IBM Docs – Configuring the J2C Alias
Sun, Apr 20th 2014 4:25p   andyyiu
The IBM Docs application will need access to the files repository to retrieve files and post edited files.  This is done using a J2C alias for an id already defined in LDAP. Log into the IBM Integrated Solutions Console on the Deployment Manager through a browser.

IBM Docs Prerequisites Checklist
Thu, Mar 20th 2014 4:22p   andyyiu
Below is a set of settings which I typically check/implement as part IBM Docs deployments.  At the end, I intentionally disable the linux server firewall to prevent issues with the WebSphere node federation. Hostname / IP Set the hostname for the system and the IP Address. This will vary depending on your flavor of Linux. Log into the Linux server. Open the NetworkManager and set the IP address of the server.

Configuring NFS v3 on a Linux Server
Wed, Mar 19th 2014 5:42a   andyyiu
Before you start configuring a Network File Server (NFS) on a Linux server, there are a couple of things that you need to know. NFS access is controlled through a combination of the client’s IP address and the UID/GID of the account that’s used to access the NFS share. Running NFS on a Linux server which is not backed up leaves you vulnerable to data loss.  If your application is business critical, consider investing in a hardcore storage system. The configuration is not rocket sci [read] Keywords: ibm application applications linux network server

Sametime 85x and Virtualhosts
Sun, Feb 26th 2012 11:03p   andyyiu
Sametime 8.5.x has really helped in consolidating management of Sametime and WebSphere configurations into a single location. However, it is with this configuration that some additional issues crop up. Several Sametime components utilize the a technology called RTC4Web. This is used extensively in the Sametime Proxy, Advanced and Meetings server components. When more than one of these components is installed in the same cell, messages may be misrouted to the incorrect location. Virtualhosts can [read] Keywords: ibm sametime security server websphere

If you have been patiently waiting for the release of Sametime 8.5.2, the wait is over.  Sametime 8.5.2 is now available for download through the normal channels! One thing you will definitely want to note is the location change of the documentation. Instead of publishing the Sametime 8.5.2 in the traditional IBM information center, the documentation has been moved to the wiki.

Do you really have Sametime 8.5.1 FP1 applied?
Mon, May 9th 2011 5:15p   Andy Yiu
Sametime 8.5.1 FP1, also known as 8.5.1.1 has many fixes which should be applied to an environment.  However, it appears that a critical step is missing from the readme file.  The IBM installation manager will install the files onto the server, however to commit the changes to the environment, you will either need to run through the Sametime Cluster Guided activity and upgrade the existing cluster, or apply the changes manually through the WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console.

It’s the end of the road for POTS/PSTN
Thu, Dec 31st 2009 10:08a   Andy Yiu
It may not seem like news to anyone now as many of us have already moved from PSTN/POTS services to VOIP and cellular telecommunication providers, but AT&T has stated that it is now time to cut the cord and allow this technological relic to finally rest in piece.  For many consumers, this will not affect anything.  So who does this change affect?  Most people most affected by this change will be those that live in rural areas where there are no broadband ISPs willing to provide service.  [read] Keywords: network security
