CCM CR2 Upgrade: “The Deploy Application task has one or more blank passwords”|
Fri, Nov 11th 2016 6:20p Nico Meisenzahl
While updating an IBM Connections 5.5 environment to 5.5 CR2 I had an issue with the CCM (Connections Content Manager) upgrade scripts. The installation routine did not output any clear error message. After some research I found following output in the “fn-ce-update.log”: "/opt/IBM/Connections/FileNet/ContentEngine/tools/configure/configmgr_cl" execute -task deployapplication -profile CCM The Deploy Application task has one or … Continue reading "CCM CR2 Upgrade: ̶

Sat, Oct 29th 2016 2:01p Nico Meisenzahl
Last week I had an issue with a customer while using the lssam command in their DB2 10.5 HADR environment. After executing the command on one node, we got the following error message: (lsrsrc-api) 2610-413 While attempting to enumerate resources for this command an enumerate error was detected.

Using TLS 1.2 only configuration with IBM Connections 5.5|
Wed, Oct 26th 2016 11:41a Nico Meisenzahl
IBM released the “How to Force IBM Connections 5.5 CR1 to Use TLSv1.2” Technote about 4 months ago. Around this time, I started trying to get a full-blown Connections environment working with TLS 1.2 only configuration. Mainly because of an issue with the RTE widget (See Ben’s blog post for more information). Unfortunately some other stuff … Continue reading "Using TLS 1.2 only configuration with IBM Connections 5.5"

The pictures which are displayed within the URL preview of the Activity Stream are saved in the Homepage database. Unfortunately they will be stored using the absolute path to the file inside the Connections shared directory. For example ‘/mnt/cnxShared/common/urlPreview/shared/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000/3e5ecb33-6d18-44b0-8e29-1d86f0ce26cc’.

Search not working after adding a second node to a Connections 5.5 cluster|
Fri, Jun 17th 2016 1:14p Nico Meisenzahl
In the past weeks I had several Connections environments which had big problems with the search indexing. Only environments where I added a second node after the installation are affected. The environments where the Installation Manager setup installed both nodes on the same time are working as requested. The search index on the second node will not be updated. … Continue reading "Search not working after adding a second node to a Connections 5.5 cluster"

Using Connections Metrics with IE 11|
Thu, May 5th 2016 10:59a Nico Meisenzahl
When using Connections Metrics with IE 11 you have to wait some minutes until the graphs will displayed in your browser. This behaviour occurs because of a compatibility problem with Cognos and Internet Explorer. Cognos BI 10.2.2 itself supports IE 11 only in the compatibility mode which is not forced by the Connections Metrics App. This causes that the Cognos iFrame … Continue reading "Using Connections Metrics with IE 11"

Sun, Jan 31st 2016 2:18p Nico Meisenzahl
The default logging setting within TDISOL are configured to recreate the ibmdi.log every time sync_all_dns runs. Example: If your sync_all_dns.bat/sh runs every two hours you are able to look into the logs until the next run (two hours later). After this all output will be overridden. You are able to change this behaviour to get access to older … Continue reading "Customize logrotate within TDISOL"

With Connections 5.5 IBM provides a new feature called Type-ahead search. When you start typing in the search box, Connections will show matching content directly in a popup.

Using Mac Plugin with Kerberos enabled Connections Environment|
Tue, Dec 15th 2015 7:00a Nico Meisenzahl
Using the Connections Mac Plugin with an Kerberos enabled Connections environment, you need to customize your existing Kerberos configuration to get the plugin working without any problems. The Plugin is using the URL /files/serviceconfigs to get some environment information. Because the plugin cannot use Kerberos, WebSphere will send back the configured fallback URL (/files/serviceconfigs?noSPNEGO). This … Continue reading "Using Mac Plugin with Kerberos enabled Connections Environ
Underscore in Community LDAP groups|

When using LDAP groups in Connections Communities be aware of using group names with underscores. You won’t be able to find them in the “add member” type ahead search. This problem persists in Connections 4.5 and 5.0 environments using Domino LDAP. I didn’t try it with Active Directory yet.
