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

IBM Connections dbWizard issue - it’s all about the bits
Tue, Jan 12th 2016 12:58p   Ted Hardenburgh
Started a Connections 5.5 deployment for a customer last week. Things are going well, but when we got to the database Wizard, the wizard wan't cooperating. We couldn't choose the DB2 instance - which normally auto-populated anyway. We basically could bounce back between the Create/Update/Delete menu and the Database type and couldn't move forward. We were able to create databases manually, but with other deployments coming up we wanted to make sure it was working. After looking around t
