Wanting to deploy iFolder server in a Multi-server set up, the configuration does not complete and YaST returns the following error:

"Failed to configure Novell iFolder 3 Server"

Attempting the same at the command line with the simias-server-setup script returns the following:

Failed to connect to master server, Slave setup failed.
Check iFolder server is running on master server.
The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.


This issue can be overcome if the ladp groups plugin is configured on the master server. This can be done from command prompt with the command:
/opt/novell/fiolder3/bin/simias-server-setup --configure-plugins.
