NetWare Web Manager

By gustavo_betancourt ·
I get the following error when trying to start Web Manager in one of my NetWare 5.1 servers: "Security must be on or off when specified in admin config file". This comes up after the service says that it is listening on port 2200 which is normal. Then the error comes up and the service does not start. I tried reinstalling this service without overwriting files (so that I don't have to re-install Service Pack 5) and that did not work. I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions before I overwrite my current files with a re-install and have to re-install service pack 5 on this server as well.

This sounds like a possiblility of two problems. Chances are it's the first. Get a text editor (e.g. Notepad, pico, etc) and open SYS:\Novonyx\suitespot\admin-serv\config\ns-admin.conf After opening, make sure there is either an "on" or "off" next to the word "Security" on line 7. You may have to add the line, if Security is there, insert "on" or "off" depending on whether or not you want SSL connections to be used.

It is possible that you could also have a currupted certificate. Open NWadmin and check for "SSL CertificateDNS - 'server'" and "SSL CertificateIP - 'server'". THey should be inside the O. Also, check their properties to make sure everything looks ok.

Thank you for your suggestions. I tried working with both the ns-admin.conf and SSL certificates, but that did not fix the problem. I even recreated the SSL keys and that did not work. I went ahead and re-installed the Web Manager, replacing the duplicate files and that made the problem go away.
