iManager should come up automatically when the server loads, but it is possible that they have removed the loading of it from the autoexec.ncf.

It is an apache/tomcat thing.  The management portal is loaded separately in its own mini web server.

Autoexec.ncf should have the following sequence in it:

SEARCH ADD SYS:\JAVA\BIN
(before the set of statements that start with; Network driver LOADs and BINDs are initiated via
...
and end with: MOUNT ALL)

(These do other things too...)
SYS:\SYSTEM\NMA\NMA5.NCF
BSTART.NCF
load nile.nlm
load httpstk.nlm /SSL /keyfile:"SSL CertificateIP"
LOAD PORTAL.NLM
LOAD NDSIMON.NLM
LOAD NICISDI.XLM
LOAD SASDFM.XLM
LOAD SAS.NLM
LOAD PKI.NLM

...

SEARCH ADD SYS:\TOMCAT\33\BIN
TOMCAT33

...

#Apache is now the NetWare Web Manager server
SEARCH ADD SYS:\APACHE
NVXADMUP

To get to iManager, you use a browser.  At this time, IE6 still works best.

In the address bar, type "https://.xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:2200/eMFrame/webacc?"  where the xxx.xxx stuff is the IP address of the server - and don't type the quotes.  You should be issued an SSL certificate, which you should accept.  You will then get a login screen.  In this login screen, the context is entered separately from the user ID, so don't put .ADMIN.ORG in the user ID field, just ADMIN.

Ewps, I put a leading dot in the IP address.  It should be https://xxx.xxx.xxx ...

Note:  The AUTOEXEC.NCF info is for a NetWare 6.0 box.  NetWare 6.5 uses Apache 2 and Tomcat 4.

As far as managing the licenses with iManager, I recommend you look into the NetWare 6 and/or iManager documentation.  The license management option is pretty straightforward to me, but if you've never done it before, it would be good to read up on it

The documentation for most of Novell's products is at http://www.novell.com/documentation/

The version of iManager you'll be using with NetWare 6 is most likely 1.5x or earlier, so check out the documentation for iManager 1.5.2.   There is also iManager documentation as part of the NetWare 6.0 documentation.

As far as the procedure, do as I said in your other question - install the new licensing first, then disassociate the old licenses, then associate the new server licenses.  If you have more than one server in the tree, you will need a server license for each server, which are downloadable for free from Novell.  MLA licensing lets you use the MLA license for all of the servers, but VLA licensing is one server instance per license.

After you install the new user licensing and remove the old user licensing, users may have to log out and back in in order to grab a new license instance.

You'd probably be surprised that NWAdmin32.exe can still deal with NetWare licensing... so what if iManager is broken?  You still have NWAdmin32.exe

'cause this is a remote branch site that normally would be managed across a 56K frame link, which NWAdmn32 doesn't work all that great across, hence they want to make sure it's working for future endeavors, from what I can tell.
