Documentum – LSS registerOracleVersionView script with wrong content

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

As discussed in a previous blog, working with LSS might prove a little bit challenging from time to time.

But let’s add containers in the game now. I didn’t want to touch any based image for applications including SQL Server with debugging tools added. So, my concern was to figure out how to…
