Fri, Nov 28th 2014 11:46a   Dave Hay
One of my colleagues asked for some help with WAS 8.5.0 on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 VM .... running on IBM SoftLayer.This is my first time on the SoftLayer cloud, so it's been a blast.One thing that caught me out was the requirement for the SoftLayer VPN client. Whilst my colleague kindly linked me to an ArrayNetworks VPN client ( ArrayNetworksL3VPN_MAC ), this didn't seem to want to work ( connect ) from my Mac ( OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite ).Thankfully, the SoftLayer website came to my aid: [read] Keywords: admin agent ibm application applications eclipse enterprise java linux mac profile properties red hat redhat server vm websphere xml

IBM HTTP Server - maintenance mode
Thu, Nov 27th 2014 3:05a   Dave Hay
One of my colleagues was looking for some intel. on this earlier this week.The requirement is to have IBM HTTP Server (IHS) display a different banner page when WebSphere Application Server is placed into maintenance mode e.g. when the WAS cell is being shut down, recycled, upgraded etc.After a few iterations, and a read of this: -Configuring a temporary 'Site Down For Maintenance' page in IBM HTTP Serverthis is what I configured.In essence, we place a single file in the IHS DocumentRoot: -Doc [read] Keywords: connections ibm apple application server websphere

Help - The Proxy Ate My Process Designer
Sat, Nov 22nd 2014 12:25p   Dave Hay
This is a problem that I recently saw with a client, and was able to reproduce, and more importantly, fix on my own environment.But first some background, one of the IBM BPM's major features is the Eclipse-based development, Process Designer. This interacts directly with Process Center, and provides a collaborative rich-client integrated development environment.Unlike other development tools, Process Designer can NOT function with a constant connection to the Process Center run-time, and this c [read] Keywords: admin ibm apple application development eclipse java microsoft network password server virus websphere widget widgets workspace

Lessons Learned - WebSphere MQ, Clustering and Message Driven Beans
Sat, Nov 22nd 2014 3:05a   Dave Hay
ContextThe requirement is to create a clustered WebSphere MQ infrastructure, and then send messages to an application, known as a Message Driven Bean, deployed onto WebSphere Application Server.The next step will be to create a more sophisticated application that can send and receive messages to/from WebSphere MQ, most likely leveraging the JavaEE Service Component Architecture.In this scenario, I will create a pair of WMQ Queue Managers, each on a separate OS ( Red Hat VM ), one representing th [read] Keywords: ibm notes application enterprise integration java password red hat security server vm websphere xml

DB2 Buffer Pools - Automagically tuning
Fri, Nov 21st 2014 2:45p   Dave Hay
So I picked this nugget of wisdom up this week.One of my most excellent DB2 SME colleagues pointed out the wonderful db2top utility, specifically in the context of monitoring Buffer Pools.You see, ever since I learned to install IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM), I've been creating a Buffer Pool, bp32k, as required by the documentation and, more importantly, the product: -db2 create bufferpool BP32K size 8000 pagesize 32 KThe DB2 SME, let's call him ...
