Maximo has an application called System Properties where you can control and set the values that should be used by any property in the System. However, in order to see the Current Value of a System Property in Maximo UI, you are required to open each of the property lines and check the values in the fields, which could be very time consuming if you have to do that for multiple properties. So, I would like to share with you a Select statement that I normally use to display all the current values of System Properties in use by... [More]

Thankfully, it's really easy to fix. In the Migration Collections application from the Select Action menu choose "Define Related... [More]

Hello! Time for a non-IFIX post. A rare problem popped up. A customer was trying to install Maximo 7.6 to a new Windows Server 2012 R2. They launched the installer from a directory on the E: drive. They had expanded all of the Maximo 7.6 images into that directory. When the Launchpad window came up, however, the options area was empty. We checked DEP, Administrator rights, Firewall, anti-virus, everything. Nothing was out of place. We had a few cases when this happened with Maximo 7.5 on Windows Server 2008, and a technote for it... [More]
