IBM Connections Docs 2.0 iFix 004 available

IBM released a new iFix for IBM Connections Docs 2.0 including the following fix:

  • Resolution of several issues with supporting OAuth2 security configuration in the context of integration via REST APIsĀ 

Interesting part is, that all fixes from iFix001 and iFix003 are included. But the corrections from iFix002 have to be separately installed.

The fix is available on IBM Fix Central.

IBM Connections / IBM Docs – DataSources

Yesterday I had the issue during an implementation if IBM Docs 1.0.7, that the node for the Docs server had different partitions than the Deployment Manager.

Deployment Manager partitions: C: / D:
Node for IBM Connections servers: C: / D:
Node for IBM Docs partitions: C: / E:

I found out that the IBM Docs server have troubles by connecting to the DB2 datasources because of the “missing” JDBC drivers. It looked that the Docs server were looking in the same place like the JDBC drivers are located on the node of the IBM Connections servers ( D:/IBM/SQLLIB/java ).

But no chance to modify the drive letters. Searching for a solution I came to this tiny tool >>

Visual Subst

With this tool you are able to “mount” D: like E:. After adding this substitution everything worked fine.
