IBM Connections - Unpacking IBM Installation Manager on AIX
   

I "heard' this on the IBM Connections Community Chat on Skype last week, and thought it worthy of sharing here.

One of the participants was seeing this error: -

"The insall executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library"

when running install.sh.

After checking pre-requsities, disk space etc. our colleague realised that they'd fallen into an tar on AIX trap.

To quote from the Connections 3.0.1 documentation: -

(AIX only) If you are downloading IBM Installation Manager, the TAR program available by default with AIX does not handle path lengths longer than 100 characters. To overcome this restriction, use the GNU file archiving program instead. This program is an open source package that IBM distributes through the AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications at the IBM AIX Toolbox website. Download and install the GNU-compatible TAR package. You do not need to install the RPM Package Manager because it is provided with AIX.
After you have installed the GNU-compatible TAR program, change to the directory where you downloaded the IBM Connections TAR file, and enter the following command to extract the files from it:

gtar -xvf <Lotus_Connections_wizard>_aix.tar


This is something that I probably knew from my time in the IBM Innovation Centre in Hursley, but it was a good "reminder".

One for the kit bag …..

IBM HTTP Server - CTGSK3024W Invalid value for parameter from GSK
Mon, Sep 1st 2014 6:05a   Dave Hay
I hit a wee problem with the Global Security Toolkit (GSK) when creating a certificate for IBM HTTP Server 8.5.5.2 This is the command that I was running: - /opt/ibm/HTTPServer/bin/gskcapicmd -cert -create -db /opt/ibm/HTTPServer/ssl/keystore.kdb -pw passw0rd -size 2048 -dn "bam8012.uk.ibm.com,o=ibm,c=us" -label "bam8012.uk.ibm.com" -default_cert yes which resulted in: - CTGSK3024W Invalid value for parameter "-dn" (bam8012.uk.ibm.com,o=ibm,c=us).

Notes to self - Setting up DB2 Client connectivity
Fri, Aug 29th 2014 8:05a   Dave Hay
It's been ~10 years since I last did this ( DB2 on Unix to DB2 on z/OS or OS/400 ), but I now have a requirement to deliver a DB2 client for WebSphere MQ interaction ( MQ will use ODBC rather than JDBC ). I knocked this up using a pair of VMs on my Macbook .....

A Reminder - Which Cluster Does BAM > BPM need ?
Wed, Aug 27th 2014 10:25a   Dave Hay
WebSphere Business Monitor event emitter factory WebSphere® Business Monitor requires an event emitter factory to generate and send events. Use the wbmConfigureEventEmitterFactory command to install and configure the event emitter factory on a server or cluster. You must already have a common event infrastructure (CEI event service). (Otherwise, run the wbmDeployCEIEventService command to create one.) In the four-cluster topology, the event emitter factory is installed on the support cluster.

IBM Business Monitor and DB2 users, not instances
Tue, Aug 26th 2014 10:25a   Dave Hay
So I have been wrestling with IBM Business Monitor and, more specifically, Cognos, which was failing to start up with errors such as DPR-DPR-1035, DPR-CMI-4007, CM-CFG-5063 and CM-CFG-5137. Various Technotes etc. suggested that the problem might be with the DB2 database. I did some digging: - db2 list tables for schema db2user2 db2 connect to cognoscs Database Connection Information Database server = DB2/AIX64 10.1.0 SQL authorization ID = DB2INST3 Local database alias = COGN [read] Keywords: ibm database db2 server sql
