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.

    In the last step there is another command that must be run before restarting the novell-tomcat service:

    chmod 644 /opt/novell/devman/jcc/conf/*.keystore
