Administering SPNEGO within WebSphere Application Server: Tips on using Kerberos service principal names
   

I am adding this to my required reading list for projects where Kerberos and SPNEGO are used to deliver desktop Single Sign-On with WebSphere Application Server: -

Summary:  The Simple and Protected GSS-API Negotiation (SPNEGO) trust association interceptor (TAI) in IBM® WebSphere® Application Server V6.1 and in the SPNEGO Web Authentication feature in WebSphere Application Server V7.0 can be a powerful tool to achieve a seamless single sign-on environment between Microsoft® Windows® desktops and WebSphere-based servers. However, some users have trouble configuring service principal names when using SPNEGO. This article describes some best practices for configuring Microsoft Active Directory when using SPNEGO with WebSphere Application Server. (Updated for WebSphere Application Server Versions 6.1 and 7.0.)


This paragraph is especially useful: _

• Users with WebSphere Application Server Version 5.1.1.x and 6.0.x can obtain a custom service offering solution from IBM Software Services for WebSphere (ISSW). This solution comes with the source code, and you maintain the custom code yourself. To obtain more information about the ISSW SPNEGO TAI services offering for WebSphere Application Server V5.1.1 and V6.0, contact IBM Software Services for WebSphere.

• WebSphere Application Server Version 6.1 ships a TAI based upon the ISSW version mentioned above, which is a fully supported product code. However, you do not get the source code with this version.

• WebSphere Application Server V7.0 includes SPNEGO function via a new SPNEGO Web Authentication. (V7.0 still ships, but has deprecated, the SPNEGO TAI.)

as I'd previously assumed that WAS did not include native SPNEGO support until 7.0.0.9. In fact, we shipped SPNEGO in WAS 6.1, but have moved to a new SPNEGO Web Authentication module in v7.

All good stuff …..

Will add this to my existing presentation for WAS and SPNEGO ( as delivered at Social Connections II in Cardiff last year )

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 .....

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.

IBM BPM 8.5.5 - Process Center to Process Server - and vice versa - beware of the quotes
Mon, Aug 25th 2014 11:25p   Dave Hay
I'm just completing the build of an IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.5 environment, setting up Process Server on one VM to be available for online deployments from a Process Center on another VM. All was looking good until I tried to start the third cluster, AppCluster, which contains the Business Process Modelling Notation (BPNM) run-time. The start process stalled, and I found: - ...
