You are a Connections / WebSphere admin what do you care about Domino? I hear people ask – well actually I care a lot .. I use these products every day – I can’t do my job with out Domino / Verse / Notes and Sametime. After what can only be described as a lack of love for the Domino/Notes stack IBM have made a HUGE announcement in partnering with the development team at HCL Technologies to bring a new version to the beloved Domino stack. IBM signs strategic partnership with HCL

Fri, Aug 18th 2017 9:58a   Sharon Bellamy
There is a known issue with Connections 5 CR4 and all versions of Connections 5.5 when using Chrome version 60. It affects events not being displayed and errors relating to events in the UI. It has also been reported that comments can be affected also. After multiple BP’s and Customers reported this IBM Support have come up with a fix very quickly. The fix you need is IFLO92844 – currently it is only available from IBM support – not sure how long it will be until it is availabl

I am sure that lots of you have installed or started migrations to Connections 6 by now .. but I have found a couple of gotchas across the installs and updates that I have managed so far. I am listing them here for sanities sake as I know when we google an error – this blog will show up Connections 6 itself Generally this was a nice smooth install and all worked as it should in a clean 6 environment On testing a migration though I found issues when trying to migrate some of the DBs.

I am Running for Feel the Force Day …. My partner in crime Sam will be joining me again this year, along with Jonathan and Mandy will make up the #TeamRun4FTFD to raise funds.

Let’s get Stitch talking – Project #talkie pt 3
Mon, Jun 5th 2017 2:41p   Sharon Bellamy
So after building the kit and testing that it worked .. It was time to get creative .. there are some examples on what to do code wise on the AIY kit voice site First I had to go through the billing set up and processes. Even though the code is free, and the kit is free and they give you $300 worth of credit – you still have to set up billing. It was a pain as I already had a cloud dev account for some of the APIs I use on bit of my sites, but eventually I worked it out – I may have

Building the AIY – Project #talkie pt2
Sat, May 27th 2017 11:55p   Sharon Bellamy
Before I could attempt to get creative with the code examples – we first had to build the kit and make sure it worked with the things and code that was provided. I have used the images from the aiyprojects.withgoogle.com/voice page. They are great pictures and show step by step how to put things together, I may have forgotten to take step by step pics as we built it too. Prep the SD Card With the voice SD image we downloaded in pt1 – use etcher to flash the SD card and get it ready f

Migrating Connections DB from Oracle to DB2 part 3
Sat, May 27th 2017 8:48p   Sharon Bellamy
In part 3 of the series we will actually attempt to migrate the data. Migrating Connections DB from Oracle to DB2 In my experience the database migration is always most time consuming, so I always do the database first Use the text file of Commands that we created in part 2. Back up the exisitng Connections databases Drop database, create database, app grants (for homepage also initdata, and re org and run stats) CR update scripts Pre DB fixer script Run the DBT command Application specific s

Docs 2.0 CR2 – here we go again
Sat, May 27th 2017 8:05p   Sharon Bellamy
I am blogging this mainly so I remember how to solve this Big thanks to fellow ICS community member and all round great guy Robert Farstad for blogging this Again you can see a problem when patching Docs 2 to CR2 as it can’t find the FQDN of the hosts. The code has changed so it’s not possible to use the work around that we had previously. There is a slight twist to getting it to work which Rob has explained fabulously so thank you mate .. you saved me a lot of grief .. and even IBM
