Documentum – Unable to stop an IDS configured in SSL?

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

When working with the IDS, you might face some interesting behaviors as mentioned in the last blog I wrote for example. This one will focus on the SSL part of the IDS on the target side. On this blog, I will start with showing the content of our start/stop scripts and how it is working in non-SSL, then switching to SSL and try again. Therefore for this blog, I quickly installed a test IDS 7.3 using…

Documentum – Using DA with Self-Signed SSL Certificate

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

A few years ago, I was working on a Documentum project and one of the tasks was to setup all components in SSL. I already published a lot of blogs on this subject but there is one I wanted to do but never really took the time to publish it. In this blog, I will therefore talk about Documentum Administrator in SSL using a Self-Sign SSL Certificate. Recently, a colleague of mine had the same…

Documentum story – SSL Password for the JKS of the DSearch & IndexAgent (xPlore)

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In a previous blog (click here), I described how to setup the DSearch and IndexAgent(s) in HTTPS using the Groovy script provided by EMC in newer versions of Documentum. This script is quite cool because it will allow you to automatically do some stuff like updating the xml configuration files, put the java keystore in the right location and configure JBoss to use it, aso… It also allows you to quickly apply/revert changes to do…

Documentum story – Status of IndexAgent not visible in HTTPS (xPlore)

By | Entreprise content management | 2 Comments

In one of our project, we were using CS 7.2 P02 (upgraded later with P05) in correlation with xPlore 1.5 P02. With these versions, we wanted to setup the IndexAgents in HTTPS to have a completely secured environment. We choose to follow the xPlore documentation and use the Groovy script that EMC is now providing to facilitate the setup in HTTPS of the IndexAgents & Primary DSearch.   The first thing to note is that…

Documentum story – Setup the DSearch & IndexAgent in HTTPS (xPlore)

By | Entreprise content management | No Comments

In this blog, I will show you how to setup the Primary DSearch and IndexAgent in HTTPS for xPlore 1.5. The documentation about that is available on the EMC WebSite as always and the pdf name is: “xPlore 1.5 Installation Guide.pdf”. The reason why I wanted to wrote this blog is because the documentation is not too bad but there are still some missing parts and without these parts, your configuration will just not work…

Some time ago, I was creating a new Managed Server named msD2-02 on an existing domain of a WebLogic Server 12.1.3.0 created loooong ago and I faced a small issue that I will try to explain in this blog. This Managed Server will be used to host a D2 4.5 Application (Documentum Client) and I created it using the Administration Console, customized it, enabled the SSL with internal SSL Certificates, the SAML2 Single Sign-On, aso……
