This file explains how to remove Computer Associates e
Trust SiteMinder from the IBM® Lotus® Quickr™ for WebSphere Portal environment
Follow these steps to remove Computer Associates e
Trust SiteMinder from the IBM Lotus Quickr for WebSphere Portal environment. After performing this procedure, the following changes occur:
- IBM WebSphere® Application Server handles authentication for Lotus Quickr
- Lotus Quickr handles authorization for its resources
- If you used eTrust SiteMinder for authorization, use the following steps:
- Use either the Resource Permissions portlet or, if you are set up to execute it, the XML Configuration Interface (xmlaccess) to internalize any resources managed by eTrust SiteMinder. (Use xmlaccess if you followed the xmlaccess procedure within Configuring eTrust SiteMinder to perform authorization for Lotus Quickr.)
- Edit the quickr_server_root/base/wp.base/shared/app/config/services.properties file and change the value of com.ibm.wps.services.ac.ExternalAccessControlService to com.ibm.wps.services.ac.ExternalAccessControlService = com.ibm.wps.ac.impl.ExternalAccessControlDefaultImpl.
Note: In a cluster environment, you must edit services.properties on all nodes.
- Change the authentication.execute.portal.jaas.login property to false in the authentication service, as described in Setting configuration properties: qp85.
- Change the enableExternalization property to false in extrenal access control service, as described in Setting configuration properties: qp85. This will prevent the Externalize/Internalize icon from appearing in the Administration Access portlet once eTrust SiteMinder is removed.
- If you previously disabled the ability to create users through Lotus Quickr, now restore it. Re-enable Lotus Quickr auto-registration. Restore the backup copy of the was_profile_root/installedApps/node_name/wps.ear/wps.war/themes/html/theme_name/ToolBarInclude.jsp file that is located in the subdirectory of each theme.
- If you used eTrust SiteMinder for authentication, use the WebSphere Application Server Administration Console to disable the eTrust SiteMinder TAI:
- In the WebSphere Application Server Administration Console, click Security -> Global security -> Authentication -> Authentication mechanisms -> LTPA. Click Trust Association under Additional Properties.
- Deselect the Trust Association Enabled check box.
- Click OK, then click Save.
- Restart WebSphere Application Server.
- If you did not use eTrust SiteMinder for authentication, restart WebSphere Application Server.
- If necessary, uninstall any Computer Associates components.
