Novell Messenger 2.2


Messenger logs are not getting created on an NSS volume. The Messenger Agent's web page on the logging tab shows no logs exist. The log directory is on a NSS volume such as /media/nss/DATA/novell/messenger/logs.


Either run as root by changing the user in the /etc/opt/novell/messenger/uid.conf file or setup Non-root access on an NSS volume by following the steps outlined in the Messenger Documentation.


The problem is the user that the messenger agent is running as is either not LUM enabled or does not have rights to the log directory.
