Connections, Sametime, Domino, AD, and SSO
Mike Burford    

The Connections project I’m currently working on is somewhat complex: Connections 4, Domino for mail, iNotes, Traveler, and Sametime Community server (not all on the same server), Sametime Standard, FileNet, and MS Active Directory 2008 for LDAP and authentication across the environment.

Being that I’m still a relative ‘newbie’ as far as WebSphere Application Server (WAS) is concerned, having only really used it for the setup and maintenance of the IBM/Lotus products sitting on top of it, I approached the SSO implementation with a degree of uncertainty and slight concern. We’re yet to implement SSO to include FileNet, that’s happening in the next week or two, so it was specifically for Connections, iNotes, Sametime awareness, Sametime Chat, and Sametime Meetings.

Sametime Standard is installed on a single WAS, Connections is on a separate server, and there are currently two Domino servers. So I generated the LTPA token in the Connections WAS, ensured that the LTPA domain was the same across all environments, and imported the token into Sametime Standard WAS and the Domino servers. And it worked, almost. Connections, iNotes, chat, awareness, and the Sametime Proxy server web chat client all worked when logging in with AD credentials. Sametime Meeting Server didn’t, and as soon as anyone logged into Meeting Server they were disconnected from everything else. The confusing aspect for me was that the Sametime Proxy and Sametime Meeting servers are both installed on the same WAS – with different IP addresses and DNS aliases so that they will play nicely together – so as the LTPA token is imported into WAS, I would have expected both the Proxy and Meeting servers to either work with SSO, or not.

What I’d missed was the Federated Repository Realm Name on the Sametime Standard WAS server. I’d changed it on the Connections server but Sametime was using the default realm name. This was what was breaking SSO for the Meeting Server and a quick rename and reboot sorted the problem.

I’m Cycling Across Australia
Fri, Jul 12th 2013 6:12a   Mike Burford
I’m offline a fair bit at the moment as I cycle from Broome to Perth to Sydney. 7,200 km in 64 days – including 9 rest days otherwise my legs would fall off which makes it a lot harder to ride. It’s a fundraiser for a literacy program for marginalised and/or abused women in Latin America (Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, and Panama). If you’re interested you can follow my progress via the Facebook page I set up at Mike’s Bike Across Australia. [read] Keywords: facebook

Mac OS X 10.8.3 update breaks Lotus Notes
Fri, Mar 22nd 2013 9:12a   Mike Burford
I had a couple of customers who updated their Macs to the 10.8.3 release and Lotus Notes “disappeared”. Sure enough, the icon had gone, the app wasn’t showing in Launchpad, and Spotlight couldn’t find it. A reinstall of Lotus Notes brought everything back, but the problem turned out to be the Apple Notes app (i.e. the note taking app). It looks like there’s a bit of crossover going on as you can either have one or the other, not both. I haven’t had time to d [read] Keywords: lotus notes apple mac

In July and August this year I’m cycling 7,200km across Australia for a fundraiser.  I only started road riding a year ago and like most people, don’t have the time during the week for long distance rides to build up my fitness.  In my search for training options I came across the Sufferfest videos.  These are intense, predominantly interval based workouts that you can download to your computer (or smartphone, tablet, etc) and use for indoor training.  I have an iMac and a cycle [read] Keywords: community facebook network

Warning for Connections 4.0, SQL, and Cognos setup
Mon, Oct 29th 2012 4:13p   Mike Burford
I hate to think how much time I’ve spent trying to work out how to get the Metrics functionality to work in Connections 4.0 with SQL databases.  I did the testing against DB2 and that was fine, there was documentation for that, but the documentation in the IBM Connections Wiki doesn’t include a section on SQL.  There is a recent update though, in the comments to the section on “Installing the database client for Cognos Transformer” there is a warning for the SQL Server [read] Keywords: connections ibm ldd lotus database db2 properties server sql wiki

Tue, Sep 25th 2012 4:59a   Mike Burford
Okay, so it’s not very functional in that it can only handle one user, very slowly, and I’m pretty confident it’s not a configuration supported by IBM, but it works!  I’ve got a production installation coming up within the next few days and as it’s been a long time since I last did a Connections install, and as the documentation warns right at the outset that the installation process has changed and the installation has to be followed exactly as per the documentati [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm ldd lotus sametime db2 integration network server vm websphere wiki

Solution for Quickr/FileNet/XenApp, Earthquakes and Stuff
Sun, Apr 24th 2011 5:11p   Mike Burford
It’s been a couple of months and a somewhat disruptive earthquake since I posted about the problem we had run into with Quickr not being supported in a Citrix/Xenapp environment. The customer’s offices were in the building next to the collapsed CTV building that was shown on TV around the world, so they are now spread around three offices around the city.  We lost our office as well so things have been a bit more challenging than normal, but we’re all up and running and the pr [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus notes quickr sametime traveler archive citrix email facebook integration interface office server twitter websphere websphere portal

Notes 8.5.x + XenApp 6 + Quickr + FileNet = no sale?
Thu, Feb 10th 2011 8:08p   Mike Burford
Last Friday was an exciting day, an opportunity turned into a potential sale when a customer emailed to say that they have decided to replace their Exchange and online document management environment for a Lotus software solution that includes Notes/Domino 8.5, Traveler, Sametime, and Quickr.  At the meeting on Tuesday to look at the scoping/design approach they stated that the planned environment is for everything to run on Win Svr 2008 R2, with the clients in XenApp 6, and Quickr connecting t [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus notes quickr sametime traveler citrix exchange exchange facebook integration microsoft outlook sharepoint twitter

Okay, so whilst I’m on a roll (and the baby’s asleep and nobody’s telling me to come in from the office): Bold 9700: Recently upgraded from my Curve 8310 and am loving the 9700.  It’s taking a bit of getting used to the new keypad but the screen is very impressive, WiFi is great, I reckon the trackpad is an improvement over the ball, and overall I think it’s a great device. Another new device is the Garmin GPS my father got me.  It’s a nuvi 1390 and although [read] Keywords: domino ibm ods archive email integration office server wifi wiki

I thought if I started off a blog whilst things were relatively quiet then I would be in the habit of keeping it up to date so it wouldn’t be too much of an effort when things got busy.  I was wrong.  I never seem to be able to find the time, or if I have got some time spare I try to use it to catch up on email, reading/learning, documentation, overdue stuff, or feeling guilty for not doing enough exercise!  Yet here are all these people online who not only manage to produce informative [read] Keywords: email facebook google linkedin twitter
