Mon, Aug 8th 2016 11:02a   Kenio Carvalho
Due to security vulnerabilities in the Apache Axis V1.x libraries, IBM is removing the Axis JAR file from IBM WebSphere Portal 8.5 effective with Cumulative Fix 12. There is no product code that uses this library, but it has been on the classpath since the initial release.

How to programmatically delete a particular email in all mail files

This can be done using an agent that is run by an ID that has access and delete rights to all the mail files on the server. The email will have the same Universal ID(UNID) in all of the mail files.

Tue, Mar 8th 2016 7:11p   Kenio Carvalho
“There are a number of aspects to consider when choosing between the traditional WebSphere Application Server (WAS full profile, or WAS Classic) and WAS Liberty for deployment. If you have a hard requirement which is only available on one or the other (such as a particular API) then the choice is easy, but as the Liberty function has grown, it has become more common to need to weigh the pros and cons of each more closely; to consider topology choices, operational capabilities and security

Unable to connect Java console to Domino server after applying JVM updater SR16FP20
Fri, Feb 19th 2016 12:29p   Kenio Carvalho
This behavior is related to an intentional change in Java6SR16FP20 to tighten security by disabling the MD5 algorithm by default in latest JVM release. The Domino Server Controller, however, currently requires MD5. IBM is investigating a solution to leverage a more secure cipher for the Domino Server Controller (a.k.a. Domino Java Console). This issue is tracked as SPR# RSSNA6UU79. Read the complete IBM Technote here

Mon, Jan 11th 2016 7:29a   Kenio Carvalho
In this post i will describe the steps i follow to backup my IBM Connections 5.0.   The TSM Server and Connections Serve are using Linux.  Install TSM Client on the IBM Connections Server.

Effective way to clean up your IBM Portal Server on linux and save disk space.
Thu, Jan 7th 2016 5:32p   Kenio Carvalho
Today i receive a disk full alarm from my portal server. As usual i delete some logs and files left behind, but for this time this does not solve the issue. Search for big files or what folder is bigger on linux is hard using du. Googling i found a nice toll and what i found was a big surprise. I setup NCDU (NCurses Disk Usage) is a curses-based version of the well-known “du”, and provides a fast way to see what directories are using your disk space. The setup is easy: 1 - yum instal
