It is around that time of year again when budgets are released, so the cash pours in(or seen the current economic climate more like trickles in..) to do a Maximo or TPAE upgrade or installation.
With that I have noticed over the years recurring questions of many of you out there how any redundant or not operated Maximo Add-ons or Industry Solutions can be un-installed.
The simple answer is , Maximo Add-ons or Industry Solutions cannot be un-installed.
To name some Add-ons or IS' , but by no means all of the widely used... [More]
In Maximo 7.1 and 7.5, storeroom locations are not status-able objects. This means that storerooms that have no inventory items in them, and are no longer in use for any reason, are still available in applications and location lookup dialogs. Currently there is a Request for Enhancement record created to add this functionality to future releases of Tpae, however there is a way to set this up to prevent these storerooms from being visible to users using current releases, without significant administration efforts.
In this blog entry we will look at reducing high email listener email fetch latency which may result when there is be a need to frequently create service requests from IMAP messages that have large documents attached.
To keep things simple, the constants will be a Tpae 7.5.0.X environment and a simple email server program both running on the same system. The initial conditions are the MXServer shut down and a batch of 6 emails, each with a 15 MB PDF attachment, sitting on the email server. The... [More]
For the first time in Maximo Asset Management 7.6, you'll get to see a set of videos that describe a subset of the enhancements that are included in the release. These videos are short and sweet (the longest is just five minutes!) but will help to introduce you to the usability enhancements.
The videos are helpfully divided into two playlists, depending on your level of interest. The first playlist is called Overview of the usability enhancements and is aimed at anyone who wants to get a high-level summary of the enhancements. The... [More]
An important part of of any software implementation is data loading.
In Maximo / TPAE, one of the preferred solutions for that end is MIF or Maximo Integration Framework.
The advantage over other routines is that it goes through the MBOs and Field Classes validations to enforce all Maximo business logic over the transacted data.
If you are a Maximo user, by now you probably know that we may use flat files to load data into Maximo through MIF. Easily enough you just have to go to the application, click a button and load... [More]

Previously I had posted a blog on creating a horizontal cluster across multiple nodes in WebSphere 8.5.5. If you haven't read that posting, please head on over Clustering with Maximo and WebSphere 8.5.5 - Part 1 - Configuration and take a look. Today we will be continuing forward with JMS configuration. I was going to do this series in 2 parts, but I will separate this out in 3 parts due to the length of the topic.
In the original blog posting we configured the following.

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]
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]
