Although not officially supported by Novell, it is possible for iManager 2.6 to run on a 64-bit Opteron System running SLES 9 SP1 or later (64-bit). By following the steps below, you should be able to get iManager up and running on one of these systems.

1. From within YaST, install the following prerequisite packages from the 64-bit SLES 9 SP1 media: compat-32bit

2. Run the iManager 2.6 install as you normally would by executing the iManagerInstallLinux.bin file. You will receive an error at the end of the install: "The installation of Novell iManager 2.6 is complete, but some errors occurred during the install. The configuration failed or required packages failed to install:"

3. To resolve the issue that causes the above error, comment out the following lines at the end of the /etc/opt/novell/tomcat4/tomcat4.conf file by placing a # in front of them:

if [ -x $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/i386/ ]; then
    export LD_PRELOAD=$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/i386/

4. Start up Tomcat4 using the command /etc/init.d/novell-tomcat4 start

You should now be able to access iManager and authenticate to your directory of choice!
