More on IBM HTTP Server and WAS Plugin passwords
   

Following on from my earlier blog posts here and here.

This is definitely a work-in-progress.

<Caveat Emptor>

*FIRST BACKUP YOUR KEY DATABASE ETC.*

Using gsk7cmd to check password expiration

C:IBMHTTPServerbin>gsk7cmd.bat -keydb -expiry -db IBMHTTPServerPluginsconfigwebserver1plugin-key.kdb -pw WebAS

Password expiry time: 26-Apr-2012 16:20:31

Using gsk7capicmd to check password expiration

C:IBMHTTPServerbin>gsk7capicmd.bat -keydb -expiry -db IBMHTTPServerPluginsconfigwebserver1plugin-key.kdb -pw WebAS

Validity:  Thursday, 26 April 2012 16:20:31 PM GMT Daylight Time

Using gsk7cmd to change password

C:IBMHTTPServerbin>gsk7cmd.bat -keydb -changepw -db IBMHTTPServerPluginsconfigwebserver1plugin-key.kdb -pw WebAS -new_pw Passw0rd -stash

Validating the change

C:IBMHTTPServerbin>gsk7capicmd.bat -keydb -expiry -db IBMHTTPServerPluginsconfigwebserver1plugin-key.kdb -pw Passw0rd

</Caveat>

Yes, and I am using Windows in this example, as I was working with a client who is using Windows rather than Unix for their web tier.

And you did back up your key database BEFORE you started ?

WebSphere Application Server - Recovering from failed transaction recovery
Fri, Sep 19th 2014 10:25a   Dave Hay
Thanks to Twitter for sharing: - IBM_AppServer Great blog on Recovering from failed transaction recovery. Very helpful! Take a look! http://t.co/KoxbxEqNr9 #wasserv 19/09/2014 17:10 When WebSphere Application Server is running a transaction, the transaction information is written to the tranlog directory to log1 & log2. The resources required for that transaction (database name, user, password, etc) are recorded in the partnerlog directory to it's log1 & log2.

IBM Integration Bus - The Fun Continues .... MQ reason code 2035 while trying to connect

So I now have IBM Integration Bus (IIB) 9.0.0.2 and the Toolkit running on my Red Hat Enterprise Linux VM, as per these most recent posts: - Installing IBM Integration Bus 9.0.0.2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 IBM Integration Bus 9.0.0.2 - Tooling Up I have the toolkit installed as user wasadmin because that's the user with which I installed a whole slew of other WebSphere products, using IBM Installation Manager.

IBM HTTP Server and SSL Signature Algorithms
Fri, Sep 19th 2014 4:05a   Dave Hay
So, whilst listening to this week's SecurityNow podcast, Episode 473 Google vs. SHA-1, I learned that Google plans to force the web to deprecate the SHA1 ( Secure Hash Algorithm ) from November 2014 even though Microsoft has a more moderate plan to move away from it by late 2017. Google wants us to move to SHA2, aka SHA224 / SHA256 / SHA512, even though their own websites are still using SHA1 at the moment: - Apparently, Google Chrome will start to provide visual feedback to end-users when the [read] Keywords: ibm apple google microsoft podcast security server wiki

IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.0.1 - PFS-0065 seen in context of Performance Data Warehouse
Thu, Sep 18th 2014 7:45a   Dave Hay
So, hot on the heels of my previous post: - IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.0.1 - Disabling Process Server to Performance Data Warehouse communication I was looking to replicate the same for Process Center. Strangely, when I looked at my Performance Data Warehouse (PDW) database for the Process Center environment, I did NOT have the TASKS table, merely LSW_TASK, and couldn't work out what SQL was actually used to create the missing table. Interestingly, whilst there are SQL scripts to create all of the BP [read] Keywords: admin ibm database db2 server sql

IBM BPM Advanced 8.5.0.1 - Disabling Process Server to Performance Data Warehouse communication
Thu, Sep 18th 2014 6:25a   Dave Hay
So, in order to disable the automatic publishing of events from Process Server to the Performance Data Warehouse database, I followed this IBM Technote: - Disabling tracking data generation for a Process Server or Process Center in IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) My requirement is to disable the use of PDW and instead use IBM Business Monitor ( aka BAM ) instead. In essence, one needs to toggle: - from: - true to: - false in 101Custom.xml ( which I used to override the stock 100Custom.xml ) [read] Keywords: ibm community database server xml

IBM Business Process Manager on Cloud service adds case handling and enhanced mobile UIs

New features built into IBM® Business Process Manager (IBM BPM) on Cloud include: • Basic case-management capabilities that enable knowledge workers to drive business outcomes by using a combination of structured workflows, ad-hoc tasks, and document processing. • New design capabilities for creating responsive user interfaces that can be designed once and run on any device form factor (phone, tablet, or desktop), to support mobile-ready process applications. • Service availability fo [read] Keywords: ibm apple applications desktop mobile

WebSphere Application Server Security configuration changes done with wsadmin are not activated immediately.
Wed, Sep 17th 2014 7:05a   Dave Hay
Saw this rather useful IBM Technote via Twitter: - WebSphere Application Server Security configuration changes done with wsadmin are not activated immediately. Problem(Abstract) Some administrative actions (like mapping administrative users or groups to security roles) might not get activated immediately and require a restart of the JVM. For example, you want to map the group called "wasadmins" to the Administrator role: AdminTask.mapGroupsToAdminRole('[-roleName administrator -accessids [ [read] Keywords: ibm application security server twitter websphere

IBM Integration Bus 9.0.0.2 - Tooling Up
Mon, Sep 15th 2014 4:05a   Dave Hay
My ongoing journey with IBM Integration Bus continues: - Installing IBM Integration Bus 9.0.0.2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 I've now got the Toolkit installed and running on RHEL63. Unlike WMQ and IIB, the Toolkit is installed using IBM Installation Manager. The first thing I had to do was to update IIM from 1.6.0 to 1.6.2+ as I previously had: - com.ibm.cic.agent_1.6.0.20120831_1216 I actually updated to 1.7.2: - com.ibm.cic.agent_1.7.2000.20140227_0303 ( thanks to BPM 8.5.5 disk 2 ( BP [read] Keywords: ibm eclipse enterprise integration linux profile red hat websphere

IBM BPM 8.5 - Groups and Caches
Wed, Sep 10th 2014 4:45a   Dave Hay
This follows an earlier post: - IBM BPM Standard 7.5.1.1 - Updating the Group Cache where I reported that, for BPM 7.5.1.1, it was an easy matter to reset the GroupCache in Process Admin, in order to have some WAS groups appear inside the User Management > Group Management view ( in order to allow me to assign WAS groups to BPM roles such as tw_admins and tw_authors ). So I've followed the same path for BPM Advanced 8.5.0.1 ( Process Center AND Process Server ) here. I created a bunch of new [read] Keywords: admin ibm server
