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

So Docs 2 CR1 and iFix 1 is not playing ball
Mon, Nov 28th 2016 2:46p   Sharon Bellamy
I knew that some of our community had seen issues with applying Docs 2 CR1 and the accompanying iFix, so I purposely held off applying it. But low and behold on Saturday afternoon when I did attempted to install CR1 I had problems. The Docs and Viewer applications deployed without issues, but the Conversion server had these errors: WASX7303I: The following options are passed to the scripting environment and are available as arguments that are stored in the argv variable: "[remote_install_a_vers

In part 2 of this series we will cover preparing the system and the commands and files required. There is a fair bit of file creation to do and configuring of the Database Transfer Tool (DBT) Migrating Connections DB from Oracle to DB2 Step 3 – Prepare a system to recieve the data As I stated previously do not think you can recycle an existing Connections server if it has been installed with the DB type you are migrating away from as it causes issues with files particually. In my case I

For those of you that follow me on twitter, you will have noticed that I have posted a number of tweets relating to a fun project I am working on. I have been working with a customer to move them from Connections 5 to Connections 5.5 – Not a massive issue – EXCEPT they are currently using Oracle for the Connections DB and they can not upgrade it to the version required by 5.5 for quite some time, as most of their business systems require the version of Oracle currently running.
