Documentum story – Authentication failed for Installation Owner with the correct password

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

When installing a new Remote Content Server (High Availability), everything was going according to the plan until we try to login to DA using this new CS: the login using the Installation Owner (dmadmin) failed… Same result from dqMan or any other third party tools and only the iapi or idql sessions on the Content Server itself were still working because of the local trust. When something strange is happening regarding the authentication of the…

Documentum story – Download failed with ‘Exceeded stated content-length of 63000 bytes’

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

At one of our customer, we were in the middle of a migration process of some docbases from 6.7 to 7.2. A few days after the migration, we started seeing some failures/errors during simple download of documents from D2 4.5. The migration has been done using the EMC EMA migration tool by some EMC colleagues. The strange thing here is that these download failures only applied to a few documents, far from the majority and…

Documentum story – Lockbox file is newer than the active Lockbox library

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

A few weeks ago at a customer, I was installing a completely new sandbox environment for one of our Application Teams. On this environment, we used a new version stack with the most recent patch set (at that time): CS 7.2 P16, D2 4.6 P05, aso… A new patch level means a lot of “fun” trying to install and execute the updated installers of Documentum/BPM/D2… And of course a lot of new bugs ;). In…

Documentum story – Restrict the number of jpeg renditions

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

As already explained in this blog, we had to remove the PDF renditions for a customer to only keep the jpeg renditions on the ADTS side because the PDF was generated by another third-party tool. If you take a look at the dmr_content items attached to a specific document (parent_id), you will understand that there is by default only one PDF content while there might be a lot more jpeg renditions. Why? The answer to…

Momentum16 – Day 3 – Documentum with Docker

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

The last day of the Momentum 16 in Barcelona has been a short one… Indeed there were presentations only in the morning and the event ended at 13:00 with the farewell lunch. So this will be a short blog too!   So first thing in the morning, I had the opportunity to attend a very good presentation about containerizing your On-Premise environment with Docker. This was actually the main purpose of this third day for…

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

So today is the second day of the Momentum 16 in Barcelona and as expected, this day contained many more technical presentations and discussions than the first day.

Momentum16 – Day 1 – InfoArchive first approach

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

As Gérard explained in its first blog today was the first day not specific to the partners. I had the opportunity to attend some business centric (not really) interesting sessions in the morning. Then the morning ended and the afternoon begun with two keynotes: “Dell EMC Opening Keynote” and “Digital Transformation Keynote”. Finally I was able to attend a hands on session on InfoArchive and that’s what I will talk about in this blog since…

Documentum story – SSL Password for the JKS of the DSearch & IndexAgent (xPlore)

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In a previous blog (click here), I described how to setup the DSearch and IndexAgent(s) in HTTPS using the Groovy script provided by EMC in newer versions of Documentum. This script is quite cool because it will allow you to automatically do some stuff like updating the xml configuration files, put the java keystore in the right location and configure JBoss to use it, aso… It also allows you to quickly apply/revert changes to do…

Documentum story – Status of IndexAgent not visible in HTTPS (xPlore)

By | Entreprise content management | 2 Comments

In one of our project, we were using CS 7.2 P02 (upgraded later with P05) in correlation with xPlore 1.5 P02. With these versions, we wanted to setup the IndexAgents in HTTPS to have a completely secured environment. We choose to follow the xPlore documentation and use the Groovy script that EMC is now providing to facilitate the setup in HTTPS of the IndexAgents & Primary DSearch.   The first thing to note is that…

Documentum story – Setup the DSearch & IndexAgent in HTTPS (xPlore)

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In this blog, I will show you how to setup the Primary DSearch and IndexAgent in HTTPS for xPlore 1.5. The documentation about that is available on the EMC WebSite as always and the pdf name is: “xPlore 1.5 Installation Guide.pdf”. The reason why I wanted to wrote this blog is because the documentation is not too bad but there are still some missing parts and without these parts, your configuration will just not work…
