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.

Security researchers have discovered a vulnerability in a piece of adware called Superfish
that makes your computer vulnerable to all kinds of attacks. Superfish ships preloaded on many Lenovo computers, but can also be installed on any
machine. Here's what's going on and how to test if you're infected.

Due to security vulnerabilities (CVE-2012-6153 and CVE-2014-3577) WebSphere Portal is removing the Apache commons-httpclient JAR files from all releases and replacing them with the newer version (Apache HttpClient 4.3.6).
Note that the JAR files may not be removed by a specific interim fix but the interim fix will remove all WebSphere Portal uses of those JAR files and the JAR files will be removed by a subsequent Cumulative Fix associated with that release.
These JAR files have been on the Portal classpath in many releases. They were never intended to be used by our customers but it is possible that they could be used by a customer's custom portlets or by a third party's custom portlets.
The specific JAR files that will be removed are the following: commons-httpclient-2.0.jar commons-httpclient-3.0.jar commons-httpclient-3.0.1.jar
The WebSphere Portal releases in which the removal takes place are:
WebSphere Portal V220.127.116.11
WebSphere Portal V18.104.22.168
WebSphere Portal V22.214.171.124
WebSphere Portal V126.96.36.199 (included in CF15)
WebSphere Portal V188.8.131.52
If you do not have any custom code or third party code that uses these JAR files you do not have to do anything as consequence of this removal.
If you do have custom code or third party code that depends on these JAR files to be in the Portal Server classpath then you will have to make a change. There are many options. You can simply add a copy of the JAR back into the WebSphere Application Server or WebSphere Portal classpath, add the JAR into the appropriate portlet WAR file (neither of which will protect you from the security vulnerabilities) or change your custom source code to use the new Apache HttpClient 4.3.6 JAR that does fix the security vulnerability. Changing the source code is the best option. Note that Apache HttpClient 4.3.6 is a complete rewrite of the library and there is no backward compatibility. Reference the Apache web site for more details.

External collaboration is a new feature of Connections 5.
External user are any users "marked" or "selected" as a external.
External users can:
- Only see Files and Communites that he/she has given access to
- See people in the community and business card (limited to some information)
- Search, but no public data will be returned.
The process is not complicated. The key is how to mark or select external users on your ldap. The options are;
1 - Map standard LDAP attribute for external users
3 - Use an LDAP branch to store external users.
I use the option 3 because on our LDAP external users are in another branch
I am using linux .
1 - First create another folder above /opt/IBM/TDI/V7.1.1 and copy the content of the TDISOL. I create with the nameTDISOLEXTERNAL
2- Edit map_dbrepos_from_source.properties and add a line
3 Edit profiles_tdi.properties and set the properties
4- Append a string to an external user´s display name in map_dbrepos_from_source.properties
5 - Run collect.dns and verify the list of users. Do not run sync_all_dns.sh or you will inactivate internal users!
6 - run populate_from_dn_file.sh
7 - Only internal users with the role EMPLOYEE_EXTENDED can share content with external users. Add the role to the users using wsadmin
Now you can collaborate with external users.

After i setup the IBM Connections 5.0 CR1 i open the homepage and the theme was show as the old IBM Connections theme not the new one.
I found on the systemout.log the following
net.jazz.ajax.internal.util.TraceSupport warn The StyleSheet "com.ibm.lconn.core.styles.oneui3/base/applications/profiles"
To solve the problem shutdown the connections server and clean the temp folder of the websphere application server on all nodes.
Restart the server and everything must be ok.
Thanks to Michael Urspinger

Email productivity is a hot topic and several companies will launch new products including IBM with IBM Verse.
But do not forget: Good spam protection is a important piece.
Several months ago, in our company, i setup Lotus Protector for Mail Security.
Before the setup, on mornings, we have a lot of spam and undesired messages do deal with.
We loose lots of hours / month just cleaning the inbox.
Some important messages was deleted during this clean process.
Using traveler on mornings was a nightmare.
The life after Protector is very different, there is no inbox cleaning anymore and blocked messages is managed by the users using IBM Notes integrated with Protector
Almost 90% of the hits are blocked, thousand of messages are blocked every day with zero false positive
