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:

modifywasplugin-ps1

Please note that using the script is at your own risk! You should carefully test the script! It might need some more error handling!

This script has four different operation modes:

  • ./modifyWasPlugin.ps1 -manual –> Manual selection process
  • ./modifyWasPlugin.ps1 -automatic –> Automatic execution process. Modify array “backupServerList” in this script.
  • ./modifyWasPlugin.ps1 -setbackup SERVER –> Remove SERVER from PrimaryServer definition and declare it as BackupServer
  • ./modifyWasPlugin.ps1 -list –> List all servers declared as PRIMARY

Preparation

Open the script and modify the variable “fileToUse” && “outputPath” to match your plugin-cfg.xml

#Path to the plugin-cfg.xml file
$filetoUse = "D:IBMWebSpherePluginswebserver1plugin-cfg.xml"

#Path to the Output XML file
$outputPath = "D:IBMWebSpherePluginswebserver1plugin-cfg.xml"

For the automatic mode, please fill the variable with the BackupServers:

[System.Array]$BackupServerList = "ic55Node02_CommonCluster_server2", "xxx", "yyy"

Then add the script to your Windows Task Scheduler and run it each 10 minutes or so…

Hope this helps someone out there 😉

SAML & IBM Connections 5.5 – not a dream team
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 7:45a   GIS Techblog
Hi all, last week we had to fight with an activation of SAML on a IC 5.5 CR3 environment. The setup was: IBM Connections 5.5 CR3 as test instance ADFS Server 3.0 (I know… it is only tested with ADFS 2.0 – but works with 3.0 too) We followed the instructions from the IBM Connections Knowledge Center. Smooth setup everything standard procedure. When testing this setup, the redirect to the IdP was initiated. After logging into the IdP the browser was redirected to IBM Connections ACS

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

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
