Documentum – NoSuchMethodError on setResourceBundle with D2-REST 16.4 on WebLogic

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

In the scope of an upgrade project, with some colleagues, we have been deploying some D2-REST applications on Kubernetes pods using WebLogic Server. As explained in a previous blog, we first tried to upgrade our D2-REST 4.x into 16.4 but faced a small error. I don’t know if you already used/deployed D2-REST but it seems to me that the deployment is always kinda chaotic. Sometimes you will need to apply some steps and then for…

Documentum – Cast trouble with D2-REST 16.5.x on WebLogic

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

In the scope of an upgrade project, with some colleagues, we have been deploying some D2-REST applications on Kubernetes pods using WebLogic Server. At the beginning, we started using D2-REST 16.4 and that was working properly (once the issue described here is fixed (and some others linked to FIPS 140-2, aso…)). After that, we tried to switch to higher versions (16.5.0 Pxx, 16.5.1 P00 or P04) but it stopped working with some error. We were…

SQL Server – Collecting last backup information in an AlwaysOn environment

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, Database management, SQL Server | No Comments

Introduction Sometimes you face interesting challenges with unusual environment. One of my customer needed a automated and flexible backup solution. Said like that nothing very complex you will say. But if I mention that some databases were 60TB big with more than 30 filegroups and around 600 database data files each and moreover synchronized in an AlwayOn availability group, it is not the same story and you can easily imagine that working with standard backup…

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

The first step in JBoss world is to understand these terms and the relationship between each other: Modules, Extensions, Subsystems, and Profiles. Let’s say that the definition of these terms is the same between Standalone and Domain mode.

Documentum – LDAP Config Object “certdb_location” has invalid value

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

In a previous blog, I talked about the automation of the LDAP/LDAPs creation. However, the first time that I applied these steps, I actually faced an issue and I couldn’t really get my head around it, at first. This will be a rather short post but I still wanted to share my thoughts because it might avoid you some headache. The issue is only linked to the SSL part of the setup so there is…

Documentum – Automatic/Silent creation of LDAP/LDAPs Server Config Objects

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

If you have been working with Documentum, then you probably already created/configured an LDAP/LDAPs Server Config Object (or several) so that your users can be globally managed in your organization. There are several compatible LDAP Servers so I will just take one (Sun One/Netscpae/iPlanet Directory Server). To create this LDAP/LDAPs Server Config Object, you probably used Documentum Administrator because it’s simple and quick to setup, however that’s not enough for automation. In this blog, I…

Documentum – Fixing issues with the D2 Privileged Client utility

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

In a previous blog, I talked about the D2 utility that can be used to automate the registration, approval and global management of the DFC Client IDs and Privileged Clients. The instructions I gave were the optimal (“normal”) ones… However, in reality, this utility or at least the shell script that is supposed to facilitate its execution is kinda bad. Therefore, if you really want to use it, then you first need to fix it….
