    Install Sametime Community Server 9

    Root required for installation

    Although the main goal of this series , is to install Sametime as non-root, for Domino it’s not possible to install as non-root.
    So I’ll use root to install Domino here.

    Prerequisites :

    Connections TDI problem

    Recently, in 2 situations , once with Connections v4.5 and once with v4.0, we ran into an annoying TDI problem.
    Not a single synchronization worked, and the only thing we saw in the logs was this:

    14:58:52,874 INFO - CLFRN0001I: DB from LDAP Field mapping: PROF_VALUE.value <– value
    14:58:52,879 INFO - [callSyncDB_mod] CTGDIS495I handleException , initialize, java.lang.Exception: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:$Holder (initialization failure)
    14:58:52,881 INFO - [callSyncDB_mod] CTGDIS350I Hook initialize_fail [6].

    Failed Metrics update when Connections 4.0 is installed without Cognos

    Recently, I was in 2 projects where we installed Connections 4.0 initially without Cognos. 1 installation was on Windows, the other one on Linux.

    In 1 of the 2, we added Cognos later on - on it’s own system, but that’s not really relevant here.

    We used silent installation methods to install fixpack CR2, and later CR3, and didn’t immediately notice that the Metrics application failed to update.
    So I looked into that.

    It turned out that although the Metrics application installed succesfully, the update installer can’t “see” it. In the metricsInstall.log in the {Connections}/logs directory, an error occurs at action-update-server-info-cognos.
    The end result is “Build Successful”, but there’s obviously some information missing.

    Set the application security on the Connections applications (updated)

    This is a script that can be used to set the security on all the IBM Connections applications, with a text file as configuration source. I personally find setting the security on the applicaiton in Connections a very tedious and error-prone job. This script
    makes it a lot easier.
    The version of the script is for Connections 4.0 and Connections 4.5

    Quickr Domino on Linux problem - can't upload attachments (and the solution)

    I had a PMR opened for a long time now, because on my personal Quickr 8.5.1 Vmware machines (SLES and CentOS), I had the really annoying problem that I couldn’t upload attachments anymore. Now that’s a really basic function of Quickr, so it really annoyed me.

    The solution came from support today, and it was a surprisingly simple solution : the notes user (running Domino) didn’t have write access to the /tmp directory.
