dctmping, A Documentum Repository Checker Utility

By | Enterprise content management | No Comments

When working with containers, the usual trend is to make them as compact as possible by removing any file or executable that is not used by what is deployed in it. Typically, interactive commands are good candidates not to be installed. Sometimes, this trend is so extreme that even simple utilities such as ping or even the less pager are missing from the containers. This is generally fine once a container reaches the production stage…

Documentum – IDS on Windows Server not able to start with error 31: device not functioning

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

Documentum Interactive Delivery Services or IDS is a Documentum product that can be useful to publish some documents to an external web server or something similar. It usually works rather well, even if there hasn’t been much changes in the product in years, maybe because it does what it is supposed to do… As a big fan of Linux systems, I pretty much never work on Windows Servers but when I do, somehow, there are…

Documentum – DARs installation fails Java 11

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

As you probably heard if you weren’t in an underground bunker for the past 2 years, Oracle changed the licensing of the Oracle JDK. If you want to read more about it, there is a good FAQ here. This obviously had some important repercussions everywhere and Documentum wasn’t exempted. I would have a lot to say about the way OpenText tried to adapt since Documentum 16.4 (and kind of failed) but that’s not really the…

Documentum – Encryption/Decryption of WebTop 6.8 passwords ‘REJECTED’ with recent JDK

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

Recently, we had a project to modernize a little bit a pretty old Documentum installation. As part of this project, there were a refresh of the Application Server hosting a WebTop 6.8. In this blog, I will be talking about an issue that we faced in encryption & decryption of passwords in the refresh environment. This new environment was using WebLogic 12.1.3 with the latest PSU in conjunction with the JDK 1.8u192. Since WebTop 6.8…

By | Development & Performance, DevOps, SQL Server, Technology Survey | One Comment

WebLogic – Upgrade of Java

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

If you are used to Java, you probably know that there are really important security fixes published every quarter in the Java Critical Patch Update (CPU) and it’s really important to keep it up to date. It’s always easy to upgrade your Java installation, you just have to deploy the new version entirely. In most cases, it’s also pretty easy to update the Components that are using Java (E.g.: Application Servers like Apache Tomcat), since…

WebLogic – JAVA_HOME in WebLogic, a nightmare?

By | Application integration & Middleware | 2 Comments

Everybody knows Java but not everybody loves Java. With everything Oracle is currently doing regarding Java, I can’t say I’m blaming them… But that’s not the topic of this blog! hurrah. Well actually I’m not sure the topic of this blog is much better since I will talk about the management of the JAVA_HOME environment variable with WebLogic and more specifically a very simple WebLogic Server in standalone, nothing more. I always wanted to write…

Connect-times to the DB suddenly become very slow using sqlcl

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, Database management, Development & Performance, Oracle | 5 Comments

I recently wrote a couple of sql-scripts which had to run on all of my customer’s DBs. The sql-scripts had to be started from a Linux-client, which does not have any Oracle client software installed. So I thought of using sqlcl (see http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/sqlcl/downloads/index.html), because there is no need to “install” something then. All I needed was an installed JRE on the Linux-machine. Fortunately that was available. So I downloaded the newest version of sqlcl and…

Documentum xPlore: Several ways to start an Index Agent

By | Application integration & Middleware | 8 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…
