6.2 Deploying iFolder Server

This section describes how to configure Novell iFolder server in a Multi-server environment.

6.2.1 Configuring the iFolder Enterprise Server

After you install the iFolder enterprise server, you must configure the iFolder services, including the LDAP, iFolder system, and iFolder administration settings.

  1. If you plan to use an NSS volume as the System Store Path for the users’ iFolder data, use iManager to create the NSS volume, then create a directory on the volume.

    For information, refer to Managing NSS Volumes in the OES 11 SP2: NSS File System Administration Guide for Linux.

  2. If you are using an NSS volume to store user data, you must set up NSS file system trustee rights for the Web server user object wwwrun before restarting your web server. At a terminal console prompt, log in as the root user or equivalent, then enter

    rights -f /media/nss/NSSVOL/dirname -r rwfcem trustee wwwrun.ou.o.treename
    

    If you ever get, “An Internal Error has occurred” error message within the iManager plug-in, this is an indication that you have not set up file system trustee rights within NSS properly.

  3. Log in to the server as the root user, or open a terminal console, enter su, then enter the root password.

  4. Start YaST, follow the YaST on-screen instruction to finish the installation. For more information see Step 1 through Step 7 in the section Section 6.1, Installing iFolder on an Existing OES 11 Server.

  5. Select Use Following Configuration and click Novell iFolder to change the default configuration settings for iFolder.

    If you decide to use default settings, click Next to start Novell iFolder 3 configuration.

    IMPORTANT:For security reasons, it is recommended that you always change the default iFolder configuration settings.

  6. Follow the YaST on-screen instructions to proceed through the Novell iFolder 3 configuration. The following table summarizes the decisions you make.

    HINT:If the iFolder configuration failed at any stage, refer to the /var/log/YaST2/y2log file to find the details on the failure that help you in analyzing and troubleshooting the issues.

    Install Settings

    Description

    iFolder components

    • Select the iFolder components to be configured: Select the components you want to configure. You can choose any combination of iFolder components from the given options. The corresponding screens are displayed depending on your selection.

    • iFolder Server (optional): Select the check box adjacent to the iFolder Server to configure iFolder server.This option lets you configure the settings for the iFolder server. It is the central repository for storing user iFolders and synchronizing files for enterprise users.

    • iFolder Web Admin (optional): Select the check box adjacent to the iFolder Web Admin to configure iFolder Web Admin server. This option lets you create and configure settings for the Administrator user. The iFolder Admin user is the primary administrator of the iFolder Enterprise Server. The Web Admin server does not need to be configured on the iFolder Enterprise Server. Devoting a separate server to the Web Admin application improves the performance of the iFolder Enterprise Server by reducing the admin traffic.

    • iFolder Web Access (optional): Select the check box adjacent to the iFolder Web Access to configure iFolder Web Access server. This option lets you configure the Web Access server, which is an interface that lets users have remote access to iFolders on the enterprise server. The Web Access server lets users perform all the operations equivalent to those of the iFolder client through using a standard Web browser. The Web Access server does not need to be configured in the same iFolder Enterprise Server. Channeling the user tasks to a separate server and thereby reducing the HTTP requests helps to improve the performance of the iFolder Enterprise Server.

    Novell iFolder System Configuration

    • Name Used to Identify the iFolder System to Users: A unique name to identify your iFolder 3 server.

      For example, iFolder Server.

    • System Description: A descriptive label for your iFolder 3 server. For example, iFolder3 Enterprise Server

    • Path to the Server Data File: Specify the case-sensitive address of the location where the iFolder enterprise server stores iFolder application files as well as the users' iFolders and files.

      For example, /var/simias/data/simias. This location cannot be modified after install.

    • Path to the Recovery Agent Certificates (optional): Specify the path to the recovery agent certificates that are used for recovering the encryption key. After you configure the path to the Recovery Agent, you must load the Agent certificates to this location. For more information, see Section 6.7, Recovery Agent Certificates .

      By default, eDirectory CA certificate is copied in this location with the name sscert. You can export the private key of this certificate using iManager. For information, see Section 6.7.6, Exporting eDirectory CA Certificate Using iManager

    Novell iFolder System Configuration

    • Name of iFolder Server: Specify a unique name to identify your iFolder server. For example, IF3EastS

    • iFolder public URL Host or IP Address: Specify the public URL to reach the iFolder server.

