2.2 Prerequisites

The following must be set up to use Novell Audit:

2.2.1 NICI

Any NetWare server that reports eDirectory events must be updated with the NICI 2.6.5 or later. This update is available at download.novell.com.

2.2.2 eDirectory

eDirectory 8.7 or 8.8 must be installed and configured in your environment. Novell Audit uses eDirectory to store product configuration, and requires eDirectory schema extensions specific to Novell Audit.

Make sure the tree is synchronized and error free. For detailed information on eDirectory Health Check procedures, see “Keeping eDirectory Healthy” in the eDirectory 8.7 Administration Guide.

To extend the schema and create the necessary objects, you must have Admin rights to the root of the tree where you plan to install Novell Audit. You must provide the administrator username and password during installation so the installation program can extend the schema.

2.2.3 iManager

Novell Audit is configured using the Novell Audit iManager plug-in, which requires iManager 2.5 or 2.6 (2.6 is preferred).
