Alfresco DevCon 2018 – Day 2 – Big files, Solr Sharding and Minecraft, again!

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

Today is the second day of the Alfresco DevCon 2018 and therefore yes, it is already over, unfortunately. In this blog, I will be continuing my previous one with sessions I attended on the afternoon of the day-1 as well as day-2. There were too many interesting sessions and I don’t really have the time to talk about all of them… But if you are interested, all the sessions were recorded (as always) so wait…

Alfresco DevCon 2018 – Day 1 – ADF, ADF and… ADF!

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

Here we are, the Alfresco DevCon 2018 day-1 is over (well except for the social party)! It’s been already 2 years I attended my last Alfresco event (BeeCon 2016, first of its name (organized by the Order of the Bee)) because I wasn’t able to attend the second BeeCon (2017) since it happened on the exact dates of our internal dbi xChange event. Yesterday was the DevCon 2018 day-0 with the Hack-a-thon, the full day…

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…

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 – 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…