      IMPORTANT:You must specify the DNS name of the server as iFolder Public URL to connect the client to the server using a DNS name. In this case, users need not remember all the IP addresses they are provisioned to. A single DNS name can map them to the respective server IP based on their location as in office or home.

    • iFolder private URLHost or IP Address: Specify the private URL corresponding to the iFolder server to allow communication between the servers within the iFolder domain. The Private URL and the Public URL can be the same.

      NOTE:You can use a single URL for the iFolder server if it is accessed only inside the corporate firewall. If the server needs to be accessed outside the firewall, you must provide two different URLs: Private and Public. The private URL is used for server to server communication within the corporate firewall and this should not be exposed to outside of the firewall. The public URL is used for the iFolder clients that can communicate from outside the corporate firewall. The clients can be inside or outside of the firewall and based on this, you can use private or public URL, or use public URL all the time.

    Novell iFolder System Configuration

    • Configure SSL for iFolder: There are three options to select from.

      • SSL: Select SSL to enable a secure connection between the iFolder server, iFolder Web Admin server, iFolder Web Access server, and the iFolder clients. iFolder uses the HTTPS channel for communication.

      • Non SSL: Select Non SSL to enable unsecured communication between the iFolder server, Web Admin server, Web Access server and the clients. iFolder uses the HTTP channel for communication.

      • Both: This option is selected by default. Selecting Both enables you to select secure or non secure channel for communication between the iFolder server, Web Admin server, Web Access server and the clients. By default, these components use the HTTPS (secure) communication channel. However, all components can also be configured to use HTTP channel.

    • iFolder Port to Listen On: Specify the port for the iFolder to Listen On. Port 443 is the default for SSL.

    • Install into Existing iFolder Domain: If left unselected, this server becomes the Master iFolder server. Select this option when you want to use an existing iFolder domain and provide the Master server information.

      IMPORTANT:You must ensure that the server you install and the current iFolder domain are in the same LDAP tree.

      • Private URL of the Master Server: Specify the private URL of the Master iFolder server that holds the master iFolder data for synchronization to the current iFolder Server. For example: https://127.0.1.1. For more information, see the Section 6.2.2, Configuring the iFolder Slave Server

    • Configure LDAP Groups plugin: Select this option to configure the LDAP Groups plug-in. If this option is left unselected, iFolder will not have the LDAP Groups support enabled.

    Novell iFolder LDAP Configuration

    • Directory Server Address: The IP address shown is the default LDAP server for this service. If you do not want to use the default, select a different LDAP server in the list. If you are installing into an existing tree, ensure that the server you select has a master replica or read/write replica of eDirectory.

      If you need to add an alternate LDAP server (including Active Directory) to the list, you must specify the following values:

    • Use alternate LDAP server: Select this check box to specify an alternate LDAP server. On selecting this check box, the subsequent fields get enabled.

    • Alternate Directory Server Address: Specify the host or IP address of the alternate LDAP server that iFolder must use.

    • LDAP port: Specify the LDAP port to use for the alternate server.

    • LDAP secure port: Specify the LDAP secure port to use for the alternate server.

    • Admin name and context: Specify the administrator’s full distinguished name for the alternate LDAP server. For example, cn=LdapAdmin,o=acme.

    • Enter the admin password: Enter the password for the alternate LDAP server.

    In case your directory server is a DSFW server, follow the steps given below to configure iFolder with DSFW server:

    1. Select the Use alternate LDAP server check box.

    2. Specify the IP address of the DSFW server in the Alternate Directory Server Address field.

    3. Specify 1389 in the LDAP port field and 1636 in the LDAP secure port field.

    4. Specify the eDirectory DN format and not DC context format in the Admin name and context field.

    5. Enter the password in the Enter the admin password field.

    Novell iFolder System Configuration

    • The iFolder Default Administrator: Specify the username for the default iFolder Admin user. Use the full distinguished name of the iFolder Admin user. For example:cn=admin,o=acme.

    • iFolder Admin Password: Specify a password for the iFolder Admin user.

    • Verify iFolder Admin Password: Type the password for the iFolder Admin user again.

