3.1.1 Overriding Proxy Settings at Login

As a .NET application, NSMAdmin is managed by the proxy configurations and exceptions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. If you do not have an exception in your proxy settings to allow for NSMAdmin, the NSMAdmin application might not launch.

Try to launch NSMAdmin using the default setting first. If you are unable to log in, use the following procedures:

  1. Repeat Step 1 through Step 5, then click the Proxy and Logging Options button to expand the authentication dialog box.

  2. Select Do not use a Proxy.

  3. Click Login.

3.1.2 Enabling Temporary Logging Override

Selecting Enable Temporary Logging Override indicates that you want Novell Storage Manager to override any logging configuration settings you have set for the NSM Engine and the NSM Agent in NSMAdmin, and to create log files during this session. The data contained in the log files might be useful for troubleshooting.
