Another great find (this tech note just came out today) of some improvements that have found their way into DAOS in 8.5.2.
I am really liking DAOS now (I always have, it’s more an increase of like-iness) . It is so much easier to sell a client on DAOS now as the feature has been around for a while and you can show and document the evolution of issues, their resolution and the current state of the product. Along with the DAOS estimator that kind of documentation is a powerful tool that can be used to overcome allot of rather irrational fears.
Many clients are – understandable – hesitant to do anything with attachments … it gets them all nervous. Once you can show them the advantages though it becomes easier – especially if you start talking of performance increases on the server and that even if they get nervous – DAOS is bound to each server individually and that makes them feel safer if some other server has the “full” (a misnomer, but effective) replica.
I like to introduce it on to servers that are used for archiving, back-up and redundancy. Back-up times are quicker, tapes are fewer, AV scans are MUCH quicker and the server (usually not the fasted one in the crowd) performs better. A great way to get a client comfortable and then have them implement it system wide.
IBM Connections – Michael Sampson’s State of Market Whitepaper
Wed, Nov 19th 2014 9:11a Victor Toal I have met Michael Sampson several times in person over the last few years, I have most of his books and actually suggest them as required reading to clients of mine, sometimes even buying them as gifts to make sure they actually get read. I don’t go as far as testing them on content and make them write essays, but I do discuss the books with them.
Michael just posted a VERY interesting new document that I suggest as an absolute required reading to anybody involved in “social in the [read] Keywords: collaboration
SPNEGO: Map SPNs and Create Combined Keytab Files In One Step
Thu, Nov 13th 2014 11:16a Victor Toal I have been wanting to blog about my SPNEGO install guide for a while but have been just a bit busy lately (my usual excuse). However, I just had to help a client setup SPNEGO for their IBM Connections environment so I decided the time for procrastination is over.
If you look at the IBM documentation, the process to create the SPNEGO keytab files and mapping the correct URLs and Fully Qualified Hostnames of servers to the AD account is rather onerous. IBM documentation will have you create sep [read] Keywords: connections
