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 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. Googling came up wi [read] Keywords: connections ibm ldd lotus application centos java password security server vm websphere xml

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.

Sametime audio and video failing due to business cards
Tue, Feb 4th 2014 5:09a   Ben Williams
We all know that LDAP is the biggest threat to Sametime, don’t we? Are we all aware of how that impacts audio and video through business cards? Well, a customer logged a problem yesterday after audio and video failed on their 8.5.2.1 infrastructure. What made this more difficult to troubleshoot was the fact that last week and we had other problems relating to audio and video which was “taken out” after a network change the weekend prior.

IBM Sametime 9 Video Manager ignores host file
Thu, Jan 2nd 2014 6:11a   Ben Williams
During the build of an internal Sametime 9 environment I came across problems with video calls via a meeting room, point-to-point was fine. I was getting the error “The call was not completed due to a dialling error. AVKCS2200E: Failure response 403 received in response to invitation to CN=Ben Williams, O=collaborationben. Reason is: Unspecified Dial Failure.” I’ll explain how I have it set up.

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. Do not use 64 bit CentOS for the Community server I have never been ab [read] Keywords: admin domino ibm sametime application centos community java linux redhat server websphere

Sametime and the mystery surrounding Managed Settings
Fri, Sep 27th 2013 11:11a   Ben Williams
I have been working with a customer introducing Connections 4.0, Sametime Proxy and moving their current two Community servers away from native Domino to AD LDAP. We are now at the point where as we are looking at migrating the users from their current Community server to their new one. Normally DNS could be used to do this but since the authentication method is changing too then some further steps are required. To do this two approaches are required 1) the Sametime client needs to always pull t [read] Keywords: collaboration connections domino ibm policies sametime community desktop linkedin server xml
