to ensure a successful Identity Manager installation.
Tree name is auto generated when the tree name already exists
Secondary server installation
Check for free ports before starting the installation

Detecting the current state of the system
Linux/Solaris: The back up file is in the /etc/opt/novell/idm/install/conf/install_state.conf location.
Windows: The back up file is in the C:\Novell\conf\install_state.conf location.
Changing password in RBPM
If you perform a default eDirectory installation and apply a password policy to an existing user, then login as this user and perform a forgotten password procedure, you might see a message that says the Universal Password is not set after answering the challenge response questions.
Linux/UNIX: Add the following two lines to the pre_ndsd_start script located at /opt/novell/eDirectory/sbin (formerly in /etc/init.d):
IMPORTANT:When NDSD_TRY_NMASLOGIN_FIRST is set to true, the user's password is set to expired and is configured to permit grace logins. If the user's password policy does not use grace logins, the user is not prompted to use grace logins. Instead, the user is prompted to change the password. This is because NMAS removes the loginGraceLimit and loginGraceRemaining attributes during login if the password policy does not use grace logins.
If NDSD_TRY_NMASLOGIN_FIRST is not set to true, eDirectory does not enforce case sensitivity for passwords during login.
Windows: Right-clickand select . In the tab, click . Under , add the variable and set the value to . This should be done on any server that might handle NMAS logins via LDAP.
Restart eDirectory to apply the change.
The integrated installer does not properly handle the RBPM error codes
