Are you new to Maximo Multitenancy? Have you tried to login with the usual administrator user maxadmin and get the following error? With Maximo Multitenancy installed, there is a different way to log in for administrators. On the login page, you will need to click on the "Administrator Login" link that is above the language. This will then have the "Tenant" field appear. By default, the tenant code is MTM. You should now be able to login as maxadmin successfully.

Hello! Time for a non-IFIX post. A rare problem popped up. A customer was trying to install Maximo 7.6 to a new Windows Server 2012 R2. They launched the installer from a directory on the E: drive. They had expanded all of the Maximo 7.6 images into that directory. When the Launchpad window came up, however, the options area was empty.

If a precision update is made to any bin field that exceeds this default value, then all the related fields will be updated accordingly to avoid potential precision errors. The list of attributes below point to an "authority bin... [More]
