Problem

A Forum reader asked this question:

"Is there any tip or trick to accelerate iManager 2.5 with iChain 2.3 SP4? The first screen of iManager appears with an Error text and it won't log on."

And here's the reply from Andrey Karyagin ...

Solution

The following Form Fill Policy works fine for me:

This is iManager 2.6 form fill policy for logging in ...

<urlPolicy>
     <name>iManager</name>
     <url>somename.somedomain.ru/nps/*</url>
     <formCriteria>
     <title>Novell iManager</title>
     <form name="AuthenticateForm" method=post action="webacc" 
target="_top">
      </formCriteria>
     <actions>
         <fill>
             <input name="username"    value="~cn">
             <input name="password"    value="~password">
         </fill>
         <post/>
     </actions>
</urlPolicy>

This next policy is used when the user's credentials have expired and the secret store needs to be repopulated with the user's new credentials.

<urlPolicy>
     <name>iManagerLoginFailure</name>
     <url>somename.somedomain.ru/nps/*</url>
      <formCriteria>
         fw.AuthFailHeader
      </formCriteria>
     <actions>
         <deleteRemembered>iManager</deleteRemembered>
         <redirect>somename.somedomain.ru/nps/iManager.html</redirect>
     </actions>
</urlPolicy>
