When upgrading NMAS on a UNIX platform, you might be prompted to replace libspmdclnt.so. If this happens, answer Yes.
If you uninstall the Novell Client, you must uninstall and reinstall the NMAS Client if it is used by another application.
We strongly recommended that you upgrade NMAS to the latest version on all servers.
You must have NMAS installed on a server that holds a writable replica of the user’s object in order for the user to use NMAS.
You must have the Novell International Cryptographic Infrastructure (NICI) Client installed on each client workstation that will run ConsoleOne® and NMAS software.
If you do not restart the server after installing NMAS and you try to reset passwords, you receive an error message.
You should keep the login method up to date. The eDirectory UNIX/Linux and OES/Linux installs might not provide a way to upgrade the method.
The nmasinst utility does not work on AIX. Therefore, use iManager as described in Section 3.1.2, Using Novell iManager to Install a Login or Post-Login Method or use other platforms, as described in Section 3.1.1, Using the nmasinst Utility to Install a Login Method.
