Alfresco – Unable to move/rename a file/folder using AOS

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

When playing with the AOS implementation, a colleague of mine faced an interesting issue where he just wasn’t able to move or rename any files or folders. The creation and deletion were working properly but he was unable to move or rename anything when using a Network Location or a Network Drive. This environment was freshly installed with a front-end (Apache HTTPD) setup in SSL so we worked together to find out what was the…

WebLogic – SSO/Atn/Atz – 403 Forbidden, another issue

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

Earlier today, I posted another blog with almost the same title but the similarities stop here. The thing is that when you access your application, there aren’t much error codes possible so if there is an issue, it’s often the same generic message that is being displayed on the browser. To get some background on the issue that I will present below, we are usually setting up the WebLogic Server, enabling the SSO on the…

WebLogic – SSO/Atn/Atz – 403 Forbidden, a first issue

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

In a previous blog, I explained how it was possible to enable the SSO/Atn/Atz (SSO/Authentication/Authorization) debug logs in order to troubleshoot an issue. In this blog, I will show the logs generated by an issue that I had to deal with last month at one of our customers. This issue will probably not occur very often but it is a pretty funny one so I wanted to share it! So the issue I will talk…

How to rename an existing Fusion Middleware WebLogic Domain

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

Some times it happens that we need to rename an existing fusion Middleware WebLogic domain. I was asked to do such on a Fusion Middleware Reports & Forms environment. I took some time to check how this can be done and did some testing to confirm it works as expected. The difficulty is not the WebLogic Domain itself as a WebLogic domain can be created quickly but it is time consuming if the complete configuration…

WebLogic – SSO/Atn/Atz – How to enable debug logs

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

Let’s say that you have an application deployed on a WebLogic Server and that the SSO/Atn/Atz (SSO/Authentication/Authorization) isn’t working or throwing a 4xx error code like ‘401 – Unauthorized’ or ‘403 – Forbidden’. How would you be able to know what is happening and how to solve it? Well the answer is always the same: enable debug logs, it is just a matter or choosing the right scope and choosing a way to do it…

Documentum – DFC traces setup & investigation

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

When working with Documentum, you will most probably have to enable the DFC traces one day or another and then work with these traces to analyze them. The purpose of this blog is simply to show how the DFC traces can be enabled, which tools can be used to quickly process them and what are the limitations of such things. Enabling the DFC traces can be done very easily by updating the dfc.properties file of…

Documentum xPlore: Tuning of JVM for high throughput and low CPU usage

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

Sometimes you have java processes or even jboss servers using a lot of CPU. In my example I had an xPlore dsearch server using like 98% of the cpu. When using jconsole and jvisualvm I figured out the garbage collector was using 50 to 60% of the cpu time. This was because the server was indexing and accessing the internal DB very often. Hence a lot of objects were created, the JVM was not correctly…

Documentum xPlore: Several ways to start an Index Agent

By | Application integration & Middleware | 2 Comments

In order to start index agents, you have several ways, depending on how you need to start them. 1. Use the documentum job dm_FTIndexAgentBoot. If you setup start_index_agents=T in the server.ini, the job will be called when the docbases are started. 2. Use the web interface: Login to http://server:9200/IndexAgent/ with docbase credentials and select “Start in normal mode” 3. Login to DA and go to Indexing Management -> Index Agents and Index Servers Right click…

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…
