Error: 50436 when issuing certificate in iManager (or error 50,436 when using ConsoleOne )

This document (7010478) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell iManager Plugins - Certificate Server
Novell ConsoleOne 1.3.6
Novell eDirectory 8.8 for All Platforms


When issuing a certificate using iManager or ConsoleOne the error 50436 can be returned.


Currently the only known way to work around this error is to restart the server that hosts the CA (Certificate Authority)

After restarting the server that hosts the CA the desired certificates can be issued.


Problem starting a new thread.

Additional Information

The server that hosts the CA can be found in iManager like this:
Authenticate to iManager
Menu item: Novell Certificate server
Sub menu: Configure Certificate authority
The Server hosting the Certificate Authority is then indicated at the top at the page as
"Host server: exampleServer.exampleContext"

The full error message is:
#define NE_FLM_COULD_NOT_START_THREAD 0xC504 ///< 0xC504 - Problem starting a new thread.
