    Yast OES Install and Configuration

    I have installed OES2 on SUSE 10 SP1, I installed edirectory and added a
    read replica to it, and this all seems to be working fine. Today I went
    into Yast and clicked on OES Install and Configuration and after
    watching the bar menu go through downloading and parsing the window pops
    up for a second and then just disappears. Any idea why this will not
    open up and what I need to fix it. FYI, this is happening on more than
    one server.

    Thanks
    Andy

    Re: Yast OES Install and Configuration

    I have not had any luck sending attachments to this forum. Not user if
    it is just not allowed or if I am doing something wrong.

    My problem is when I click on OES Install and Configuration under Yast
    nothing happens. The window never opens up. I can see what OES
    products were installed by going under Software and Software Management
    under Yast. I was expecting to see under OES Install and Configuration
    not only what products were installed but also be able to select
    additional products to install. But like I said this window never opens up.

    So, try this:

    "yast oes-install"

    or

    "yast novell-lum"

    Does it work?

    "yast oes-install" does not work.

    "Yast Novell-lum" does come up but this is not what I need to do. I
    have also found that I can not go in Printers under Yast, it just hangs.
    I can go under printers in the Control Center but oddly enough it will
    not allow me to change the name of a printer. I am not sure if this is
    just a training thing or a bug but if I go and edit the properties their
    is no button to save any changes for the printer.

    Is their any feature to do like an OES repair. Seems like I have alot
    of bugs but I have also already installed Edirectory and a replica on
    this server and put it into production so I hate to just blow it away
    and start over.

    Any suggestions?
    Andy

    Try login at the server console itself with root.
    Then try just: yast
    If it goes well then you have problem with LUM-enabled users.

    There should be no users except root in on OES server.
    eDIR will look first in the server itself to see if the user exist.
    If it exists it will not look into eDIR.
    Same thing for the rights...

    Check if there is a file called nssid.sh in: /opt/novell/oes-install.

    The best documentation is: OES2-Planning and Implementation Guide
    Novell Documentation
    see chapter: 6.0 Caveats for Implementing OES 2 Services

    Re: Yast OES Install and Configuration

    I had the same problem here.

    The file nssid.sh did not exist, copied from another (working) server
    and changed the rights (0755) of the file -> same thing.

    My server with the problem was running inside a VMWare ESX 3.5 server.

    In the install source, there was a yast source for the DVD.

    I added 2 ftp sources (SLES and OES2) from our ftp server and everything
    went fine from there.

    The problem looked like YaST was not able to find all it's software.

    Re: Yast OES Install and Configuration

    I had this problem. After the installation was completed, all the installation sources were off. I put them on again and after that all went OK.

    Re: Yast OES Install and Configuration

    I know this is an old thread, but I had the exact same problem.

    I followed TID 3812568 but it did not work, but lead me to the idea of removing all the OES2sp3 Update repositories and low and behold it worked. ???

    Thanks
    Bob

    BTW, the reason I am still using OES2sp3 is because we are stuck with 32bit
