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…

Documentum story – Disable PDF automatic generation but allow jpeg

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

We had a request by a customer where he wanted the pdf automatic rendition to be disabled but keep allowing the jpeg renditions to be used as thumbnails for D2. The pdf is generated by an eternal tool so it wasn’t needed here. Here is what we did: Login to the ADTS server and edit the following file: <CTS_HOME>\config\CTSServerService.xml For the repository named “DOCBASE1”, comment the QueueProcessorContext tag as follow and only if it include…

Documentum story – Migrate repository cryptography from crypto key to the crypto keystore

By | Entreprise content management | One Comment

In this blog post I will explain the migration of the crypto key (aek.key) to the crypto keystore (lockbox) for an upgraded repository. In fact, during customer activities, I has been involved in the migration of a repository hosted on a content server 6.7 SP2 to a new infrastructure. A content server 7.2 P05 was on the new infrastructure where the lockbox was already used by other repositories. The pre-requisite to achieve this migration is…

Momentum16 – Day 2 – What’s new in Documentum 7.3 ?

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

As described in my last post related to Momentum 16, I was excited to see the session “What’s new in Documentum 7.3”. Do not worry, I could slept last night. But are my expectations fulfilled?   So yesterday I wrote about PostgreSQL which will decrease the cost of the DB licensing and then your TCO. It seems that based on benchmarks, there is still some place for small improvements to have the same performance as…
