    Default NOMACHINE - NX - Unable to run nxmanager

    hello.

    Opensuse 11.3

    here is my configuration files :

    /etc/sysconfig/apache2 :
    APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES="/etc/apache2/httpd.conf.local"

    Note : Doing this way ( recommanded by apache documentation ) I don't know if it is the good way as recommended by NOMACHINE documentation : <<It can be updated by adding the following directive before the "Global Environment" section >>

    /etc/apache2/httpd.conf.local
    Include /usr/NX/etc/manager.conf

    /usr/NX/etc/manager.conf :
    Alias /nxmanager/ "/usr/NX/share/htdocs/nxmanager/"
    ScriptAlias "/nxmanager" "/usr/NX/bin/nxmanager"
    <Directory "/usr/NX/">
    AllowOverride None
    Options None
    Order allow,deny
    ### ADDRESS RESTRICTIONS START ###
    Allow from all
    ### ADDRESS RESTRICTIONS STOP ###
    </Directory>

    /usr/NX/etc/manager.cfg ( just the modify part :

    #
    # Specify user name of Apache owner.
    #
    #ApacheUname = "nobody"
    ApacheUname = "wwwuser"

    #
    # Specify group name of Apache owner.
    #
    #ApacheGname = "nogroup"
    ApacheGname = "wwwgroup"


    Running this http://localhost/nxmanager from firefox I get :

    Running this http://localhost/nxmanager/ from firefox I get this :

    Access forbidden!
    You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected.
    If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

    any help should be great.

    Any way, nxclient is working. I can connect to server from my laptop or locally.

    Hello.

    Partially solved by re-running nxmanager --update.

    But know can't log with success in the nxmanager login screen : password error.
    But there no defined password ( and no passwdDB at all ) as I use SSHD authentication with PAM enabled.

    Both 'EnableUserDB' and 'EnablePasswordDB' are set to 0, so any user are being authenticated by SSHD account and then will be enabled to connect to the system.


    So How to connect to nxmanager ?

    usually nxserver and the rest of the bits needs to own or have access to those directories. They are usually owned by user nx or root. For example /usr/NX/var/db/ is nx:root It definitely seems to be wrong permissions somewhere. I've been using NX on openSUSE for years and never had issues.

    Thumbs up Re: NOMACHINE - NX - Unable to run nxmanager

    NOTE : All the commands are executed from my laptop on the server using an NX session using the root user as I manage the server from the laptop. The server have no screen and no keyboard. Using a normal user even with su can't stop the server.

    Have change owner
    chown -R nx:root /usr/NX

    have update nxmanager ( mandatory ; if not it does not work )
    nxmanager --update

    Ok now I get the login screen and I can log.

    Thank you very much for your help.
