We are using Sametime 3.0 (fixpacked to IR2) in conjunction with Websphere Portal Server 4.2.
The problem we have is that periodically (about once a day), the Portal server loses its connection to Sametime, and therefore all the PeopleAwareness functionality stops working. To get this up and running again requires a restart of the Portal server.
Looking at the WPS log reveals the following entry:
STResolverService resolveName ex = java.lang.NullPointerException
This occurs around the time the link between WPS and Sametime is lost, and then appears periodically in the log, as I guess WPS is trying to reconnect.
I did find an IBM document that acknowledges the problem. Supposedly this is fixed in WPS 5.0.
