Re: IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Installation - From Zero To Hero - Basics

I was getting no awareness on web meetings over SSL / HTTPS. This was due to meetingroomcenter.stProxySSLAddress not being populated.

Slide on page 398 tells us to populate meetingroomcenter.stProxyAddress , but there is no mention to populate meetingroomcenter.stProxySSLAddress.

I used a simple https://webchat.renovations.com and it worked (restart the meetings server just in case).

Great guide Frank, thanks

Hey Frank, thank you for sharing such good content and knowledge. All your presentations have been very helpful to us.

Where's part 3 though?

Re: IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Installation - From Zero To Hero - Basics

due to a bug

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg1PM61375

in the WAS version included in software in 8.5.2 it can happen that Deployment Manager does not start anymore. You notice Sametime System Console has empty portlets.

It is something fixed in IFR1, but you cannot update to IFR1 if Deployment Manager cannot startup and shutdown properly. This bug does not allow it to start and shutdown properly.

On dmgr SystemOut.log I was getting this as first error:

.... VariableExpan E WSVR0244E: An undefined HOST product variable has been encountered in the krb5Spn property of the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profilesSTSCDMgrProfile/config/cells/sametimeSSCCell/security.xml#KRB5_1 configuration object.

I fixed it searching for the "undefined" variable close to krb5Spn ... and replacing

krb5Spn="WAS/${HOST}"

with

krb5Spn="WAS/acme"

Great documentation Frank.

Just to clarify - this is not for production use. You can use this for your demo or maybe for POC environment.

It is not a good idea to install media server on the same machine with other was services (unstable and problems with

different ip addresses) and you need to define different hostnames for proxy & meeting server because of problems with the JSession ID

(see Sametime wiki docu "Deploying Sametime Meeting Server and Sametime Proxy Server on the same computer")

Thanx

Re: IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Installation - From Zero To Hero - Basics

There are a few errors in that guide:

The scenario says that the meeting server could have the same ip-address than the base server and only a dns-alias. That didn't work. The meeting server needs his own ip-address.

In some of the script commands for adding the new services is givven "wasservice" as user name. It should be "wasadmin".

How do I get Part 2 & 3 ?

This a really helpfull to clear any doubt about ST852 installation/configuration.

Just two questions :

When deploying each WAS component you don't check 'Use an existing WAS installation' (and provide the path). Do this mean that it reinstall every WAS bin & lib over the existing one and leaving current application & profiles ?

What are the host aliases for 'sip_proxyreg_hos't virtual host and is this optional ?

Thanks

Re: IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Installation - From Zero To Hero - Basics

slide 17 might be misleading - better would be: "... with such a configuration you theoretically could host up to ...". The 2 server scenario still is for a pilot environment, do not run a production environment with this configuration, especially the media manager requires sufficient system resources and bandwidth as the LDAP connection does.

Re: IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Installation - From Zero To Hero - Basics

!!! DO NOT COPY and PASTE the wasservice or sc commands from the PDF document directly into your CMD line window. This will fail. Copy the commands into a Notepad window, edit them there and remove al CR/LF inside. Or the command will fail.

Better is to enter the command manually character by character. (i know its work...)