    • LDAP Proxy User: Specify the full distinguished name of the LDAP Proxy user. For example:cn=iFolderproxy,o=acme. You must ensure that the proxy user's context is present in the LDAP server. This means that for a proxy user cn=iFolderproxy,o=acme, the container o=acme must be present in the LDAP server. This user must have the Read right to the LDAP service. The LDAP Proxy user is used for provisioning the users between the iFolder Enterprise Server and the LDAP server. If the Proxy user does not exist, it is created and granted the Read right to the LDAP Search context(s).  If the Proxy user already exists, it is granted the Read right to the LDAP Search context(s).  If the Proxy user already exists, but the given credentials dont match, then a new Proxy user is automatically created. The Proxy user's domain name (dn) and password are stored by the iFolder.

      During eDirectory configuration, if you have selected the Use Common Proxy User as default for OES Products check box, then the proxy user and password fields are populated with common proxy user name and password. For more information on common proxy, refer to Common Proxy User in the OES 11 SP2: Planning and Implementation Guide.

      NOTE:If you are using Active Directory or OpenLDAP as an LDAP source, you must not use common proxy.

    Novell iFolder System Configuration

    • LDAP Proxy User Password: Specify a password for the LDAP Proxy user. By default, it is YaST-generated password. This field is disabled, if you have selected the Use Common Proxy User as default for OES Products check box during eDirectory configuration.

      IMPORTANT:You are recommended not to use this YaST-generated default password. You must specify the new proxy user password.

    • Verify LDAP Proxy User Password: Type the password for the LDAP Proxy User again.

    • LDAP Search Context Click Add, then specify an LDAP tree context to be searched for users and provisioning them in to iFolder. For example, o=acme, o=acme2,oro=acme3. You must ensure that the LDAP Search Context field does not remain empty. If the field is empty, the iFolder installation fails. You can modify the search context even after the configuration is complete by using the web admin console. For more information, see Accessing and Viewing the Server Details Page.

      IMPORTANT:You must ensure the following:

      • The LDAP search context that you specify must be present in the LDAP server. If the LDAP search context is not present, the iFolder installation fails.

      • In a multi-server setup, all the search contexts of the slave servers must be present in the master server as well.

    • LDAP Naming Attribute: Select which LDAP attribute of the User account to apply when authenticating users. Each user enters a Username in this specified format at login time. Common Name (cn) is the default option.

      For example, if a user named John Smith has a common name of jsmith and e-mail of john.smith@example.com, this field determines whether the user enters jsmith or john.smith@example.com as the Username when logging in to the iFolder server. This setting cannot be changed after the install using the Web Admin console.

      If your directory server is configured with some other attribute as a unique login attribute for the users and you want to specify the same as login attribute for iFolder, then select the others option and specify the attribute name in the Select an alternate LDAP attribute field.

    • Require a secure connection between the LDAP server and the iFolder Server: Select this option to establish a secure connection between the LDAP server and the iFolder server. This option is selected by default. If the LDAP server co-exists on the same machine as the iFolder server, an administrator can disable SSL, which increases the performance of LDAP authentications.

    iFolder Web Access Configuration

    • An Apache alias that will point to the iFolder Web Access Application: Specify an Apache alias to point to the iFolder Web Admin application. This is an admin-friendly pointer for the Apache service. For example, /access

    • The host or IP address of the iFolder server that will be used by the iFolder Web Access application: Specify the hostname or IP address of the iFolder Enterprise Server to be managed by the iFolder Web Admin application. The iFolder Web Admin application manages this host.

    • Connect to iFolder server using SSL: This option is selected by default to establish a secure connection between iFolder enterprise server and the iFolder Web Access application.

    • iFolder server port to connect on: Specify the port for the iFolder server to connect to the Web Access application. Port 443 is the default. Port 80 is the default value for non-SSL communication.

    • Require a secure connection between the browser and the iFolder Web Access application: Select the check box to establish a secure connection between the Web browser and the iFolder Web Access application. This enables a secure SSL channel between the two.

    iFolder Web Admin Configuration

    • An Apache alias that will point to the iFolder Web Admin Application: Specify the Apache alias to point to the iFolder Web Access Application. This is a user-friendly pointer for the Apache service. For example, /admin

    • The host or IP address of the iFolder server that will be used by the iFolder Web Admin application: Specify the host or IP address of the iFolder Enterprise Server to be used by the iFolder Web Access application. This Web Access application performs all the user-specific iFolder operations on the host that runs the iFolder Enterprise Server.

