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 Business Process Manager - Missing the Bus
Fri, Nov 21st 2014 8:06a   Dave Hay
I've just built a single cell, two node three cluster IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.5 environment, against a remote DB2 ESE 10.1.0.3 server.So I was a little startled when, after starting the Deployment Environment, the Service Integration Bus (SIbus) failed to properly start.This is what I saw in one of my Cluster Member logs: -[21/11/14 13:17:03:719 GMT] 00000073 SibMessage I [BPM.ProcessServer.Bus:MECluster.000-BPM.ProcessServer.Bus] CWSIS1593I: The messaging engine, ME_UUID=E997A9EFA09498FC, IN [read] Keywords: ibm apple database db2 integration server

DB2 - Still 8 characters after all these years ...
Thu, Nov 20th 2014 2:45p   Dave Hay
So I'm more than familiar with systems that are "limited" to 8 characters, but I didn't expect DB2 to have the same limitation, leastways not in 2014 :-)This came up using DB2 Enterprise Server Edition 10.1.0.3 on AIX, but I've since recreated it using DB2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 as well.The problem occurs when I tried to create a DB2 instance against an Unix user ID that's 9 characters long.This is because I'm hosting 10 instances on one OS - db2inst1 through db2inst10.Therefore, [read] Keywords: ibm aix db2 enterprise linux red hat server

Following on from my earlier post: -NFS Mounting from Red Hat Enterprise Linux to Mac OS XI discovered that, if I want to mount a NFS share for read/write operations from Mac OS X, I needed to ensure that the NFS server is set up to "enforce" the UID and GID of the owner of the target directory.In my case, I was trying to write from Eclipse on the Mac to WebSphere Application Server on RHEL, where the WAS file-system ( /opt/IBM/WebSphere etc. ) is "owned" by the user wasadmin.Thus, I needed [read] Keywords: ibm apple application eclipse enterprise linux mac red hat server websphere
