I've been trying to get the Fan-Out driver working, and I'm stuck on the
Core Driver installation. I go through the install, and everything seems
to go fine, but when I go to start the Core Driver, it complains that it
can't connect to the remote loader. I'm trying to install the whole
thing on one server that is running eDir 8.8.3 and IDM 3.6.

Here is the relevant trace information with the error:

DirXML Log Event -------------------
Driver:
\USCC-DEV-AUTH\uscc\services\idm\IDM-AuthDriverSet\FanoutCoreDev
Channel: Subscriber
Status: Retry
Message: Code(-9006) The driver returned a "retry" status
indicating that the operation should be retried later. Detail from
driver: No connection to remote loader

Here are the complete steps I'm going through to install the driver:

On server chi1ddir
1.) launch core driver installer
(/root/novinstall/idm36/NixDrvr/fan-out/IDMCoreDrivers/Linux/linux_x86_coredriver.bin)
2.) Select English language
3.) Accept license agreement
4.) Default install path (/usr/local)
5.) Remote loader password novell
6.) Confirm remote loader password novell
7.) Driver object password novell
8.) Confirm driver object password novell
9.) Default LDAP server host/IP (localhost)
10.) Default LDAP Server SSL Port (636)
11.) Accept certificate authority
12.) Admin user: admin.uscc
13.) Enter admin password
14.) Context for ASAM System Container: idm.services.uscc
15.) Core Driver Name: FanoutCoreDev
16.) Default Core Driver listening port (3451)
17.) Localhost IP/DNS for certificate security: chi1ddir
18.) eDirectory running on local system: Yes
19.) Use default nds.conf path
(/etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/nds.conf)
20.) Error creating server indexes:

Creating server indexes for server chi1ddir

** Error creating indexes
ldap_search_ext_s: No such object
Index deletion failed.

21.) Create the indexes for the following attributes with type “value”
(from IDM documentation):

GUID
Object_Class
ASAM_inputGUID
ASAM_eGroupMembers
ASAM_eGroupMembership
ASAM_inputReference
ASAM_platformAssociation
ASAM_platformAssociation_SS
ASAM_aliases
ASAM-NetAddressList
ASAM_eventsUpTo
ASAM_deletesUpTo
ASAM_deletePendingsUpTo
ASAM_passwordsUpTo
ASAM_eventError_SS
ASAM_platformSetAssociation_SS
ASAM_UIDGIDAssocation_SS
OU
C
L
O
T
S

22.) Create the user ASAMMaster.services.uscc and give it supervisor
rights to idm.services.uscc, associate.people.uscc, and
asssociate-groups.people.uscc

In Designer
23.) Right click on Auth Tree Identity Vault and select "Import from
configuration file"
24.) Select the file that was created by the Core Driver installation
and click ok (chi1ddir:/usr/local/ASAM/rules/Fan-Out-IDM3_6_0-V1.xml)
25.) Change Activation Group to "Linux/Unix)
26.) Change Remote Host Name and Port to "localhost" leave the port as
8090
27.) Browse to the ASAM Master user (uscc\services\ASAMMaster)
28.) Enter "novell" as the ASAM Maseter User Password, Driver Object
Password, and Remote Loader Password
29.) Click "Next" to create the driver in designer.
30.) Export the driver to a file
31.) Import the driver in iManager (set security equivilance to
admin.uscc)
32.) Start the driver in iManager
