This post will cover some of the same ground as a series I published last year . Those postings went into depth on setting up a new WebSphere Application server, database server, and setting up application server security with LDAP, but didn't go into much depth about doing the WebSphere application server "migration". using the term migration is misleading--I am recreating the Maximo application server on a new server.
I decided recently that I need to re-image the Windows server that hosts four of... [More]
Out of Memory condition could occur when deploying ear file in Websphere console or when running Maximo 7.5
Additional configuration from Websphere is needed to avoid getting error: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space in the log.
Open the WebSphere Application Server administration site by typing http://hostname:port/ibm/console .
The port is the number of the HTTP administrative port, which is 9060 by default. Type an ID (any ID without a password) and log in to it.

So you've configured or are configuring Maximo to authenticate with a directory server. You've set the base entries to determine which Organizational Unit's you will be bringing into your repository and you realize; you don't want all the users in each of the OU's to have the option to authenticate (in all authenticated mapping), you don't want to configure base entries for many different OU's bringing in users you don't need to exist in the repository, you may just want users from a specific group be brought in...

After working supporting Maximo for the past 9 years I have started posting to share some of what I have learned. In my time here I have spoken to so many different kinds of Maximo users, from the super advanced, to the user who is seeing it for the first time. My hopes are to share my knowledge, have people see the product in a different way and to spark conversation about the versatile software called Maximo.
Sometimes I wonder, automatic or manual, which is better. I say that anything we can automate let's do it... [More]
QUICK OVERVIEW ......... If you know how it works and just want to look at logging, look below for 'Basic Debugging'
VMMSYNC is a crontask provided within Maximo products. As with all crontasks it can be set to run at regular intervals.
The crontask makes contact with a component of WebSphere called VMM (Virtual Member Manager) via API calls.
The calls will be actioned against a federated repository and will request information on users, groups and group assignments from within the federated... [More]
In LDAPSYNC, if a large chunk of data takes a long time to process and the processing time exceeds the Active Directory’s idle connection timeout setting ( MaxConnIdleTime ), it can cause the Active Directory to close the connection which leads to synchronization failure.
LDAPSYNC fails with errors like these:
BMXAA6752E - Group synchronization could not be performed because of error connection closed. The error count was 148. See the associated message. Correct the... [More]
You've downloaded and installed WebSphere 8.5.5, the IHS and the Plugin. You have everything up and running, Maximo deployed and want to use the web server to access Maximo or load balance to multiple JVM's, so why isn't it working? Why are you receiving "Page Not Found" errors? In most cases it's likely a key step was missed that is automated with the Middleware\Maximo install when using WebSphere 7, that step is the Plugin Configuration.
During the install of WebSphere 8.5.5, you may of only installed the... [More]

We often receive requests or in most cases, by the time the PMR reaches us it's become a complaint, that a user received a message that they were about to change the status of X amount of work orders and selected OK anyhow.
Well, X amount can be quite a large amount, and changing their status in one shot is not always the desired outcome that the user's supervisors were looking for.
So the next question after setting X amount of records back to their previous statuses, is how can we prevent this from... [More]

Hi again everyone!
I guess now that the Pulse Conference in sunny Las Vegas (a welcome change from the sub-freezing chill of New England's late winter) has come and gone, it's a good time to look back on my experiences from the demo floor.
As usual (and luckily hahha) my experience was an extremely positive one. Conferences like Pulse give the client as well as the support engineer an opportunity to meet face to face. This is always good because it gives me a chance to meet clients that I've spoken... [More]
