Being an IBM Champion is great and it does come with some benefits.
Today all IBM Champions are happy to announce that we can offer YOU a discount of $100 for IBM’s upcoming ICS event – IBM Connect in San Francisco
So what do you need to do – just reach out to an IBM Champion tell us why you want to go to Connect and what your expectations are and as if by magic we will give you the dscont code.
Now is a great time to register .. and I wish I was going to be there with you all

I recieved an email yesterday – just before I joined a live stream to watch the IBM Champions for ICS be announced.
On behalf of IBM, it is my great pleasure to recognize you as a returning IBM Champion in 2017. Congratulations!
I am so honoured to be amongst a great group of champions again. I have been an ICS IBM Champion since the program began in 2011.
Being an IBM Champion is all about being part of a great extended community, sharing knowledge, giving feed back and constructive c
So Docs 2 CR1 and iFix 1 is not playing ball|

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.

As blogged over on the BCC page .. a round up of Sutol with some extra Shaz related bits
Last week we were in the beautiful city of Prague for the 8th annual SUTOL Czech user group. It was a small affair with approx. 100 attendees – making it more like an extended family gathering, which actually worked really well. The sessions were well attended and there seems to be a chunk of Czech business that already have hybrid and cloud environments and are uses of IBM Connections.
