WebLogic – SSO/Atn/Atz – Infinite loop

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

This blog will be the last of my series around the WebLogic SSO (how to enable logs, 403 N°1, 403 N°2) which I started some weeks ago. Several months ago on a newly built High Availability Environment (2 WebLogic Servers behind a Load Balancer), an application team was deploying their D2 Client as always. After the deployment, it appeared to the tester that the Single Sign-On was not working when using the SSO URL through…

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…

Kerberos SSO with Liferay 6.1 v2

By | Application integration & Middleware | One Comment

A little bit less than one year ago, I wrote a blog about how to setup the Kerberos SSO on Liferay using Apache httpd as a front-end, Tomcat as a back-end and with auth_mod_kerb and mod_jk to transfer the information between these two components. Unfortunately, after some months, it seems that something changed either on the Liferay side or in the Apache side because the exact same configuration wasn’t working anymore. I solved this issue…

Kerberos configuration for DFS 6.7 SP1

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In my last post, I explained how to configure Kerberos for a CS 6.7 SP1. Unfortunately if you only configure the Content Server, it will almost be useless… If you want this configuration to be useful, then you will also have to configure the Kerberos SSO for the Documentum Foundation Services (DFS). That’s why in this blog post I will describe step by step what need to be done for that purpose. So what are…

Kerberos configuration for a CS 6.7 SP1

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In a previous post, I shared some tips to configure the Kerberos SSO with Documentum D2 3.1 SP1. Since that day, I worked on different projects to also setup the Kerberos SSO on some other components of Documentum. In this post I will try to explain in detail what need to be done to configure the Kerberos SSO for the Content Server. Actually it’s not that hard to do it but you may face some…

Configure a Kerberos Client and Alfresco as a Kerberized application

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In the previous blog, I described How to install and manage a Kerberos Server but that’s useless if there are no clients and if no application have been kerberized! That’s why in this blog I will explain in the first part how to install a kerberos client in linux. The second part will be dedicated to the configuration of a browser to use Kerberos tickets and the last part will explain how to configure a…

Kerberos SSO with Documentum D2 3.1 SP1

By | Application integration & Middleware | 2 Comments

Last week, when I was working on how to setup the Kerberos SSO for D2 3.1 SP1, I faced some issues due to a documentation that doesn’t seem to be up to date… In fact, our version is D2 3.1 SP1 and there is no specific documentation for SP1. In consequence, I read the D2 3.1 Installation Guide and the D2 4.0 Installation Guide. The first time I read the D2 3.1 documentation, I found…
