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 I will describe in this blog is linked to the HA installation. I faced this issue using the silent installation but I’m guessing it should also occurs using the GUI Installation.   So basically on the first Content Server, I installed a Global Registry and a few other docbases. For the creation…

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…

Documentum – Using DA with Self-Signed SSL Certificate

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

A few years ago, I was working on a Documentum project and one of the tasks was to setup all components in SSL. I already published a lot of blogs on this subject but there is one I wanted to do but never really took the time to publish it. In this blog, I will therefore talk about Documentum Administrator in SSL using a Self-Sign SSL Certificate. Recently, a colleague of mine had the same…

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

Here we are, already, at the end of my series of blogs about the “Change Password”. This blog will, as already mentioned in a previous one, talk about the Dsearch and xDB passwords. I could have created a lot more blogs in this series but I already presented the most important and most interesting ones so this blog will be the last one – at least for now ;).   Please note that below, I…

Documentum – Change password – 7 – DB – Schema Owner

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In this serie, I completed the passwords I wanted to talk about on the Content Server. Therefore in this blog, I will talk about the only Database Account that is relevant for Documentum: the Database Schema Owner. Since there are a few steps to be done on the Content Server, I’m just doing everything from there… In this blog, I will assume there is one Global Registry (GR_DOCBASE) and one normal Repository (DocBase1). Each docbase…
