Documentum – Unable to stop an IDS configured in SSL?

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

When working with the IDS, you might face some interesting behaviors as mentioned in the last blog I wrote for example. This one will focus on the SSL part of the IDS on the target side. On this blog, I will start with showing the content of our start/stop scripts and how it is working in non-SSL, then switching to SSL and try again. Therefore for this blog, I quickly installed a test IDS 7.3 using…

Documentum – Unable to configure IDS 7.3 for a docbase

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

In this blog, I will talk about an issue with the IDS 7.3 which is installed on a Content Server 7.3. The IDS is the Interactive Delivery Services. It is a product provided by OpenText that needs to be installed on a Content Server (for the “Source” part) and on a Target Server (for the “Target” part). The IDS can be used to publish content from a Documentum repository to a target machine for use…

Documentum – ActiveX error 12019 in D2-Config during export

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

Some months ago at a customer, we started the rollout of some security baselines on a new application (not yet productive). One of the changes was to enforce the use of TLSv1.2 on all our Documentum Clients like D2/D2-Config (4.5, 4.6, 4.7), DA (7.2, 7.3), aso… TLSv1.2 was already enabled before that but there was also a fallback to TLSv1.1 or 1.0. For Security reasons, at some point you will need to ensure that TLSv1.2…

Documentum – RCS 7.3 – Issue with projections?

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In the last two blogs I posted, I mentioned that I was working on silent installations with CS 7.3 (in HA). The “issue” (it’s more like a common mistake) I will describe in this blog is linked to the HA installation. You can face that using the silent or GUI installation, it doesn’t matter.   To replicate this behavior, it’s pretty simple: so basically on the first Content Server, I installed a Global Registry and a few…

Documentum – RCS 7.3 – dm_server_config cannot contain dash

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

As mentioned in this blog, I was recently installing a new 7.3 P05 environment. Actually, this environment was in HA and it was the first silent installation of a Remote Content Server for me. I already created a lot of blogs related to issues with the CS 7.3 but since this was my first RCS 7.3 installation, I was kind of expecting to face some issues… I wasn’t disappointed!   So let’s start with the…

Documentum – CS 7.3 – Issue with dmqdocbroker

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

Beginning of this month, I was building a new environment in 7.3 P05 (using silent installation but this isn’t relevant here) and I found a strange behaviour from the dmqdocbroker so I wanted to share that. You will see below an error message “Input has special characters …”. This is specific to the CS 7.3 for which we opened a SR with EMC/OTX some months ago (beginning of this year during the first CS 7.3…

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | 2 Comments

As you might now if you are following our blogs (see this one for example), we are using Alfresco Community Edition internally for some years now and we also have a few customers using it. Today, I will present you a small issue I faced with Alfresco which wasn’t able to display the content of a few – very specific – folders… As you will see below, it was actually not related to Alfresco but…

WebLogic – Cannot register for disconnect events on local server

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

When working with WebLogic, there will probably be a moment when you will ask yourself: damn, what is wrong? Nowadays, software are so complex that it is kind of easy to introduce bugs/non-wanted behaviors in them… In this blog, I will present a small thing that just blew my mind when I faced it: I had a fully working WLS on which I executed a WLST script in order to configure the SSL Ciphers for…

Encryption of shell scripts

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In this blog, I will talk about the encryption of files and in particular the encryption of a shell script because that was my use case. Before starting, some people may say/think that you shouldn’t encrypt any scripts and I globally agree with that BUT I still think that there might be some exceptions. I will not debate this further but I found the encryption subject very interesting so I thought I would write a…

Documentum – Unable to install xCP 2.3 on a CS 7.3

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

Beginning of this year, we were doing our first silent installations of the new Documentum stack. I already created a few blogs to talk about some issues with CS 7.3 and xPlore 1.6. This time, I will talk about xCP 2.3 and in particular the installation on a CS 7.3. The Patch of xCP as well as the patch for the CS 7.3 doesn’t matter since all versions are affected. Please just note that the…
