IBM Connections CCM – FNRCD0002E – ERROR The database vendor cannot be determined from the JNDI data source
Tue, Feb 28th 2017 1:47p   Michael Urspringer
IBM Connections Content Manager (CCM) was no longer working for a customer although everything was ok a few days ago. While starting the CCMCluster the following error occurded in SystemOut.log: FNRCD0002E - ERROR The database vendor cannot be determined from the JNDI data source or is an unsupported type. Check the data source and verify the database connection. com.filenet.api.exception.EngineRuntimeException: FNRCD0002E: DB_BAD_DATABASE_VENDOR: The database vendor cannot be determined from

ICMP redirects no longer working
Sat, Feb 4th 2017 5:01p   Michael Urspringer
I do have a test LAN with its own IP range and I want to reach that test LAN from my productive LAN. For that, I have a software router based on pfSense, which has one virtual network interface in my production LAN and one in the test LAN. On my main router I added a static route for that. About two weeks ago, that setup suddenly did no longer work. At least from all Linux and Mac OS based machines, I was unable to reach IP addresses in the test LAN. From Windows machines this still did work.

Dockingstation für iPhone und Apple Watch
Sat, Jan 21st 2017 1:44p   Michael Urspringer
Immer mehr Geräte wollen auf dem Nachttisch Platz finden. Damit das Ganze nicht in einen unordentlichen Kabelsalat ausartet, habe ich nun diese Dockingstation für iPhone und Apple Watch auf dem Nachttisch stehen: Die Dockingstation kommt mit einem 48W-Netzteil und hat zusätzlich noch 2 USB-Anschlüsse um bis zu zwei weitere Geräte zu laden. Bei mir wird z.B. noch der Kindle aufgeladen (auch wenn das nur alle paar Wochen mal nötig ist …). Man kann die Watch zwar auch quer auf die H

Zusätzliches Netzteil für den Macbook Pro
Tue, Jan 17th 2017 6:10p   Michael Urspringer
Mein Netzteil für das Macbook Pro ist zuhause am Schreibtisch ein wenig verbaut und es ist ziemlich mühsam, jedesmal umzustecken, wenn ich das Macbook irgendwohin mitnehme. Daher musste ein zusätzliches Netzteil her.  Da ich keine Lust hatte, über 80 EUR für ein Original-Apple-Netzteil auszugeben, habe ich nach günstigeren Alternativen gesucht. Meine Wahl fiel auf das Salcar 60W Magsafe 2 T Form . Das Teil ist 145 gr. leicht und hat zusätzlich noch 2 USB-Ladeports mit 2 A. Damit kan

Some issues with Migration of IBM Connections 5.0 to 5.5

I had some new issues while migrating a customer environment from IBM Connections 5.0 to 5.5 (Oracle) and I would like to document them here: ORA-01722: invalid number during Homepage upgrade While running the script “homepage/oracle/upgrade-50CR4-55.sql” we got the following errors in the log file: Code block DECLARE * ERROR at line 1: ORA-01722: invalid number ORA-06512: at line 17 The reason for that was, that the sequence of the columns in the table “HOMPAGE.NR

Create tasks in “Remember The Milk” with Siri and the Apple Watch
Tue, Jan 10th 2017 6:47p   Michael Urspringer
I am a long year user of “Remember The Milk” (RTM) to manage all my tasks. Although they do still not have a native app on the iPhone, you are able to use Siri on the Apple Watch to automatically create a task in RTM without touching your iPhone. This is really something I am using very often throughout the day. Especially as Audi has killed Siri in my A3 if the iPhone is connected via Bluetooth to the car system. Siri on the watch is still working like a charm. Here is described

DBEAVER – Universal Database Manager
Wed, Jan 4th 2017 10:35p   Michael Urspringer
I normally used “Squirrel” as a free universal database client to connect to databases like DB2, Oracle etc. I just found a new tool called “DBeaver“, which is also free. It looks very nice and it will replace Squirrel for me now. The post DBEAVER – Universal Database Manager appeared first on Urs-o-Log.

Publishing PGP Keys in DNS
Sun, Nov 6th 2016 7:06p   Michael Urspringer
As I now have secured my DNS server with DNSSEC, I was able to publish my public  PGP key also via DNS. There are two different possibilities to do that: PKA (public key association) This puts a pointer where to obtain a key into a TXT record. At the same time that can be used to verify that a key belongs to a mail address. You can find more about that here (only in German). My DNS TXT record looks like that: michael._pka.urspringer.de TXT "v=pka1;fpr=7F3F203B94F85C3B7969BF58C5F5

Debian Jessie: Upgrade BIND9 to newer version
Sun, Nov 6th 2016 5:09p   Michael Urspringer
I wanted to use the OPENPGPKEY resource records on my DNS server which is not yet supported by BIND9 version x.x.. So I decided to upgrade to BIND9 9.11. and hee are the steps I had done to achieve that: Code block [crayon-581f63ef9d203662230658/] This will install the new version of BIND9 to “/usr/local/sbin”. So you can have installed the new version of BIND9 in parallel to the packaged version of Debian Jessie (which resides in “/usr/sbin”). So in case of pro

Technical Changes Behind the Scene …
Sat, Nov 5th 2016 4:53p   Michael Urspringer
Long time ago since I posted something here. The reason for that is, that I did some massive technical changes in the background. First, all my stuff is now running on a plain Linux virtual server (based on Debian Jessie) instead of a Linux server manged via Plesk. It was simply too much overhead and very hard to figure out where to do changes which will not be overwritten by Plesk later again. So adding new stuff or configuring existing things is much easier now. I also improved my internal m

