Maximo Everyplace is a product in IBM's Mobile Portfolio for Maximo Asset Management. This is not a stand a lone solution like you may have previously used or are using such as Maximo Mobile, or Maximo Anywhere. It is a solution that allows you to view core Maximo applications from your mobile device, by allowing you to create scaled down applications via the Application Designer and format your start center portlets for easy reading. Also this is now included in Maixmo 7.6 out of the box! So you will likely notice when first starting... [More]
Today I am going to talk about and show you the basics steps I like to use when diagnosing a Maximo won't start or you can't login to Maximo issue. See the steps I have put together: 1. Login to WebSphere console and stop the MXServer 2. Navigate to the systemout.log which is by default in \ Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\ ctgAppServer01 \logs\MXServer and delete this systemout.log file. 3. Go back to WebSphere console and restart the MXServer creating a new fresh systemout.log 4. If you get the green arrow... [More]

In a previous versions of the Web Sphere did observe the messaging engine behavior when after the fail over, it couldn’t obtain an exclusive lock and register in SIBOWNER table because the the failed server kept holding lock on a data store. That would lead to cluster restart and application down time. In new WAS8.5 the option “ Restrict long running locks” was introduced and the algorithm used behind ths future allows the switch phase to be quick with no service interruption Please see the attached screen shot fro location of...

Yes it is possible and the best way is to take the offline backup of the source database db2 “backup database maximo to <directory> include logs” then on the target server. db2 “restore database maximo from <directory > taken at <timestamp> redirect generate script maximo.clp “ and then execute the generated maximo.clp sript The restore will autocratically upgrade maxmo database from v9.7 to v10.5 I hope this is helpful. P.S For more details please use this link: ... [More]
Today I am putting this blog together to provide a little information on VMMSync and LDAPSync, two methods used to bring users from a directory server into Maximo. There are two directory servers that are supported, MSAD - (Microsoft Active Directory) and TDS (Tivoli Directory Server). LDAPSYNC process was developed to copy user data from the Active Directory LDAP server to the Maximo table structures and enable authentication to Maximo. This tool communicates directly with the Active Directory and uses straight Active Directory queries... [More]
I didn't want August to end without a blog entry. I had lined up several projects to work on during the month. Unfortunately, I was unable to complete any of them. I concluded that one of them (pulling user, groups and group membership information from Maximo into Microsoft Active Directory) was too narrowly focused. Another one (configuring SSL on WebSphere) was missing an important element: it doesn't require making any changes to Maximo itself. It was too broadly focused, and not of particular interest specifically to... [More]
Please use the fallowing string to start a workflow that would change the workorder staus for workorderid 37 http://192.168.1.8:9080/maximo/rest/mbo/workorder/37?&_lid=maxadmin&_lpwd=maxadmin&wfname=TEST Workflow TEST must have NO interactions.
It is important to maintain a good health of the database and run Reorganization Utility on tables and indexes to help Optimizer keep the best access path. So please run the following sql that would build an executable statements that need to be run to provide a report. Build statement: select 'reorgchk update statistics on table',substr(rtrim(tabschema)||'.'||rtrim(tabname),1,50),';' from syscat.tables where type = 'T' and tabschema='MAXIMO' Sample of the executable statement: reorgchk update...

Please use the fallowing sql that would create ALTER statements then execute them SELECT 'ALTER TABLE '||TBNAME||' ALTER COLUMN '||NAME||'SET DATA TYPE '||'VARGRAPHIC'||'('||LENGTH||')'||';' FROM SYSIBM.SYSCOLUMNS where TBCREATOR ='MAXIMO' AND COLTYPE='VARCHAR'
Over the years I have had several clients state that they attempted to synchronize the Nodes from the WebSphere Console and were unsuccessful. If you are unable to sync the Nodes from within the WebSphere console than you can do this manually. Here are the steps to manually sync the Nodes. Make sure CellManager service is started and Nodeagent service is stopped. (StopNode.bat) Open a command prompt window and cd to C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin and run syncnode hostname and then you will get prompted for... [More]
It was brought to my attention that after installing Maximo Anywhere 126.96.36.199 a new plug in file is copied to the Installation Manager shared folders, once installed only this plug in will be read when displaying the installation panels. Now the problem with this is, if you decide to install another version of Maximo Anywhere to the same server under a new package group which is supported by the Installation Manager some panels may be missing from the installation process. Specifically panels regarding the Android SDK. With this... [More]
In most of the core Maximo applications, the process of changing status of a record is fairly standard. Usually, the record starts it's life in WAPPR (Waiting for Approval), DRAFT or INACTIVE. You have a Change Status Toolbar button and you can proceed to change the status as per the options available in this Change Status dialog. There are some applications however, where the process of changing status is different and a bit more complicated to the one mentioned above. In this blog entry, I am going to show you an example where a... [More]
Hi, I am currently working on requirement where I need to send every update that happens on object SR and worklog to an external system. Having SR as my child object I have enabled event listener on it. But I still do not see messages following out when an update is made on worklog. I had a look at one of the websites which asked me to use the relationship - worklog which does not have any where clause. I tried using it but then I get this below error when ever I create a SR - BMXAA7387E - While attempting to retrieve 25001 of WORKLOG,... [More]
