Momentum16 – Day 1 – Feelings

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

This first day at Momentum 2016 Normally I should write the second one as we started yesterday with a partner session where we got some information. One of these news was that EMC had more than 400 partners a few years ago and today this has been reduced to less than 80 and dbi services is still one of them. For us it is a good news, I hope this is also one for our…

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…

On a customer site, one of the users complained about being kicked out each time he wanted to create new documents in D2. This issue is happening in a default deployment of D2 and D2Config in a WebLogic Domain.We found out that the user sessions for D2Config and D2 are conflicting together. This issue occurs if D2Config and D2 applications are opened in the same browser using different TABs and if the user is navigating…

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…

Documentum story – Thumbnail Server not starting if docbases are down

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In this blog, I will talk about the Thumbnail Server. It’s a component of Documentum that you can install on the Content Server to generate… thumbnails! Basically what it does is that it will work in correlation with the ADTS/CTS in order to generate different kinds of previews of your document. For example jpeg_lres (low resolution) or jpeg_story (StoryBoard). You can define how many previews you want per document (1 preview per page, only the…

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

Some time ago, I was creating a new Managed Server named msD2-02 on an existing domain of a WebLogic Server 12.1.3.0 created loooong ago and I faced a small issue that I will try to explain in this blog. This Managed Server will be used to host a D2 4.5 Application (Documentum Client) and I created it using the Administration Console, customized it, enabled the SSL with internal SSL Certificates, the SAML2 Single Sign-On, aso……

Documentum story – Replicate an Embedded LDAP manually in WebLogic

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In this blog, I will talk about the WebLogic Embedded LDAP. This LDAP is created by default on all AdminServers and Managed Servers of any WebLogic installation. The AdminServer always contains the Primary Embedded LDAP and all other Servers are synchronized with this one. This Embedded LDAP is the default security provider database for the WebLogic Authentication, Authorization, Credential Mapping and Role Mapping providers: it usually contains the WebLogic users, groups, and some other stuff like…

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

When you have an installation with one Content Server (CS) you do not take care where the job will be running. It’s always on your single CS. But how should you configure the jobs in case you have several CS? Which jobs have to be executed and which one not? Let’s see that in this post. When you have to run your jobs in a high availability installation you have to configure some files and objects….