IBM Connections: Find out which Communities does have a Sharepoint widget added
Thu, Jul 21st 2016 1:37p   Michael Urspringer
A customer would like to know which IBM Connections Communities have a Sharepoint widget added. The following SQL statement should give the UUID and the name of these Communities: select COMMUNITY_UUID,NAME from SNCOMM.COMMUNITY where COMMUNITY_UUID IN(select EXT_RESOURCE_ID from SNCOMM.LC_EXTENSIONS where dbms_lob.instr(EXT_VALUE_EXTENDED,utl_raw.cast_to_raw ('SharePointFiles'), 1,1)>0); The customer also wanted to send a mail to all creators of  these Communities. So he wanted to get

Use arrow keys with IBM Websphere wsadmin command on Linux
Wed, Jun 29th 2016 12:59p   Michael Urspringer
Other than in Windows you cannot use the arrow keys to correct a command line of recall your last command with IBM Websphere wsadmin command line in Linux. In order t get that working you need a little tool called “rlwrap“. Just install it with “yum -y install rlwrap” (for Redhat Linux; choose the install command valid for your distribution) and then you can run wsadmin with ” rlwrap ./wsadmin.sh”. I normally create a short command file with the following co

IBM HTTP Server: Better logrotate for HTTP server logs in Linux
Wed, Jun 29th 2016 12:16p   Michael Urspringer
To rotate your IBM HTTP Server logs (or Apache HTTP server logs) on a daily (or whatever) basis, you normally are using something like CommonLog "|/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/rotatelog -l /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/log/access_log.%Y.%m.%d 5M" common The disadvantage of that is, that the current log file name changes every day. So if you have e.g. a log viewer open to watch the log file, you need to adapt that file name  every day. A better solution for that is a tool called “cronolog“

IBM Connections: Batch Mode for accessing configuration files
Thu, Jun 16th 2016 6:07a   Michael Urspringer
For many Connections administration tasks you need to specify which Connections configuration file you want to use by running a WSADMIN command like e.g. execfile(“activitiesAdmin.py”). If you have more than one Connections node this command will ask you on which node you want the command to run and you need to answer with 1 or 2 etc. If you want to use these commands in a script, you need to specifiy a variable before running that command to suppress the manual interaction. So you

IBM Connections: Rich Content Widget stops working after migrating server
Wed, Jun 15th 2016 12:26p   Michael Urspringer
If you change the host name of your server or, as in my case, install as non-root user under Linux and therefore need to use non-standard ports like “8080” and “4430” in the URL for installing and then later switch that back to the standard port “80” and “443”, you might see the problem that your Rich Content Widget in Connections 5.5 no longer works. The reason for that could be that in the database there is a reference to the wrong hostname / po

IBM Connections: Migrated Communities do no longer display the Sharepoint Widget
Wed, Jun 15th 2016 12:06p   Michael Urspringer
If you configure the Sharepoint Widget for IBM Connections as it is described in the Infocenter, then Communities which are migrated from IBM Connections 4.5 to 5.5 no longer show the Sharepoint Widget if one was configured in 4.5. The reason is that in the documentation the widget ID has been renamed from “SharePointFiles” to “SharePoint Documents”. From my point of view, they just wrongly switched the text for  “defID” and “description”. So th

IBM Connections 5.5: Custom Community Themes based on the new Connections 5.5 (Hikary ) design
Thu, May 12th 2016 2:55p   Michael Urspringer
If you would like to create a custom theme fpr IBM COnnections 5.5 Communities according to the description in the Wiki, you need to keep the following in mind: The reference to the default theme files in the documentation is wrong. The correct jar file to use is “com.ibm.social.hikari.theme_*.jar” instead of “com.ibm.oneui3.styles_*.jar” otherwise you will not get the correct files for the Hikari theme but the old Gen4 theme files (IBM will correct the documentation h

IBM Connections 5.5: Error using the Rich Content app in a Community
Tue, May 3rd 2016 11:30a   Michael Urspringer
In a Connections environment, where you have changed the permissions so that only authenticated users can use Connections (by setting all “reader” roles in all Websphere applications to “All Authenticated in Application’s Realm”), you are no longer able to use the Rich Content app within a Community. If you add the app to the Community you see the message “The page could not be created due to an error”. To solve the issue, set the role “reader

This is a required update for IBM Connections 5.5, so please download and install this iFix from FixCentral.

SSL Certificate Issue with Ephox Textbox.io Editor in IBM Connections 5.5

Battery Backup for my Raspberry Pi
Thu, Feb 11th 2016 1:50p   Michael Urspringer
I just installed a battery backup for my Raspberry Pi to prevent file system corruption and data loss in case of a power failure. I choose the UPS Pico from PImodules. This module also has a Real Time clock on board which is something the Pi is natively missing. On the web page of PImodules there is a detailed description how to install and configure the module. First tests were successful. It recognizes a power loss and if the power does not restore within a few minutes it will automatically r

I tried to configure file download via HTTP server for IBM Connections Content Manager (CCM) as described in the IBM Connections 5.5 info center. However, changing the “fncs-sitePrefs.properties” file in the “FNCS_HOME/configure/explodedformat/fncs/WEB-INF/classes” directory and restarting Filenet and FNCS application did NOT work for me. I needed to copy the changed file manually also to /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/installedApps/connectionsCell/navi
