Alfresco Clustering – Repository

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

In a previous blog, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco. Now that this introduction has been done, let’s dig into the real blogs about how to setup a HA/Clustering Alfresco environment. In this blog in particular, I will talk about the Repository layer. For the Repository Clustering, there are three prerequisites (and that’s all you need): A valid license which include the Repository Clustering A shared file system which…

Alfresco Clustering – Basis & Architectures

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

This blog will be the first of a series on Alfresco HA/Clustering topics. It’s been too long I haven’t posted anything related to Alfresco so I thought about writing a few blogs about my experience with setting up more or less complex HA/Clustering infrastructures. So, let’s start this first part with an introduction to the Alfresco HA/Clustering. If you want to setup a HA/Cluster environment, you will have to first think about where you want…

Alfresco – ActiveMQ basic setup

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

ActiveMQ is an open source Java Messaging Server (JMS) from the Apache Software Foundation that supports a lot of protocols. In Alfresco 5, ActiveMQ has been introduced as a new, optional, component in the stack. It was, at the beginning, only used for “side” features like Alfresco Analytics or Alfresco Media Management in the early Alfresco 5.0. In Alfresco 6.0, ActiveMQ was still used for Alfresco Media Management but also for the Alfresco Sync Service….

Documentum – D2+Pack Plugins not installed correctly

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

In a previous blog, I explained how D2 can be installed in silent. In this blog, I will talk about a possible issue that might happen when doing so with the D2+Pack Plugins that aren’t being installed, even if you ask D2 to install them and while there is no message or no errors related to this issue. The first time I had this issue, it was several years ago but I never blogged about…

Connecting to a Repository via a Dynamically Edited dfc.properties File (part II)

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

This is part II of the 2-part article. See for part I of this article. Testing We will test on the host machine named docker that hosts 2 containers, container01 and container011. All 3 machines run a repository. Its name is respectively dmtest on docker (shortly, [email protected]:1489), [email protected]:1489 ([email protected]:2489 externally) and [email protected]:1489 ([email protected]:5489 externally). Incidentally, the enhanced syntax is also a good way to uniquely identify the repositories. The current dfc.properties file on the host…

Connecting to a Repository via a Dynamically Edited dfc.properties File (part I)

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

Now that we have containerized content servers, it is very easy, maybe too easy, to create new repositories. Their creation is still not any faster (whether they are containerized or not is irrelevant here) but given a configuration file it just takes one command to instantiate an image into a running container with working repositories in it. Thus, during experimentation and testing, out of laziness or in a hurry, one can quickly finish up having…

An exotic feature in the content server: check_client_version

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

A few months ago, I tripped over a very mysterious problem while attempting to connect to a 7.3 CS docbase from within dqMan. We had 3 docbases and we could connect using this client to all of them but one ! Moreover, we could connect to all three using a remote Documentum Administrator or the local idql/iapi command-line tools. Since we could connect to at least one of them with dqMan, this utility was not…

Documentum – DOCUMENTUM_SHARED is dead?

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In June last year, I did my first manual installation (so without docker) of Documentum 16.4 and I was testing it with PostgreSQL. I quickly realized that there were some changes in Documentum and, unfortunately, I don’t believe that it’s for the best! In this blog, I will talk about the DOCUMENTUM_SHARED environment variable. I tested that almost a year ago with a PostgreSQL binary but it’s the same for all Documentum 16.4 binaries. This…
