NOWS SBE Web-Gui not showing updates

This document (7008128) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

Novell Open Workgroup Suite SBE 2.5

Situation

When opening the Web-Management-UI on Novell Open Workgroup Suite SBE ("simba"), the update-applet keeps showing the spinning wheel and doesn't refresh.

Resolution

While downloading new patch information and updating the RSS feed, these files are created:

/var/lib/simba/sbs/conf/checking.txt
/var/lib/simba/sbs/conf/checking_rss.txt

If the spinning wheel issue occurs, it is likely that there are leftovers from a previous instance. Please remove these files:

rm /var/lib/simba/sbs/conf/checking.txt
rm /var/lib/simba/sbs/conf/checking_rss.txt

Then, restart the simba daemon:

/etc/init.d/simba restart

and re-login to the web-frontend.
