Documentum – Dsearch & IA not working in HTTPS using xPlore 1.6?

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

I’m warning you, this blog will be short, like extra short! Beginning of this year, during our testing of the new xPlore 1.6 (GA release, no patches were available) components, I was following my blog to setup a PrimaryDsearch and an IndexAgent in HTTPS using the ConfigSSL.groovy. As the groovy script is provided with the xPlore components directly, the steps coming from my previous blog also apply to xPlore 1.6 (just need to replace JBoss…

Documentum – Setup a CPS in HTTPS – Unable to register it

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In a previous blog (see this one), I described how to setup a WildFly instance in HTTPS and I quickly mentioned something related to the CPS. When I wrote this previous blog, I was already aware of one specific issue that prevented the CPS to be usable but I didn’t want to mention it to stay focus on the WildFly specific steps for the HTTPS setup which are common between the JMS and the CPS….

Documentum – Setup WildFly in HTTPS

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In a previous blog (See this one), I mentioned some differences between JBoss 7.1.1 (coming with CS 7.2 / xPlore 1.5) and WildFly 9.0.1 (coming with CS 7.3 / xPlore 1.6). In this blog, I will talk about what is needed to setup a WildFly instance in HTTPS only or HTTPS+HTTP. This blog applies to both Content Servers and Full Text Servers. On the Full Text Server side, you might be aware of the ConfigSSL.groovy script…

Documentum – WildFly not able to start in a CS 7.3 / xPlore 1.6

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

As mentioned in previous blogs (like this one), we were doing some testing on the newly released versions of Documentum (CS 7.3, xPlore 1.6, aso…). On this blog, I will talk about something that can prevent the WildFly instances to start properly (RedHat renamed the JBoss Application Server to WildFly in 2013 starting with the version 8.0). As this issue is linked to WildFly, you can understand that this might happen on both Content Servers 7.3 and Full Text…

Documentum – Not able to install IndexAgent with xPlore 1.6

By | Entreprise content management | One Comment

In the last few months, we already did some tests with the Content Server 7.3, D2 4.7 and xPlore 1.6. As often, we found some funny/interesting behaviors and we faced some issues. In this blog I will talk about one issue I faced when I tried to install a new IndexAgent with xPlore 1.6. The Content Server used was a CS 7.3 (no patch available when I did this installation). This issue was present in…

Documentum – Deactivation of a docbase without uninstallation

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

At some of our customers, we often install new docbases for development purposes which are used only for a short time to avoid cross-team interactions/interferences and this kind of things. Creating new docbases is quite easy with Documentum but it still takes some time (unless you use silent installations or Docker components). Therefore installing/removing docbases over and over can be a pain. For this purpose, we often install new docbases but then we don’t uninstall it,…

Documentum – Increase the number of concurrent_sessions

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In Documentum, there is a parameter named concurrent_sessions which basically defines how many sessions a Content Server can open simultaneously. This parameter is defined in the server.ini file (or server_<dm_server_config.object_name>.ini on a Remote Content Server) of each docbase and it has a default value of 100. An empty Content Server with an IndexAgent and D2 installed (without user using it) will usually take around 10 sessions for the jobs, for the searches, aso… As soon…

Documentum – Wrong dfc versions after installation, upgrade or patch

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

If you are familiar with Documentum or if you already read some of my blogs, then you probably already know that EMC has sometimes issues with libraries. In a previous blog (this one), I talked about the Lockbox versions which caused us an issue and in this blog, I will talk about DFC versions. Whenever you install a CS patch or another patch, it will probably have its own DFC libraries simply because EMC fixed something…

Documentum – Thumbnail not working with TCS

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

A few months ago and right after a migration of around 0.5TB of documents, we enabled the TCS for one of our Application. We were using a Content Server 7.2 P05 with the associated D2 4.5 P03. As already mentioned in a previous blog, D2 4.5 doesn’t handle the previews of the documents and therefore there were also a Thumbnail Server used by this Application. The setup of the TCS for the document filestores went…

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

By | Entreprise content management | 2 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…
