Documentum – Java exception stack on iAPI/iDQL login

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

Recently, I was doing some sanity checks on a Documentum Server and I saw a Java exception stack while logging in using iAPI/iDQL to a Repository. It was reproducible for all Repositories. I’ve never seen something like that before (or at least I don’t remember it) so I was a little bit surprised. Whenever there are errors upon login, it is usually Documentum error messages that are printed and there is no exception stack. Since…

Documentum – Connection to docbrokers and Repositories inside K8s from an external DFC Client

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

How can you connect an external DFC Client to docbrokers and Repositories hosted on Kubernetes Pods? That seems to be a very simple question yet it might prove difficult… Let’s talk about this challenge in this blog and possible solutions/workarounds. As you all know, Kubernetes is using containers so just like for a basic Docker container, you won’t be able to access it from the outside by default. On Docker, you will need to expose…

Documentum – NoSuchMethodError on setResourceBundle with D2-REST 16.4 on WebLogic

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

In the scope of an upgrade project, with some colleagues, we have been deploying some D2-REST applications on Kubernetes pods using WebLogic Server. As explained in a previous blog, we first tried to upgrade our D2-REST 4.x into 16.4 but faced a small error. I don’t know if you already used/deployed D2-REST but it seems to me that the deployment is always kinda chaotic. Sometimes you will need to apply some steps and then for…

Documentum – Cast trouble with D2-REST 16.5.x on WebLogic

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

In the scope of an upgrade project, with some colleagues, we have been deploying some D2-REST applications on Kubernetes pods using WebLogic Server. At the beginning, we started using D2-REST 16.4 and that was working properly (once the issue described here is fixed (and some others linked to FIPS 140-2, aso…)). After that, we tried to switch to higher versions (16.5.0 Pxx, 16.5.1 P00 or P04) but it stopped working with some error. We were…

Documentum – LDAP Config Object “certdb_location” has invalid value

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

In a previous blog, I talked about the automation of the LDAP/LDAPs creation. However, the first time that I applied these steps, I actually faced an issue and I couldn’t really get my head around it, at first. This will be a rather short post but I still wanted to share my thoughts because it might avoid you some headache. The issue is only linked to the SSL part of the setup so there is…

Documentum – Automatic/Silent creation of LDAP/LDAPs Server Config Objects

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

If you have been working with Documentum, then you probably already created/configured an LDAP/LDAPs Server Config Object (or several) so that your users can be globally managed in your organization. There are several compatible LDAP Servers so I will just take one (Sun One/Netscpae/iPlanet Directory Server). To create this LDAP/LDAPs Server Config Object, you probably used Documentum Administrator because it’s simple and quick to setup, however that’s not enough for automation. In this blog, I…

Documentum – Automatic/Silent registration & approval of DFC Clients

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

In the past several months, I have been working extensively with several other colleagues on a migration of Documentum from VMs to K8s pods. We have been doing/using silent installations for several years already but there were still several manual tasks for the customization of the repository, deployment of some applications, aso… In this blog, I will talk about what can be done to automate the registration and approval of DFC Clients s o it…
