I'm always on the lookout for handy administrative scripts, and this one comes by way of a request from the IBM
from java.util import ArrayList
# Initialize Communities Administration
# Get the list of members from the specified community
for commInfo in commsInfo:
# Populate ownerList with all members that have owner access
You can modify the report format as desired by controlling how the data is printed (last line of the script).

If you are either a very new or veteran Cloud customer with IBM, you may find that there are times when you need assistance from the IBM team. If you have questions about the current offerings and what is included with each, this video (YouTube | IBM Media Center) will provide the details you need. Nina Brown from the Support team describes what's included with Basic, Advanced and Premier support as well as the roles and responsibilities for customers and IBM related to specific products. We hope that the animation provides a bit of levity for this topic - there's no reason why learning can't be fun!

I ran into a situation today where I needed the default role mappings for the various Connections applications. One way to do this is to review each application in the admin console for an out-of-the-box installation. This, of course, is very tedious work. Another way is to use wsadmin's AdminApp.view command to collect the information via a script. One minor downside to this approach is that it gathers all applications and not just the Connections apps. However, you can simply ignore those in the report.

We had a slow start with videos in 2016 but things have picked up recently and we have a lot of news to share! Some of our recent video postings include topics like Domino Off-line Services, LEI, Sametime Policies, Watson Services and IBM Verse Offline. If you want to learn more about a new feature or have questions related to an installation that you're working through, we have the video for you.

One of the things that immediately frustrated me when I went to install my MCU was the slightly obscure fact that RHEL 6 requires quite a few dependencies. We don't make this very obvious in our documentation, and if you do happen to notice, the link we give you brings you to this technote, "Lis
Now the technote is accurate in what it lists. My problem is that it's not set up to just copy and paste. Moreover, why on earth do we require manually installing this stuff? Why can't we release an RPM that does this automatically?
If you just want to install the dependencies, and get on with your life, here's a single command you can copy and paste (remember to be root, and that this is for Red Hat 6.X only!):
yum install dialog glibc-devel glibc-devel.i686 glibc-common zlib-devel.i686 zlib-devel libgcc.i686 libgcc libs
Now instead of being content with that on my environment, what I decided to do was make a dummy package, that would handle the dependencies for me, as well as ensure that httpd was NOT installed (since that prevents the MCU install from proceeding). If you have plans to install a large number of MCUs, this may make sense to replicate. I know practically nothing about package management, but there is a nifty tool called FPM (effing package management) that is super simple to use. (For details on FPM, see http
What you need is the latest MCU from Fix Central (htt
Steps (perform these on a Red Hat 6.X box):
1) Install FPM
yum install ruby-devel gcc
gem install fpm
2) Use FPM to build the dummy MCU package. Note that specifying 32 bit versions of dependencies ("-d") requires a different syntax than yum.
fpm -s dir -t rpm -n wallaceMCU -d dialog -d glibc-devel -d 'gli
Explanation of options:
-d : dependency
-s : source for the rpm is a directory
-t : target is an rpm file
-n : name of the resulting file
The end result is an rpm file named "wallaceMCU.rpm". You can install this on your MCU server by copying it over and running "yum install wallaceMCU.rpm". That action will install all dependencies, make sure Apache (httpd) is not installed, and will extract the MCU code itself into "/So
