Sametime 9 and CentOS
Thu, Jan 2nd 2014 5:09a Ben Williams I like to use CentOS in the lab to install all IBM software to avoid licensing costs and Windows when possible. CentOS has always had it’s challenges and I have blogged a few times about additional libraries required to get software working. I use the basic server install which is pretty minimal but that’s what you should be using, right?
With Sametime 9 I have noticed the following gotchas you should be aware of.

Leavers showing as off line through the Sametime Gateway
Thu, Aug 8th 2013 6:18a Ben Williams An internal user described a problem where as a leaver was showing as on line to IBM colleagues via their Sametime client, further more chats sent to the leaver was being received by the leaver’s manager. Our Gateway is federated with IBM’s so I can chat with them. I was a bit sceptical at first but after reproducing it I took a peek.
The manager had added the leaver’s email address to their person document so that email sent to the leaver was routed to them. Running a query fo [read] Keywords: ibm
IBM Connections SSO not working with Metrics
Thu, Aug 1st 2013 6:17a Ben Williams The one problem I had out the back of the Metrics install which was post-Connections 4.0 was the when users clicked on the Metrics tab they were not signed into Metrics automatically. Users were faced with the following screen.

Populating Profiles – long search filter error
Wed, Jul 17th 2013 9:15a Ben Williams A customer wanted to use a series of nested groups to populate Profiles. The theory is that the parent group has a number of child groups which are controlled by various location specific administrators.
Initially I hoped to be able to achieve this by using a special query (LDAP_MATCHING_RULE_IN_CHAIN) which would walk to the root and thus include all members of the nested groups.
“(&(objectClass=user)(member:1.2.840.1135184.108.40.2061:(=CN=IBM Connections Users,DC=acme,DC=com)))”

Cannot share folders with a community
Mon, Jul 15th 2013 10:14a Ben Williams A customer notified me of a problem a user faced when trying to share a folder to a community. Quickly we found the problem was with the community and not the folder as the folder could be shared with other communities and various folders could not be shared with this specific community. This was a community that was created in Connections 3.0.1.
The user saw different errors in the web browser compared with the Windows connector.