    • Connect to iFolder server using SSL: This option is selected by default to establish a secure connection between iFolder enterprise server and the iFolder Web Admin application.

    • iFolder server port to connect on: Specify the port for the iFolder server to connect to the Web Admin application. Port 443 is the default. Port 80 is the default value for non-SSL communication.

    • Require a secure connection between the browser and the iFolder Web Admin application: Select the check box to establish a secure connection between the Web browser and the iFolder Web Admin application. This enables a secure SSL channel between the two.

  7. When the system prompts you to restart the Apache server, accept the option by clicking Yes, then restart the Apache server. This is necessary to use the new settings.

    To manually restart the Apache Web server,

    1. Open a terminal console, then log in as the root user.

    2. Stop the Apache server by entering either of the following commands at the prompt:

      /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
      
      rcapache2 stop
      
    3. Start Apache by entering either of the following commands at the prompt:

      /etc/init.d/apache2 start
      
      rcapache2 start
      
  8. Go to Novell iManager to install the Novell iFolder plug-in or to manage iFolder services.

6.2.2 Configuring the iFolder Slave Server

To deploy iFolder server in a Multi-server set up,

After you configure the iFolder enterprise master server, you must configure the iFolder slave servers.

  1. Select Use Following Configuration and click Novell iFolder in the window displayed.

    To manually restart the Apache Web server,

    1. Open a terminal console, then log in as the root user.

    2. Stop the Apache server by entering either of the following commands at the prompt:

      /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
      
      rcapache2 stop
      
    3. Start Apache by entering either of the following commands at the prompt:

      /etc/init.d/apache2 start
      
      rcapache2 start
      
  6. Go to Novell iManager to install the Novell iFolder plug-in or to manage iFolder services.

  7. If you are using an NSS volume to store user data, you must set up NSS file system trustee rights for the Web server user object wwwrun before restarting your web server. At a terminal console prompt, log in as the root user or equivalent, then enter

    rights -f /media/nss/NSSVOL -r rwfcem trustee wwwrun.ou.o.treename
    

    If you ever get An Internal Error has occurred error message within the iManager plug-in, this is a sure sign that you have not set up file system trustee rights within NSS properly.

6.2.3 Managing Server IP Change

When you change the Novell OES 11 server IP address either through YaST or through command line, it does not automatically change the iFolder Service IP address. You can change the iFolder service IP address only by reconfiguring the iFolder service either through YaST or command line.

  1. To change the IP address of an iFolder Enterprise server,

    1. In the Web Admin console, click the Server tab and select the desired server.

      1. Change the Public URL and Private URL to reflect the new IP address and click OK.

      2. If the IP address change is for a master server, change the master URL for all the slave servers by using the Server details page of the respective slave servers listed in the Server page.

        For more information on this, see Accessing and Viewing the Server Details Page.

      3. If the LDAP server is configured to the same OES 11 server, change the URL by using the Server details page.

        For more information on this, see LDAP Server.

  2. To change the IP address of the Web Admin server,

    1. In a terminal console, run the following command and change the iFolder enterprise server URL used by the Web Admin server application.

      /opt/novell/ifolder3/bin/ifolder-admin-setup

  3. To change the IP address of the Web Access server,

    1. In a terminal console, run the following command and change the iFolder enterprise server URL used by the Web Access server application.

      /opt/novell/ifolder3/bin/ifolder-access-setup

      For more information on this, see Section 6.3, Configuring the iFolder Web Access Server.

  4. Restart the system.

IMPORTANT:You must ensure that all the users whose iFolder clients are connected to the old server IP, are updated the client with the new IP address of the server. For more information on configuring server IP address in an iFolder client, see Viewing and Modifying iFolder Account Settings in the Novell iFolder 3.9.2 Cross-Platform User Guide.

If the server is SSL enabled, you must ensure that the new SSL certificate is accepted by all the iFolder users.If a DNS name is used in the iFolder set-up and the new IP address uses the existing DNS name, then you don’t need to change the DNS name for the client, instead accept the new certificate.
