The OES and YaST environments do not currently support non-ASCII passwords.
If you have password policies that support non-ASCII passwords, you should select theoption in the OES proxy install screen to enable all the OES scenarios to function correctly.
If you enter a password for the common proxy user via the change_proxy_pwd.sh command, it cannot contain special shell variables ($#, $_, or #?). These characters are interpreted by the shell while processing service scripts.
The workaround is to enter the password within single quotes. For example, you can enter the password novell$$ as 'novell$$'. The shell does not interpret the content within single quotes.
If a common proxy user used by NetStorage is assigned a password policy, you must ensure that the password size specified in the policy does not exceed 20 characters.
When you are configuring iFolder in a cluster, iFolder should not use the common proxy user. Instead, use the service level proxy user.
