Setup IBM Traveler for IBM Verse App from Zero to Verse Hero

    Kenio Carvalho  1 May 2015 21:42:33
    I follow the steps bellow to setup my IBM Traveler to allow the IBM Verse App.

    My Domino and Traveler is on the same machine using Linux.

    1 - Install or upgrade the Domino server 9.0.1 FP3

    2 - Install or upgrade IBM Traveler

    3 - Configure Domino HTTP for SSL.  This link was very useful for self cert.

    4 - I am using iPhone. The easiest way to import the self cert was sending the cert by mail and then install the cert on the iPhone.

    5 - Upgrade the Domino Directory ( The current Domino Directory Template does not have a tab for IBM Verse.

    6 - Download the IBM Verse App from the store and be happy :-)

      How to specify port when ssh to server

      Kenio Carvalho  2 April 2015 21:15:17
      Need this kind of port today. The ssh 22 port was used on the firewall for another server. The admin publish the server using port 1234
      According to man ssh:

       -p port 

      Port to connect to on the remote host. This can be specified on
      a per-host basis in the configuration file.

      So you should be looking at:

      ssh -p 1234 user@host

      to connect to port 1234.

          Domino SSO with SharePoint using SPNEGO

          Kenio Carvalho  25 March 2015 12:37:49
          This week i setup Domino SSO with Windows. The customer will launch a SharePoint portal server and need a SSO with Domino Web Applications.

          I follow this tutorial, the setup is very simple but some problems arrive.

          The Domino server have the FQDN  and the windows server The SSO doesn't work.
          I read the message  Attempt by HTTP client to authenticate using Windows NTLM security is not supported on Domino console.

          After the AD administrator setup the user dominostart, he issued the command SETSPN -a HTTP/ dominostart.

          When the user try to access a url of the domino server the browser show a logon dialog but the title of the dialog show the windows server name (

          I asked the AD administrator to add another SPN SETSPN -a HTTP/ dominostart

          Everything works after a Domino restart. :=)

          If you want to use Chrome as your browser you need to start Chrome with arguments

          /path/to/chrome --auth-server-whitelist="*"

            Setup IBM Cognos Connections 5 on SLES11 and Oracle. A novel

            Kenio Carvalho  19 March 2015 08:23:12
            This week i spend several hours to setup a machine with IBM Cognos and IBM Connections 5 CR2 on SLES 11 SP3 using Oracle as database.

            The Cognos wizard complete the CognosBI setup but Trasnformer not.

            I set the logs to debug level and the messages does not help.

            The problem was when the error appears the wizard roll back the installation of CognosBI removing everything from WebSphere.

            After several reviews of the SLES libraries and Oracle client setup i made the setup only for CognosBI (previously i setup CognosBI + Transformer) successfully.

            I try to open the cognos URL like http://server:port/cognos/servlet/dispatch/ext but the server doesn't send any response

            Reading the cognos.log i found the following :

            Initialization_SESS Initialization_REQ Thread-70        CM        6304        1        Audit.cms.CM        StartService Warning
            CM-CFG-5063 A Content Manager configuration error was detected while connecting to the content store. sealing violation:
            package oracle.jdbc is sealed Runtime Exception stack trace: java.lang.SecurityException: sealing violation: package oracle.jdbc is sealed

            I don't now why but the installer copy the orajdbc6.jar into Cognos.ear.   I stop the cognos server, remove the orajdbc6.jar from the lib folder inside of cognos.ear and  start the server.

            The cognosBI works and  Transformer was installed without problems.

            The steps i follow

            1 - Setup Cognos BI
            2 - Stop the server and remove the orajdbc6.jar from the cognos.ear
            3 - Start the Cognos Server
            4 - Setup the Transformer

              IBM Connections requires that XMLHTTP is enabled in Internet Explorer

              Kenio Carvalho  9 March 2015 08:26:17
              IBM Connections requires that XMLHTTP is enabled in Internet Explorer, either through ActiveX or native object, for the dynamic AJAX functionality to function correctly.

              Check Enable native XMLHTTP support in the Advanced tab of the Internet Options dialog

              Image:IBM Connections requires that XMLHTTP is enabled in Internet Explorer

                IBM Connections 5.0 Search index error.

                Kenio Carvalho  3 March 2015 19:16:51
                Some users are receiving the message bellow instead of the search results:

                CLFRW0075W: Failed to load the index at startup, it may not have been created yet”

                The search index on one node was created/copied.

                To solve the problem i just copy the index from another node.
