Hello and happy new year! We have recently added information to the Maximo Asset Management wiki for installing Maximo Asset Management v7.5 and v7.6 within a WebSphere Application Server v8.5.5 Liberty profile environment.

Automation scripts can reduce the time that you spend on automating tasks because you do not need to recompile Java™ files or restart the server. And now, in version 7.6, automation scripts are expanded and enhanced to provide even more opportunities to save time. You can now do the following:

All email messages have or should have a content-type header field which will determine how that email is handled. The Email Listener is not a true, full service email client and is therefore not as flexible and forgiving as email clients [such as Notes & Outlook] in handling the full range of email formats. The purpose of this article is to set the expectations for what content-types the listener will process. Note that the content-type type attribute of an email is distinct from character set which denotes how text for... [More]

Most of the mentioned tools using an approach of a 1:1 import of data, means you have to take care of data quality before you start import.... [More]
Today I am going to provide a workaround to avoid a common error that I usually face when testing Maximo Upgrade scenarios on DB2 databases. If you missed my previous "Maximo Upgrade Tips" entries, check them through this link .
One of the common errors that can happen during an upgrade of Maximo Base Services from versions 7.1.x to 7.5.x on DB2 databases is related with the application heap size configuration parameter of the database - applheapsz , usually set by default as 1024 or 2048 depending of what where... [More]
