IBM Traveler 9.0.1.16 - A Note On Upgrading
Fri, Feb 17th 2017 6:34p   Ted Hardenburgh
So IBM Traveler 9.0.1.16 is now available. We've been waiting on it to upgrade our internal server that was on an older version, mostly due to the issue that Detlev posted about in December. That is "fixed" in this release, however my experience upgrading revealed that it wasn't so much fixed as the command that you need to issue to resolve the error was enabled for use. So, after upgrading Traveler from the .12 release, the server started up and watched as the Traveler db had its desig

IBM Verse On-Premises - some thoughts after using for two weeks
Tue, Jan 17th 2017 8:07p   Ted Hardenburgh
We installed IBM Verse On-Premises (VOP) the day it was released. See my previous post about the installation (simple). This post will cover my impressions after having used it for two weeks as my main access point to my company email. Basic Usage: Overall, I'm pretty pleased with the VOP 1.0 release. Reading and composing emails are easy and straightforward. When new mail arrives, the browser tab adds a red dot to the Verse icon to let me know there's something new. Messages render a

IBM Docs - Technote on Understanding the Save, Publish and Copy options
Fri, Jan 13th 2017 6:29p   Ted Hardenburgh
This came across my feed this morning and I think it's a useful piece of information to share with users of IBM Docs. They often ask the difference between the save, auto-save, publish, auto-publish and the copy options when working on documents. This technote from IBM gives a fairly succinct explanation of what the differences are. Understanding Save, Auto-save, Publish, Auto-publish, and Copy

IBM Connections Files Integration with iNotes
Fri, Jan 6th 2017 5:39p   Ted Hardenburgh
Now that Verse On-Premises 1.0 is out, I was taking a look at the integration with Connections Files. I've run into an issue with that that I'm still looking at, but as part of the diagnosis, I went back to look at the Connections Files integration with iNotes to try and get some better logging. During that inspection, I came across a different issue after we've upgraded our Connections instance to 5.5 and narrowed the TLS settings. The issue in iNotes was that the client was failing wth

Initial impressions on IBM Verse On-Premises 1.0
Fri, Dec 30th 2016 11:23p   Ted Hardenburgh
NOTE: This is a "first impression" post after working with VOP for a few hours. I didn't participate in the betas, so this is a fresh experience. So, as has been announced on the interwebs today, IBM Verse On-Premises 1.0 (VOP) was made available for download today. Part number: CNDG8ML We had some time today, so Chris Whisonant and I installed it and setup the integration with Connections. So Chris did the Domino side and I handled the Connections side. Here are my brief comment

IBM Connections 5.5 - Errors in SystemOut.log cleaning up HOMEPAGE database
Thu, Dec 22nd 2016 2:30p   Ted Hardenburgh
Working with a client on IBM Connections 5.5 CR1, they were noticing errors in the SystemOut.log of the InfraCluster around 11pm regularly. Lately, the errors were filling up 1GB of logs for a minute when it occurred. The "critical" piece of information was the line below: Error for batch element #1: A parent row cannot be deleted Page 10 of 67 because the relationship "HOMEPAGE.NR_READ_STATUS.FK_READ_STATUS_STR" restricts the deletion.. SQLCODE=-532, SQLSTATE=23504, DRIVER=4.19.49

IBM Connections Mail - destined for end of support
Mon, Nov 21st 2016 6:56p   Ted Hardenburgh
Over the weekend, I noticed a blog entry in my feed reader from the IBM Collaboration Solutions Support blog - End of Support Plans for the Connections Mail Plug-in - which starts of detailing that the IC Mail plugin for Connections 4.0 and 4.5 entered end of support this month. It also indicated EOS dates for the plugins for 5.0 The interesting/disturbing piece is related to future plans for IC Mail and Connections. The statement is that there are no plans for a version of the Mail plugin

File Downloads from Connections using SPNEGO
Thu, Nov 3rd 2016 8:48p   Ted Hardenburgh
With IBM Connections, there are options to utilize different SSO options. One of the eaiser is using Windows Integrated Authentication, better known as SPNEGO. This uses the AD domain and the user's Windows credentials to issue a ticket that can be used to authenticate users against other resources, such as an IBM Connections site. In some cases, this doesn't work like it should. One example is if the user gets an email with a link to download a file stored in Connections, but hasn't yet

Startup Beans and adding additional nodes in Connections
Tue, Jul 5th 2016 3:34p   Ted Hardenburgh
Last week, working with a customer that had setup a two-node install of Connections 5.5. Getting ready to go live and we noticed an issue in the SystemOut log of the InfraCluster when the server would start or when the search index task would run. CLFRW0454E: Unable to get indexing information about the current server, the index will not be built for this server. We had followed the instructions for adding the new node, and couldn't determine why we were seeing this issue. Opened a PMR an

IBM Connections 5.5 CR1 and Connections Mail - issue with calendar picker
Mon, Jun 20th 2016 7:44p   Ted Hardenburgh
After updating a test server with Connections 5.5 CR1, a customer noticed that the calendar picker in Activities would stay open after selecting a Due Date for an activity. This didn't happen in 5.5 or earlier versions. We opened a PMR with IBM and after some back and forth, according to IBM the issue is related to Connections Mail being enabled on the server. If you don't have Connections Mail enabled, there's no issue. A fix is in the works. I'm hoping that it will be an update availa

IBM Cnx 5.5 CR1 and WAS 8.5.5.8 update - something to remember
Fri, Jun 10th 2016 7:01p   Ted Hardenburgh
I was updating a Connections 5.5 environment to CR1 today and part of the process is updating WebSphere to 8.5.5.8. The installs all went very smoothly untill we went to verify the updates by launching the site. We saw the always generic "We are unable to process your request" message hitting the homepage. Off to the SystemOut.log! Looking at the logs, I saw a series of SSL Handshake errors and then it hit me - the Java policy files to handle the large SSL key size must have been overwri

IBM Docs - Mapping CIFS drives
Fri, Jun 3rd 2016 12:22p   Ted Hardenburgh
Working on a Docs 2.0 install and came across some strange issues when setting up the servers to map drives to the Windows file share. On some servers, the drives mapped as expected, while others didn't. No errors were logged in the Windows Event Viewer. For reference, the documentation from IBM we followed is here. To determine what was going on, I edited the cifsmount.bat to include some "logging" output to see if anything was happening we couldn't see when the task ran. Oddly enou

Known Issues after upgrading to Verse 9.4 for Android and Something That Worked For Me
Thu, May 26th 2016 12:02a   Ted Hardenburgh
This evening the following technote was published by IBM: Overview of known issues affecting users after upgrading to Verse 9.4 for Android After I upgraded I was having issues syncing. One thing I noticed was that if I went into the main Verse app the prompt to force a new sync would appear, but the sync never finished. Each time I opened the Verse app, I saw the same prompt. This morning I finally thought about deleting the local data and trying again. After doing this, I was promp

DB2 HADR configuration reminder
Wed, May 25th 2016 2:41p   Ted Hardenburgh
This one is a reminder for me more than anything: When setting up DB2 HADR, for IBM Connections, IBM Sametime, or anything, don't forget to make sure you've set the logging for the database before trying to configure the standby database. It's easy to do when you're working with the number of databases that Connections involves and that's what happened here. We somehow skipped over one of them, even though we were using the DB2 directory as a guide. We were trying to start the datab
