™ Delayed Synchronizer should automatically propagate changes after a Lotus Quickr
server outage; however, in unusual circumstances, such as restoring a Lotus Quickr
place from backup, you might want to force a full synchronization to occur. You can mark an IBM
Connections community that contains links to a Lotus Quickr
Wiki or Teamspace so that the synchronizer performs a full synchronization between the membership of the place and the membership of its associated community when the synchronization task next runs.
Before you begin
To use administrative commands, you must use the wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client
About this task
The Lotus Quickr
Delayed Synchronizer propagates community membership changes to associated Lotus Quickr
places if the Lotus Quickr
server is down when a community change occurs. The synchronizer also grants or removes public access to match the associated community's visibility. The synchronizer runs hourly by default.
You need to ensure that the delayed synchronization task is only enabled on one server in the cluster. For more information, see What to do next
in the topic Configuring delayed synchronization
To mark a community for synchronization, complete the following steps.
- Start the wsadmin client from the following directory of the system on which you installed the Deployment Manager:
is the WebSphere
® Application Server installation directory and <dm_profile_root>
is the Deployment Manager profile directory, typically dmgr01.
You must start the client from this directory or subsequent commands that you enter do not execute correctly.
- Start the Communities Jython script interpreter using the following command:
If prompted to specify a service to connect to, type 1 to pick the first node in the list. Most commands can run on any node. If the command writes or reads information to or from a file using a local file path, you must pick the node where the file is stored.
- Use the ManagedAppService.addLinkProperty command to update the association between a community and a remote application by adding the NEEDS-TO-BE-SYNCED key property and setting it to true.
When fetching a link for a community application, to fetch a Lotus Quickr
Portal Wiki, use QuickrPortalWiki, and to fetch a Lotus Quickr
Portal team place, use QuickrPortalTeamspace.
The Lotus Quickr
Delayed Synchronizer performs a full membership synchronization between the Lotus Quickr
place and the associated community when the synchronization task is next run.
