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 …..

Interesting glitch with IBM Tivoli Access Manager 6.1.1 when creating Policy
Sun, Oct 19th 2014 1:05p   Dave Hay
This is what I was running: - /opt/PolicyDirector/sbin/mgrsslcfg -config -f no and this is what I was seeing: - Aborted (core dumped) which, I think you will agree, is less than helpful.

VMware - Where the X is my X ?
Sat, Oct 18th 2014 6:25a   Dave Hay
On a freshly minted VM of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 on VMware Fusion 7.0.0, I am trying to resolve a problem with a GUI application failing with a rather nice exception: - java: cairo-misc.c:380: _cairo_operator_bounded_by_source: Assertion `NOT_REACHED' failed. As part of my problem determination regime, I want to check whether the problem only occurs when tunnelling X11 from my Mac, via SSH, to the RHEL VM.

ACID - it's all about transactionality ...
Thu, Oct 16th 2014 9:05a   Dave Hay
Atomicity Atomicity requires that each transaction be "all or nothing": if one part of the transaction fails, the entire transaction fails, and the database state is left unchanged. An atomic system must guarantee atomicity in each and every situation, including power failures, errors, and crashes. To the outside world, a committed transaction appears (by its effects on the database) to be indivisible ("atomic"), and an aborted transaction does not happen.

It's been too long - IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business ( WebSEAL ) ... and openLDAP - what can possibly go wrong ?
Thu, Oct 16th 2014 4:05a   Dave Hay
So I haven't installed/used IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business ( WebSEAL ) properly since ~2008, although I've worked with a number of clients utilising this secure reverse proxy access management solution. Last night, I decided to rectify that, and install/configure TAMeB on a VM on my Mac. Me being me, I decided not to bother with documentation or too many pre-requisites, so I downloaded the software ( plus fixes, taking me to version 6.1.1.8 ), and try and configure it against ... ope [read] Keywords: ibm mac server tivoli vm

Looking at the integration between IIB and WSRR ( which runs on WAS 8.5.5 ), so have a nice new learning curve or two.

Using Jython to list ports within a WebSphere Application Server cell
Tue, Oct 14th 2014 9:25a   Dave Hay
To be 100% clear, I did NOT NOT NOT invent this script. The script came from a rather nice chap called Steve Robinson, who's posted it on his site here: - Jython script to list ports on a WebSphere Node. I've just happily used it with WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5.2, as part of a post-installation documentation exercise ( ensuring that the deliverable ties up with the up-front design ). Here we go: - /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01/bin/wsadmin.sh -lang jython -conntype NONE - [read] Keywords: ibm application server twitter websphere
