F5 BIG-IP - More learning, more tinkering, more blogging
Fri, Jun 24th 2016 9:34a   Dave Hay
I'm continuing to learn more about the F5, in my quest to really understand how it all works, in the context of solving a tricksy little SSL handshake problem between an LTM and an IBM HTTP Server box.Here's a few commands that I've used: -tmsh show /ltm node----------------------------------------------Ltm::Node: bpm856.uk.ibm.com (192.168.153.200)----------------------------------------------Status Availability : unknown State : enabled Reason : Node add

WebSphere Plugin and the Case of the GSK_ERROR_BAD_KEYFILE_PASSWORD
Wed, Jun 22nd 2016 4:01p   Dave Hay
We've seen a few instances , where the WebSphere Plugin fails to communicate, via SSL, with WAS.This manifests itself as Error 500 / HTTP500 when accessing WAS via IHS, using hostname OR service name.Long story short, it looks like the Plugin SSL configuration files are getting "borked" by something.The plugin log shows this: -[22/Jun/2016:13:14:40.16292] 00d3008c 00000001 - ERROR: lib_security: logSSLError: str_security (gsk error 408): GSK_ERROR_BAD_KEYFILE_PASSWORD[22/Jun/2016:13:14:40.16

F5 Load Balancing - My first few forays
Wed, Jun 22nd 2016 1:29a   Dave Hay
I'm currently working on a situation whereby HTTPS load-balancing is inconsistently not working against IBM HTTP Server 8.5.5.To help me help the client's network team debug this, I've been tinkering with a F5 Local Traffic Manager (LTM) using VMware Fusion on my Mac.I found a slew of excellent articles on the F5 site including: -Load Balancing 101: Nuts and BoltsLoad balancing got its start in the form of network-based load balancing hardware. It is the essential foundation on which Applicat

IBM BPM - Process Center and Unit Test Environment Together
Mon, Jun 20th 2016 8:17a   Dave Hay
This article from 2014: -Creating a stand-alone Process Center profile in IBM BPM, Part 1: Configure a profile for IBM Business Process Manager V8.5 on Windows platformsA stand-alone Process Center profile for IBM® Business Process Manager (BPM) is useful for situations where memory and disk space are limited.

Achieve your API strategy with IBM API Connect
Wed, Jun 15th 2016 1:54a   Dave Hay
This from a former colleague of mine, Carlo Marcoli: -To thrive in the API economy, you need to strategize your API approach and create, run, manage, and secure your APIs. With this dedicated focus on APIs, your company can share data and services in an easy-to-consume format. It can also create an ecosystem of partners and third parties that is much greater than the ecosystem you reach by using traditional channels. An effective API strategy treats an API as a business product with a well ident

Problems installing IBM Integration Designer - I *MUST* read my own blog
Mon, Jun 6th 2016 4:07p   Dave Hay
