If you’ve set your SLES Server Permissions to be “Secure” instead of the default “Easy” (in the local security menu) you may find that installing and running the Access Manager components are a bit troublesome due to some flaws in the installation routines. Doing a little directory permissions preparation sorts it out for you simply enough.
For the Administration Console, do the following prior to the installation:
mkdir -p /opt/novell/tomcat5 chmod 755 /opt/novell/tomcat5 mkdir -p /opt/volera chmod 755 /opt/volera
For the Identity Server, do the following prior to the installation:
mkdir -p /opt/novell/tomcat5 mkdir –p /opt/novell/devman/jcc/certs/idp chmod –R 755 /opt/novell
For the Identity Server, do the following after the installation then restart the novell-tomcat service:
chmod 644 /opt/novell/devman/jcc/certs/idp/*.keystore
You should find that these actions will allow the services to run without errors.
