IBM Docs – Migration from DB2 –> ORACLE
Fri, Jul 7th 2017 9:52a   GIS Techblog
IBM Docs – Migration from DB2 –> ORACLE Hi, within our last big project, we had the challenge to transfer the IBM Docs database from DB2 to ORACLE. Within this database comments and other document related data is stored. Officially there is no script available to perform this move using DBT (remove constraints / transfer / reapply constraints). We looked into the database and figured out how to perform this task using DBT – so we are not dependent on any other products. We m

IBM Connections – trouble adding additional nodes

IBM Connections – trouble adding additional nodes Hi all, we are currently involved in a project where we installed a 1 node IBM Connections 6 Cluster and later added a second node to the cell. So far so good… Everything that needs to be done after adding the second node is described here … Everything? Yes, mainly… but not in the mandatory details as I think! Missing custom properties and other settings might result in non-functional nodes. Especially not setting httpSess

Wikis content not accessible… Hi, it`s been quite a long time; many projects at the moment so that blogging needs to wait Last week we had a very interesting problem at one customer’s environment. When accessing a Wiki, the page was displayed blank – no content was available. Browsing to older versions of this wikis worked. The error in the log: Parsing error… Wikis content (the body) gets store in the filesystem as xml files. If you access a Wiki there is a XML parser

Automatic WebSphere plugin modification II – PowerShell for Windows
Thu, Dec 1st 2016 6:54p   GIS Techblog
Automatic WebSphere plugin modification II – PowerShell for Windows Hi, some months ago I published a shell script to automatically modify the Primary / BackupServer definition in a WebSphere plugin-cfg.xml file. As we have several Windows customers we decided to transfer this script to PowerShell so that it is also useable for a Windows Cluster installation. My colleague Jan Bruns did a great job implementing this script. It basically works the same way as the Linux script: modifywasplug

IBM Connections Docs – file preview not possible for some CCM pdf files Hi all, last week we had trouble in a customer environment using the file preview functionality for some pdf files (only those that were uploaded using CCM). Instead of a preview the message was displayed: At the same time we saw the following warning in the log: The mime-type was set to “image/pcl” instead of “application/pdf”… this mime-type is not supported by IBM Docs File viewer.

IBM Connections – How to switch to a custom global unique ID for users
Mon, Nov 7th 2016 8:59a   GIS Techblog
IBM Connections – How to switch to a custom global unique ID for users Hi, many of our todays support cases is related to non-working profiles in IBM Connections. If users change their name, switch from one to another location or simply get a new account their profile in IBM Connections might get inactivated because the hash key between LDAP and database has changed. There are three possible hash keys: UID: Often a bad choice, as this might change eMail: Also a bad choice GUID: Unique I

IBM Connections – add additional login attribute

IBM Connections – add additional login attribute Hi, last week I got the question if it is possible to use another login attribute for IBM Connections than uid, cn or email. Yes, this is possible and can be done very easy. It just needs some small adjustments (I assume that you already extended your LDAP schema and that the custom attribute is available in LDAP!!): 1. Open a wsadmin session ./wsadmin -lang jacl 2. Make a custom login attribute from LDAP known to the PersonAccount entity:

IBM Connections – Set read-only access to CCM libraries Hi, we are in the middle of several migrations to IBM Connections 5.5 and most of our customers come up with the question: What do I need CCM for if I can use nested folders in Files now? Many customers decide to manually migration CCM libraries to Files… This time a customer asked us if it is possible to set access to libraries to read-only so that no new files or folders are added to CCM. This is possible using the following

WebSphere TAI – Doing SSO the right way Hi all, one thing on my “to do blog posts” list is to write something about WebSphere TAI. A great way to introduce Single-Sign On between different systems. What is TAI? WebSphere TAI means “Trust Association Interceptor” WebSphere TAI is a well-known and proven security concept in WebSphere stable for a long time. It allows to set up custom advanced (pseudo) SSO scenarios. And the clue is it is extremely easy to code and use

The clever way to create IBM Connections users – GIS UserManager Hi, with this blog post I would like to promote a cool IBM Connections addon – “GIS Usermanager”. GIS UserManager is THE tool to create and maintain users for many IBM powered applications. There is no alternative solution available on market with such a great variety of features. Especially when planning external collaboration, you need to think about the creation of external users as IBM does not offer any

Why you should always use DBT for transferring IC databases…
Wed, Jul 27th 2016 3:37a   GIS Techblog
Why you should always use DBT for transferring IC databases... Hi, when talking about migrating IBM Connections from an old to the current release you have to think about migrating databases from the old to the new environment (in case you do a side-by-side migration – which is recommended if you migrate a production environment). You have two options to do such a migration: db2 backup on the old server and restore on the new server use the dbt.jar tool to transfer databases I always per
