Novell Messenger displays incorrect version on HTTP WebConsole

This document (7012726) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell Messenger 2.2


When updating Novell Messenger to version 2.2.2. It does not update the nnmVersion attribute on either agent.
Shows the wrong version on HTTP webconsole Configuration for the agent (previous version)
rpm -qa | grep -i messenger displays 2.2.2 rpms


This is a cosmetic bug. The workaround is as follows:
  1. Edit the nnmVersion attribute to correct the version for each agent.
  • ConsoleOne | MessengerService | Server object | Properties of MessagingAgent and ArchiveAgent
  • Select the Other tab and Expand nnmVersion
  • Select the version and then click Modify.
  • Provide the current version information.
2. Restart the agents.
rcnovell-nmaa restart; rcnovell-nmma restart


Cosmetic bug.
