4.1 Unable to Install iManager with Older Version of eDirectory

Issue: You will receive an error message while installing iManager if any older version of eDirectory (lesser than 9.0) is installed on the same machine.

Workaround: Click OK in the pop-up message to abort the installation and upgrade eDirectory to 9.0 or above.

4.2 Multiple eDirectory Plug-in Modules Displayed Under the Installed NetIQ Plug-in Modules

Issue: Multiple eDirectory plug-in modules are displayed under the installed NetIQ plug-in modules. This happens when both eDirectory 9.0 and eDirectory 9.0 SP1 plug-in modules are installed.

Workaround: if you are using the eDirectory 9.0 plug-ins, then you must uninstall the eDirectory 9.0 plug-ins from the installed NetIQ plug-in modules and restart the tomcat server.

  • Go to Availavle NetIQ Plug-in module.

  • Add eDirectory 9.0 SP1 plug-in from the local directory.

  • Click Install.

  • Restart the tomcat server.

4.3 iManager Displays an Error Message While Upgrading to 3.0 SP1 on Linux

Issue: iManager displays an error message while upgrading from 3.0 to 3.0 SP1 on Linux. This occurs due to the eDirectory 9.0 plug-ins which are already installed.

Workaround: Remove eDirectory 9.0 plug-ins before upgrading iManager to 3.0 SP1.

4.4 Plugin Studio Using the Same RBS is Not Accessible in Multiple iManager

Issue: Plugin studio created in one iManager is not accessible in another iManager when both of them are using the same Role Based Services.

Workaround: Create individual plugin studio in each iManager.

Issue: While upgrading iManager to its latest version, plugins are not getting upgraded automatically. You will see few functionality issues with the ICE and the eDirectory Audit plugins after upgrading iManager.
