Documentum – A first experience with the Life Sciences Suite 16.6.1 silent installation

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

A few months ago, I was working on automating an LSS installation for a customer so I thought about sharing my experience around that topic… LSS is the Life Sciences product from OpenText (formerly EMC->Dell->OpenText). It can be split into four sub-products, which can be installed independently or all together, depending on the needs. These four products are the LSTMF (eTrial Master File Solution), LSQM (Quality and Manufacturing Solution), LSRD (Research and Development Solution) and…

WebLogic Server – Automatic/Silent setup of a SAML2 SSO

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In a previous blog, I explained how it is possible to create an LDAP/LDAPs Authentication Provider on WebLogic. My initial goal wasn’t just to setup an LDAP/LDAPs on WebLogic Server. That was only a first step needed in order to automate the setup of a SAML2 Single Sign-On linked with the authentication from a LDAPs. Therefore, in this blog, we will take a look at that second part. Just like for the LDAP Authentication Provider,…

WebLogic Server – Automatic/Silent creation of an LDAP Authentication Provider

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In a previous blog, I explained how it is possible to create an LDAP/LDAPs connection from a Documentum Content Server automatically/silently (without any need for a GUI). So I thought I would do the same thing but from a WebLogic Server to have the full chain from the Application to the backend, all connected to the LDAP/LDAPs. This blog isn’t linked to Documentum, it is really just WebLogic Server specific so if you want to…

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…

Documentum – Fixing issues with the D2 Privileged Client utility

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

In a previous blog, I talked about the D2 utility that can be used to automate the registration, approval and global management of the DFC Client IDs and Privileged Clients. The instructions I gave were the optimal (“normal”) ones… However, in reality, this utility or at least the shell script that is supposed to facilitate its execution is kinda bad. Therefore, if you really want to use it, then you first need to fix it….

Documentum – Silent Install – xPlore IndexAgent

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

In previous blogs, we installed in silent the Documentum binaries (CS), a docbroker (+licence(s) if needed), several repositories (here and here), D2 and finally the xPlore binaries & Dsearch. This blog will be the last one of this series related to silent installation on Documentum and it will be about how to install an xPlore IndexAgent on the existing docbase/repository created previously. So let’s start, as always, with the preparation of the properties file: [[email protected]_text_server_01…

Documentum – Silent Install – xPlore binaries & Dsearch

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

In previous blogs, we installed in silent the Documentum binaries (CS), a docbroker (+licence(s) if needed), several repositories (here and here) and finally D2. I believe I only have 2 blogs left and they are both related to xPlore. In this one, we will see how to install the xPlore binaries as well as configure a first instance (Dsearch here) on it. Just like other Documentum components, you can find some silent installation files or…

Documentum – Silent Install – Remote Docbases/Repositories (HA)

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

In previous blogs, we installed in silent the Documentum binaries, a docbroker (+licence(s) if needed), several repositories and finally D2. In this one, we will see how to install remote docbases/repositories to have a High Availability environment with the docbases/repositories that we already installed in silent. As mentioned in the first blog of this series, there is a utility under “$DM_HOME/install/silent/silenttool” that can be used to generate a skeleton for a CFS/Remote CS but there…
