These instructions were compiled by Novell Technical Support and detail how to create a UNIX configuration file to run with Novell eDirectory 8.6 for Solaris or Novell eDirectory 8.5 for Solaris.
For more information or updates on this procedure, see TID-10075466.
First, download UNIXINF1.TGZ at http://support.novell.com/filefinder
The UNIX Information Tool is a UNIX script that gathers UNIX system information and Novell UNIX product configuration files. This tool helps you troubleshoot UNIX-related problems by concatenating configuration files and system information into a single log file. This log file can then be reviewed for potential problems.
- Download the tarred compressed file to your UNIX system.
- Extract the file using the following command:
gzip -dc unixinf1.tgz | tar xvf -
- Log in as root.
- Change to the directory where unixinfo was extracted.
- Type ./unixinfo
- Include the /tmp/unixinfo.log file when you open an incident with NTS.
unixinfo [directory | filename]
Default log file: /tmp/unixinfo.log
If you specify a directory, then unixinfo.log will be placed in that directory. You can also specify a complete path and filename for an alternate log file.
Before calling Novell for UNIX/eDirectory technical support, verify you have run the unixinfo script and have the log file ready. The default log file location is /tmp/unixinfo.log.
