Sametime meetings not working in STProxy web client
Wed, Dec 17th 2014 11:11a   Ben Williams
I found that for a customer the meetings icons in the STProxy web client wasn’t bringing up the user’s meeting rooms. After a bit of debugging server trace showed that an LtpaToken was being generated but the browser wasn’t getting an LtpaToken returned to it. It drove me made because the STProxy doesn’t need to have SSO enabled for it to work like the Meeting server does, regardless of that, SSO worked in all directions between the Community server and the Meeting server [read] Keywords: ibm sametime community server xml

Sametime 9 policies not working due to slashes in the policy name in SSC
Fri, Dec 5th 2014 6:11a   Ben Williams
I had come back on site to a customer to deploy some other Sametime 9 services and found that the managed-settings.xml wasn’t being applied to the clients. I remembered reading Gabriella Davis’ blog http://turtleblog.info/2014/04/02/problems-deploying-sametime-policies-the-missing-link so I found it and at first I enabled POLICY_DEBUG_LEVEL=5 and then updated console.properties adding  SSCUserName, SSCPassword and removing SSCEncodedAuthorization.

Cannot edit Media Manager policies due to incomplete xml data in DB2
Tue, Nov 25th 2014 11:10a   Ben Williams
I had a few problems with a customer’s deployment of Sametime 9 which probably come down to deployment plans and the order of the servers being installed. During installation I had problems detailed in “System version is null” on new IBM Sametime Video Manager installation which forced me to uninstall the VMGR and install again with a new deployment plan. The outcome of this was that I could not administer the default policies nor create new Media Manager policies in the SSC, I saw the [read] Keywords: admin agent connections ibm policies sametime application applications citrix database db2 password server sql xml

“System version is null” on new IBM Sametime Video Manager installation
Mon, Oct 20th 2014 3:11p   Ben Williams
I am installing Sametime 9 for a customer but had a prickly moment after installing the VMGR on RHEL 6.5. After installing I couldn’t access the VMGR from the SSC, it was registered, I couldn’t get access to the SIP peer and other details. Looking in the VMGR SystemOut.log I saw the following: [10/13/14 12:24:02:709 BST] 000000a0 APIAuthorizat I com.polycom.proximo.api.support.servlet.APIAuthorizationFilter passLicensingTest API Licensing: rejecting request; API is not licensed and n [read] Keywords: connections ibm lotus notes notes client sametime java linux

CCM/FileNet search index fails in IBM Connections 4.5 due to special character
Mon, Sep 22nd 2014 6:11a   Ben Williams
The customer told me that his search index never completed correctly when Connections was initially deployed and now users are complaining that search results do not contain CCM documents. The customer had tried recreating the index but to no avail and called me to take a look. I first enabled trace on one of the infrastructure nodes (*=info: com.ibm.connections.search.index.indexing.*=all: com.ibm.connections.search.seedlist.*=all: com.ibm.connections.httpClient.*=all: com.ibm.connections.searc [read] Keywords: connections ibm ldd lotus applications community interface java password security server websphere wiki xml

Sametime 9 business cards revisited and beaten!
Thu, Aug 21st 2014 3:16p   Ben Williams
Over the years I have always struggled to get to grips with business cards and particularly photos mainly because I do it for a customer, forget about it and then have to do it again six months later. I have a Sametime 9 build coming up and I wanted to revisit business cards and for once write a conclusive guide which I have decided to share in case it helps anyone else out there. Note – I have not looked at (yet) the mobile applications and how business cards and photos are obtained from [read] Keywords: acl admin administration collaboration connections domino ibm ldd lotus notes notes client roaming sametime application applications centos community database email java linux mobile office password server xml

Stproxyconfig.xml is overwritten with incorrect APNs port and changed when applying an update
Fri, Aug 15th 2014 6:11a   Ben Williams
I have seen this problem a couple of years ago but didn’t follow it up with IBM through a PMR. For another customer I found the following happened after I applied the latest Sametime Proxy 8.5.2.1 (STProxy) patch available on Fix Central. After applying the update the stproxyconfig.xml was changed and the bespoke values that were previously there removed. This was odd in itself but after applying the values again through the SSC the values sticked. The values that were removed are as follo [read] Keywords: ibm sametime apple server xml

Solution for Sametime connection issue with iNotes when SSL is used
Thu, Jun 26th 2014 6:10a   Ben Williams
Yesterday I moved a customers single Sametime 8.0.2 server to a new 8.5.2.1 server. The planning and execution went well apart for pesky iNotes integration with STLinks. The customer isn’t huge so going Sametime 9 with SSC and DB2 really didn’t warrant increased consultancy and support costs and certainly not a Sametime Proxy. Anyway, the problem I had (which wasn’t happening with 8.0.2) was that in IE awareness wouldn’t appear. The buddy list would load and show users ad [read] Keywords: domino ibm inotes lotus notes sametime community db2 firefox integration java server

The importance of Java and Cognos with IBM Connections
Tue, Mar 25th 2014 12:10p   Ben Williams
During an install of Connections 4.5 I came across a problem when Configuring the IBMConnectionsMetricsAdmin role on Cognos which required me to disable anonymous access in the Cognos Configuration tool (Local Configuration -> Security -> Authentication -> Cognos to set Allow anonymous access? -> False) and save. On saving I was getting the following error in the client. I had previously applied 10.1.1 FP001 and believed something had happened during the upgrade.

Audio and video not woriking in a web browser due to LtpaToken “undefined”
Mon, Feb 17th 2014 9:10a   Ben Williams
When testing audio and video via a web browser of mobile phone I would see the following error in a browser when trying to use audio and video in a meeting. Using the thick client worked. Looking at the SIP Proxy Registrars SystemOut.log I saw the following exceptions.
