How to use NBM troubleshooting tools


Novell BorderManager 3.7

Novell BorderManager 3.8


To help NTS and Engineering to troubleshoot diverse aspect of NBM configuration, three utilities have been created.



Running acldump.nlm on the BM servers dumps acl information (Access Control Rules) to sys:/etc/proxy/acl_rule.txt file.


Running cfgdump.nlm on the BM server dumps BM configuration to sys:etc\proxy\dump.txt file. You can specify the filename as command line argument if you want cfgdump to copy config info to different file:

load cfgdump.nlm bm-config.txt. This will create sys:etc\proxy\bm-config.txt

- Proxy.nlm has to be unloaded before run cfgdump


Running bm3rmall.nlm will clean up filter configuration along with proxy and vpn configuration from NDS. This will only work with NBM 3.7. For NBM 3.8, ICE will be used. An update section in this tid will follow with detailed info about how to use ICE to clean up NBM 3.8.


These files are included in the latest BM patch, BM37FP3D.EXE and above and they located in the UNSUPPORTED directory.
