If you will enable Novell File Reporter in eDirectory and you have Universal Passwords set up for all users in your tree, do the following before installing and configuring any Novell File Reporter components:
Before installing the NFR Engine, create a new container in eDirectory to store the NFR proxy objects.
Create a Universal Password Policy using Novell iManager.
Make sure that the following settings are met:
- Number of days before password can be changed: 0 or not set - Number of days before password expires: 0 or not set - Use Microsoft complexity policy OR - Use Novell syntax with the following settings: --- Maximum number of characters in password: 36 or greater --- Minimum number of unique characters: 1+ --- Maximum number of times a specific character can be used: NOT SET --- Maximum number of times a specific character can repeat sequentially: NOT SET --- Allow the password to be case-sensitive --- Allow numeric characters in password --- Allow non-alphanumeric characters in the password --- Allow non-US ASCII characters
Associate the Universal Password Policy with the new container you created in Step 1.
When creating your proxy objects during the installation of the NFR Engine, make sure that you specify the FDN of this container.
