Documentum xPlore: Tuning of JVM for high throughput and low CPU usage

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

Sometimes you have java processes or even jboss servers using a lot of CPU. In my example I had an xPlore dsearch server using like 98% of the cpu. When using jconsole and jvisualvm I figured out the garbage collector was using 50 to 60% of the cpu time. This was because the server was indexing and accessing the internal DB very often. Hence a lot of objects were created, the JVM was not correctly…

Documentum xPlore: Several ways to start an Index Agent

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In order to start index agents, you have several ways, depending on how you need to start them. 1. Use the documentum job dm_FTIndexAgentBoot. If you setup start_index_agents=T in the server.ini, the job will be called when the docbases are started. 2. Use the web interface: Login to http://server:9200/IndexAgent/ with docbase credentials and select “Start in normal mode” 3. Login to DA and go to Indexing Management -> Index Agents and Index Servers Right click…

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…

Enable Trusted Content Services (TCS) license in Documentum Content Server

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

The Trusted Content Services is a pack of features that you can enable/purchase to gain more security for your Content Server. The main key features are listed in this documentation: https://www.emc.com/collateral/software/data-sheet/h3138-security-ds.pdf In our case, we wanted to benefit from the Repository Encryption feature: Repository Encryption: Documentum TCS prevents intruders from accessing information even if they obtain unauthorized access to repository files at the file-system or storage level. This capability protects content against an operating system…

Configuring Fusion Middleware 12C Reports Server with Single Sign On and External LDAP server

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

Most of the time when the Reports Server is configured with an Single Sign On Server, it uses the same external LDAP server as the Single Sign On Server. In our case, we used an Oracle Access Manager as Single Sign On and an Oracle Internet Directory as LDAP server. Of course the Fusion Middleware needs to be configured with the external LDAP server. This means an Oracle Internet Directory authenticator provider declared in the…

New installed Fusion Middleware 12C Reports or Forms WebLogic Servers fails to start after configuring SSL

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

We installed a Fusion Middleware report and Forms 12.2.1.2.0 on a Linux Server. This was a single node Reports and Forms servers.

Documentum: IndexAgent uninstalled continues to queue requests

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

We had a strange behavior by a customer regarding the indexing queue. We used to have two IA configured and we uninstalled one. I figured out that we still had indexing queue requests for the old index agent while it was totally uninstalled. I checked the following objects to see if the agent was still configured somewhere: dm_fulltext_index, dm_ftengine_config, dm_ftindex_agent_config. But the old IA was not declared anymore. The main problem is that it continued…

Using WebLogic 12C RESTful management for monitoring WebLogic Domains

By | Application integration & Middleware, Oracle | No Comments

WebLogic 12.2.1 provides a new RESTful management interface with full accesses to all WebLogic Server resources. This interface offers an alternative to the WLST scripting or JMX developments for the management and the monitoring of WebLogic Domains. The following of this blog provides a few examples demonstrating the simplicity and the efficiency of the REST requests. WebLogic Server State When checking a WebLogic Server state, we are interested in the state and in the “ActivationTime”…
